Out of Sight, Out of Mind = Out of Pocket
We’re all familiar with the phrase, “out of sight, out of mind.” This rings especially true when it comes to maintaining a roofing system, which is often ignored because it’s rarely within direct view.
However, roofs get the unrelenting worst that weather can throw at it—snow, hail, rain, heat, cold. Without regular maintenance, it will inevitably risk premature deterioration and aging, often leading to unexpected, large-scale, high-cost repairs. By taking preventive steps, you can help keep your roof in top working order, thereby lowering your total roofing expenses, preventing costly emergency repairs and extending your roof’s service life by as much as 10 to 15 years.
In fact, according to a study by the National Roofing Contractors Association and Association for Facilities Engineering, preventive maintenance increases roof life by 30% to 100%, depending upon the type and condition of your roofing system.
A great way to do this is through a roof maintenance program, such as TremCare™. With TremCare, trained roofing technicians perform inspections, housekeeping and preventive maintenance on a regular, scheduled basis. Issues can be detected and addressed promptly, thus preventing costly emergency repairs.
Carefully tailored to suit your specific building and budget, TremCare programs are available for any type of roofing system and include access to OLI®, Tremco’s online information system that manages all roofing data in a secure, password-protected location, eliminating the need for paper records.
TremCare programs are offered in three levels, with increasing degrees of support:
For those who wish to manage their own roofing assets, a Tremco roofing technician will inspect your roofing system, conduct an extensive inventory of your roof’s condition to establish immediate needs, and then record all data in OLI for your use. Then, you can continue to monitor, maintain and repair your roofing systems as you see fit.
This program includes a customized plan based upon your specific roofing needs and budget, along with the following services:
- Housekeeping – All incidental debris will be removed from the roof, drains and gutters during scheduled, periodic housekeeping appointments.
- Preventive Maintenance – Your roofing system will be maintained in its present condition by making minor repairs to the membrane and flashing systems. Preventive maintenance is not designed to restore neglected roofs to new condition.
- 24-Hour Emergency Leak Response – Leaks can be reported 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using a toll-free hotline that logs your call for priority treatment.
In addition to the services provided through TremCare Gold, this program offers free repairs for leaking roofs, simplifying your maintenance budget. TremCare Platinum is intended for non-Tremco roofing systems or Tremco roofs with expired warranties. Neglected roofs may require repairs or upgrades before TremCare Platinum can be instituted.
Don’t let “out of mind, out of sight” lead to expensive “out-of-pocket” costs. To find out which TremCare program best suits your specific roofing needs, contact Kristen Weiss at 877-432-1132.
