Being PROactive vs. REactive
The roofing Industry Alliance for Progress conducted a study in 2003. They determined that the average life cycle of a low sloped roofing system was 17 years. More importantly, they determined that building owners that protected their roofing assets with a maintenance contract were rewarded with an average roof life of 21 years. Conversely, the average lifespan was only 13 years for the building owners and facility managers who choose to maintain their roofs in a reactive manner, without a maintenance contract.

In Progress Before & After
Proactive maintenance programs address each owner’s individual needs and typically include annual inspections, documentation of roof conditions and the maintenance/repair work itself. Most building owners are not aware of why roof maintanence is so important
For example, leaks and water seepage typically do not occur until after the roofing system or insulation has worn down or there has been deck damage. We will explain the information to you so that we are sure that you as our customer fully understands the composition of their roofing systems and we will advise you on the proper maintenance and service needed to ensure the system performs as expected. The earlier you catch the warning signs of a leak, the fewer things that they will need to have repaired.
To save money, most building owners wait until obvious problems are apparent before conducting maintenance. This type of reactive maintenance will, in fact, increase roof life-cycle costs. Spot repairs made during a proactive maintenance visit are far less costly than replacing membranes, insulation and decking if a leak occurs down the road.
Proactive maintenance helps identify potential problem-causing areas, thus decreasing life-cycle costs. According to data gathered in a 15-year alliance between Firestone Building Products and ProLogis, a global provider of distribution facilities, with a proactive maintenance schedule in place, the average life-cycle cost is 14 cents per square foot. The average reactive maintenance life-cycle costs are 25 cents per square foot. a roofing system with proactive maintenance can have an average roof life of 21 years compared to 13 years with a reactive maintenance program, depending on the roofing system and building type.
Setting up a proactive maintenance schedule should be based on the environmental conditions surrounding the building. Working with you as the building owner’s regarding the target roof life goal, we can set up a proactive maintenance and service schedule on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual or bi-annual basis. We also recommend maintenance checks be done immediately after severe storms involving high winds, heavy snowfalls, hail and downpours.
Areas subjected to high foot traffic, drainage areas and details such as pitch pockets, metal coping joints and edge flashing at gutters would receive special attention during periodic inspections.
Ambatt Roofing offer's a competitive maintenance service, a roof assessment program along with an extensive contractor workmanship warranty.
Many manufacturers’ warranties typically define periodic inspections and maintenance as “owner responsibilities.” These responsibilities can include items such as a limited time frame in which to notify the manufacturer of any leaks, payment of non-warranted repairs, providing roof access and the removal of overburdens on the system.
Not all types of damage to the roofing system are covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. Cuts and punctures are typically not covered by standard warranties. Many incidents occur during construction when other trade installers (HVAC or other items) are working on the roof.You as the building owner should insist that a protective layer is laid down over the roofing system before work by other trades begins. And do not to take on maintenance on your own by using non-specified materials to seal and patch leaks themselves, unless it is an emergency to protect property. Often, “temporary fixes” will end up costing them more in the future it by doing it yourself incorrectly, it may void the warranty.

An "out of sight, out of mind" attitude toward roofing systems is dangerous. It's also poor asset management. Too many building owners and managers have been burned by premature roof failure. When water leaks into a building, hard assets, corporate profits — and reputations — start taking a beating.
When it comes to roofing, we frequently believe that if our roofs are not leaking, we don't need to bother with them. However, this attitude does not jive with reality. Here are a few facts*:
More than 80 percent of all roofs are replaced prematurely.
The average building owner will spend more than $127,500 on roofing over the life of the building.
The average cost of a new commercial roof is more than $42,500 (10,000 sq. ft. average)
Repairs, maintenance and/or roof restoration costs thousands of dollars less than roof replacement.
Roof maintenance programs are tax deductible.
Roof maintenance programs typically cost about one to three percent per year of the estimated total replacement costs (maintenance cost depends on coverage).
A roof maintenance program can save up to 50 percent over the life of a 30-year roof compared to replacing it every 15-20 years.
A roof can leak for days, weeks, or months before it is noticed inside the building.
