The April issue of CM/Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring Senior Editor Richard DiPaolo''s Maintenance Matters article on prolonging your roof''s life with basic maintenance.
DiPaolo states that many facilities are turning to preventative or dealing with deferred roof maintenance by hoping to prolong maintenance of the renewal kind.
He notes that when it comes to quality inspections and significant repairs, a skilled professional should be consulted.
DiPaolo adds that while there are steps facility managers and building service contractors can take in the short-term to prolong the replacement of their current roof, remember that a roof is only built to last as long as the manufacturer''s recommendation.
According to DiPaolo, some features like green roofs might be more expensive upfront; however, experts have the data to report the return on investments beyond being environmentally responsible.
