Roofing FAQ

What type of roofing system do I have on my building?

Believe it or not, most owners/managers do not know what type of roofing systems they have on their buildings, what type and thickness of insulation they have or even the easiest way to access the roof on a particular building. It is difficult to manage the roofing life cycle if you don’t even know what roofing system you have or what your expectation for that system is. Maintaining an up-to-date inventory of all buildings and their roofing systems is vital in maintaining one’s roofing asset.

However, it doesn’t make these questions any less important, especially in times when roofing system issues are occurring.

-How do I know if my warranty is effective and up to date?

One of the biggest mistakes made by the recipient of a new roofing system is the lack of maintenance performed after the initial installation.  Almost all manufacturers’ warranties call for a regular maintenance plan to keep the warranty effective and up-to-date.  Taking that a step further, a preventive maintenance program not only minimize leaks, it will keep the roofing insulation dry and intact during the life of the roof increasing the odds that the insulation can be “re-used” during the next installation.  This not only reduces the cost of the 2nd installation (almost 30-40%), it also keeps materials out of the landfills resulting in a net positive environmental impact. At Whitco Roofing we use top rate preventive maintenance strategies tailored to your roof.

The roof, for the most part, is out of sight and out of mind. Ignoring the roof often leads to premature roof failure, which means water can invade the building and wreak havoc with people, equipment, and productivity. Clearly, regular preventive roofing maintenance should by a major priority for building owners and facilities managers. A preventive maintenance program provides a number of measurable benefits. For instance, it can: Increase the expected service life of a roof by as much as 50%, Reduce roof related expenses to free up capital for other uses, Cut the time and effort required to address emergency repairs.

Implementing a regular, periodic roof maintenance program is critical to validating the warranty, prolonging the life, and avoiding failure of a commercial roof.
