It is time to prepare for the season of re-roofs when most of the schools are unoccupied and work on the roof can be done no matter how smelly or loud without disturbing instruction.
The real point of re-roof is useable life extension. Ty Stranger-Thorsen, president of Nations Roof of Colorado, a strong advocate of aggressive preventive roof maintenance, says any re-roof project should begin with an annual inspection protocol. Unlike the maintenance of mechanical systems, which tend to receive regular attention, the preventive maintenance of the roof is often forgotten until it begins to leak. An aggressive preventive maintenance program is the best defense against wasting scarce resources. That program should include an annual inspection of each roof in the inventory, not just the ones with problems.
