Roofing Works: Why Now is the Best Time for Your Business

Maintenance of your property’s roof is crucial for the smooth operation of your business. British weather can be unpredictable, and If your roof is not in optimal condition when these downpours occur, leaks, structural damage or even Roof collapses could ensue, leading to disruptions, property damage, and financial losses. These are just some of the reasons why now is the prime time for roofing works and how it can benefit your business.

Reduced Precipitation 

During the summer, rainfall is generally at its lowest point in the year. This provides a window of opportunity for roof maintenance to be carried out without interruption and stoppages. If it rains while carrying out roofing works, the surface will become slippery and hazardous to operatives, meaning works may need to stop to mitigate risks. Additionally, if a leak is already present and repairs are taking place, it could damage the repairs before completion, potentially impacting the effectiveness of repairs.

Asset Protection

Roofs naturally degrade over time due to ageing materials and weather exposure, making them susceptible to leaks and damage over time if left unchecked. Without regular roof inspections, hidden splits and cracks in materials and structural issues can worsen unnoticed, potentially resulting in equipment damage and destruction of stored records. By conducting timely roof surveys, utilising IFM’s experienced engineers, you can identify and address issues early, safeguarding your assets and preventing costly repairs.

Long-Term Cost Savings

While roof surveys incur a cost, they are more cost-effective compared to emergency repairs that could have been prevented. Timely inspections help detect problems sooner, reducing the extent of damage and associated repair costs. Neglecting roof maintenance for an extended period may necessitate a full roof replacement or extensive repairs, leading to higher expenses in the long run. Therefore, investing in regular roof surveys is a cost-effective strategy to avoid future financial burdens.
