As a building/property owner or facility administrator, one of your many concerns is keeping your roof in good shape. Some do that by handling roof problems as they arise. Others schedule regular roof maintenance to get ahead of issues proactively before they become a bigger problem and major catastrophe.

As a local roofing expert in Dayton, Ohio, Dependable Construction is committed to helping you keep your roof looking as good as new for a long time. First, here’s what you need to know about proactive and reactive maintenance.

Proactive vs. Reactive Maintenance

Education combined with strategic budgeting is a powerhouse duo in managing a building. To make the most of your investment, you need to understand what must be done and how much should be allocated simultaneously.

Which is better: proactive or reactive maintenance? The great thing about proactive maintenance is that it helps you deal with roof issues in advance. By contrast, reactive maintenance could come too late; by the time you finally get to it, the damage your roof has sustained could be beyond repair. Building/ property owners and facility administrators who react to problems as they happen will pay more per square foot after damage has happened than those who invest in regular roof inspections and repairs. Proactively maintained roofs can also last up to 8 years longer than structures that were re-actively kept.

Deal with Roof Issues Early On

Given these factors; degeneration, weathering, wear and tear on roofs is inevitable. This is where proactive roof maintenance comes in. You’d be surprised how much you can save if you decide to act up on roof issues ahead of time.
