Proactively maintained roofs last an average of 8 more years than reactively maintained roofs.
Your roof is a HUGE investment and you should protect that investment!
Proactively manage your roof with annual or biannual inspections and maintenance, just like you would the other assets in your business (i.e. technology or machinery).
Don’t wait until you have a major incident on your roof.
Annual roof maintenance cost only 1% to 3% of the cost of a commercial roof replacement.
We know that saving money is a priority when it comes to running your business.
Maintenance pays for itself by saving on
Unscheduled roof repairs
Deteriorated roof deck
and the small cost of the interruption or distraction from your business
Building owners and facility managers who inspected and repaired their roofs routinely were able to identify potential problems before they happened. As a result, they spent an average of only 14¢ per square foot annually for maintenance. On the other hand, owners and managers who reacted to problems spent an average of 25¢ per square foot annually.
With a proactive maintenance plan, its all about identifying minor issues before they become major.
Keep the investment over your head working so it protects the one below!
How can you proactively maintain?
Schedule a fall and spring inspection. We have maintenance and inspection programs that are designed to help your roof last longer.
In February, CEI was called on to the roof of the Art Van Headquarters in Warren, MI. They were asked to do something out of the normal scope of work. CEI service crews took to the roof to help hang a poster in remembrance of Art Van Elslander.
Art Van Elslander was a Detroit icon and the founder of Art Van Furniture. Mr. Van worked his way up from humble beginning to owning one of the nations largest furniture companies. He donated a good portion of his fortune to the city of Detroit. He helped keep alive the Thanksgiving parade and well as feeding the hungry and healing the sick.
Art Van Elslander had a big heart for Detroit and will be missed greatly. CEI was honored to be apart of remembering him with helping hang the banner.
We are moving our way into the holiday season with Thanksgiving just a week away. The upcoming season means that more time is going to be spent with family and vacations than in this past summer and fall months. It also means that there is going to be some drastic changes in our weather (at least in Michigan).
It could be likely that an unfortunate event could happen with the roof of your building. This can be a stressful event, especially if it’s over the holidays!
CEI is here to help!
