As a business owner, facilities manager or building manager, planning for regular maintenance, especially commercial roof repair is an absolute must.
This weeks article covers and discusses the benefits of commercial roof repair and the preventative measures you can take to ensure you don’t spend your entire budget in one hit!
Reduce Roof Maintenance Costs
Unfortunately, roofs tend to be one of the most temperamental structures in a buildings framework. They tend to be fully supported one minute and then the complete opposite the next. A good and cost effective way to prepare for the worst is to consider a regular maintenance plan.
Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM)
PPM or Planned Preventative Maintenance is arguably one of the best ways for business owners to provide regular and reliable building maintenance.
The best way to describe PPM is to look at it in the same way as a cars MOT. It basically means that a series of tests will be completed, highlighting areas for improvement and/or areas that require immediate attention.
The beauty of PPM is that some organisations will offer a monthly agreement so there is no need for an initial, large upfront payment. It can be carried through-out the year, making your commercial roof repair is much more affordable.
The Benefits of Commercial Roof Repair
When a full commercial roof repair is completed using a PPM system, only fully trained and qualified contractors will complete the works.
If there are any serious immediate works that require any attention, a full plan of action will be constructed and a schedule of works will be put into place.
Why would you not want a well maintained roof? It’s been proven that a well maintained roof looks a hundreds times better than something that is simply left to rot through-out the year.
When you take the time to incorporate PPM, it’s good to remember that it is a preventative approach, not reactive.
