Is Your Roof Ready for the Upcoming Year?
With a new year comes a new annual budget for your business. There’s a lot to account for when it comes to planning out your 2023 expenses, and this year having a contingency plan is as important as ever. As your trusted commercial roofing company, Moser Roofing Solutions is here to remind you not to overlook your roof as you plan out your business budget for the rest of the year!
Your roof plays a crucial role in protecting your business. If not properly maintained and cared for, it can result in major additional expenses for your business. It’s essential to account for your roof as you plan ahead. Here are a few key commercial roofing factors to consider as you make sure your business is ready for 2023.
Review Warranties and Your Roof’s Expected Lifespan
Is your roof still under warranty? Was it recently installed? Or, is it nearing the end of its lifespan? Newer roofs tend to carry lower ongoing costs, as they’re less likely to need repairs in a given year. As your roof ages, however, maintenance costs can start to increase.
Make it a yearly habit to review the status of your roof, as well as any warranties that may or may not still be in effect. This includes workmanship warranties from your commercial roofer as well as material warranties that may become relevant in the event that repairs or a replacement become necessary.
This annual review may feel like a chore, but it’s important to know the status of your roof at all times. Understanding where your roof is in its lifespan will help you plan better when it comes to potential roofing costs in 2023.
Schedule an Inspection
Even better than taking stock of your roof yourself is to have a reliable commercial roofing company inspect it thoroughly. Scheduling a full diagnostic inspection is perhaps the smartest decision you can make when it comes to business planning and budgeting.
A professional commercial roofing company like Moser Roofing Solutions will be able to fully assess the state of your roof and identify any potential problem areas. This helps avoid major roofing issues, such as leaks, which can interrupt your business operations and create significant and unexpected expenses.Here at Moser Roofing Solutions, we offer professional commercial roof inspection services to keep you updated on the condition of your flat or low-slope commercial roof. Getting a better understanding of the state of your roof will help you more effectively plan and budget for the next year.
Need a Replacement Soon? Start Budgeting and Planning Now
If your roof inspection reveals that your roof will need to be replaced within the next few years, the time is now to start planning and budgeting. Timelines for roof replacement projects continue to be much longer than usual due to continued supply chain issues. That means careful planning—including choosing a roofer and ordering materials—is essential for replacing your roof efficiently and minimizing disruptions to your business operations.
In addition, since a commercial roof replacement represents a significant expense, it’s crucial to start budgeting and saving immediately. While a savvy commercial roofing company can work around your budget, having more time to save will make your life as a business owner that much easier.
Plan for the Storm Season
The weather has a major impact on the condition of your roof. Cold winters full of deep freezes and heavy snowfall can take a toll over time, while severe storms often bring high winds, heavy rain, and of course, hail that can suddenly and severely damage your roof.
Because storm season can be such a harsh time for your roof, it’s important to plan ahead for this time of year. You should plan on having your roof inspected and repaired well before storm season arrives. It’s also a good idea to have a roofer on standby, and also to review the insurance claims process in the event that a major storm damages your roof. Planning ahead for these contingencies will help avoid unnecessary stress and expedite the process of repairing your roof should the need arise.
Invest in Ongoing Commercial Roof Maintenance
Perhaps the most important thing you can do to keep your roof in excellent condition and avoid surprise expenses is to invest in ongoing commercial roof maintenance. Roof maintenance includes regular inspections and expedited repairs that help ensure your roof is prepared for the next round of threatening weather.
