Roofs are a critical component of any building. It is important to understand what some common issues are with roofs in order to make simple repairs. These small repairs can result in large savings when a ‘catastrophic incident’ is later avoided. These savings can move far beyond the cost to replace an entire roof. Maintaining your roof on a commercial property ensures that your tenants/business operations can continue unhindered, while maintaining the roof on your personal home can assure you that your home will be safe in storms.
