Certified Preventative Maintenance Program Atlanta

Certified Preventative Maintenance Professional

The best choice for your commercial roofing preventative maintenance program.

Extend the Life of Your Roof

A commercial roof is a enormous investment for a building owner, so do not install a new roof and forget about it. If you would like the roof to perform well, you have to maintain it. If you do not, you are putting your building at risk of damage from leaks, not to mention the risk of your coverage being jeopardized.

Regular preventative maintenance can help you preserve your roof and appreciate it for many years of reliable service. Hicks Roofing is a GAF Certified Maintenance Professional, backed by North America’s largest roofing manufacturer.

Here are some facts to consider:

  • Studies have shown that proactively maintained roofs last up to 60% longer than reactively maintained roofs.*
  • Less than 1% of roof failure is caused by defective roofing materials; leaving poor installation, severe weather, and lack of maintenance to blame.
  • Typically, the cost of a couple of service calls and maintenance repairs can equal the yearly cost of a maintenance contract.**

What Wears Out A Roof?

  • Exposure: Either long-term exposure to the elements (sun, water, freeze-thaw, etc.) or short-term exposure to damaging air pollutants and chemicals
  • Structural Movement: Building settlement or expansion/contraction not accommodated by the roofing system
  • Biological Growth: Vegetation in areas of standing water or algae
  • Not Fixing Problems Promptly: This can decrease a roofs lifespan, if a small problem is not repaired, then a large amount of insulation can be damaged.
  • Forgetting About Maintenance: This is perhaps the biggest cause of premature roof failure
  • Change In The Use Of The Building: Increase in the interior relative humidity of a building can cause severe condensation problems within the roofing system
