The Average Annual Cost of Good and Bad Roof Systems Over a Twenty-Five to Thirty Year Life-Cycle

Why Roof Systems Fail

Early Commercial Roof System failures result from poor workmanship during installation.

And, the typical labor warranty is designed to exclude the very type of roof failures that can cost buyers for many, many years.

The best approach is to influence labor processes and warranty language in a way that protects the buyers assets while making contractors accountable for the work they perform.

Oversight assures contractors are not taking shortcuts while documenting procedures.

Annual Maintenance Requirements

Short life-cycles are directly associated with increased annual maintenance for the life of the roof system. These expenses typically run between $3,000 and $5,000 annually.

Mandatory repairs can exceed $10,000 annually for large repairs that result from poor workmanship during roof installation.




Elective & Routine Maintenance

Elective repairs and other annual expenses include Preventative Maintenance, routine services and inspections. These cost are relative to keeping roof assets in top condition and prolonging the serviceable life while improving the ROI.

Unanticipated repair expenses proportionately reduce the Owners ROI.

Extending Serviceable Life-Cycles
Oversight helps to assure your roof system is installed using best practices. Roof systems installed with RRO oversight tend to have serviceable life-cycles that range between 25 and 30 years.
