Maintenance and leak repairs are a large part of our customers needs. Our technicians pride themselves on their ability to locate and solve immediate roofing issues. A technician is always available and will respond in a timely manner.
Studies have shown that a roof that is not regularly maintained will only last about half of its expected service life. Don't assume that a warranty will help. Almost all manufacturers of roofing materials state specifically in their warranty that the warranty is void if the roof is not maintained. If you can't show that the roof has been maintained, you will not have a case when you try to make a claim on a supposed warranty issue.
Asset Management Program
Within two years of a commercial roof’s installation, potential for leaks will exist; if routine maintenance has not been completed. Far too often, the lack of maintenance and improper inspections ultimately cause a roof to fail. The average estimated life span of a commercial roof is seven to ten years, but with annual inspections and routine maintenance that number can be extended up to twenty years and longer.
Why it is needed:
Will save you thousands of unnecessary dollars
Will extend the life of your roof well beyond the life of your warranty
Will keep your current warranty valid
Will provide an accuarate history of your roof to allow you to budget for future expenses.

The Danco Roofing Services’ Asset Management Program will catch the small problems before you will need major repairs thus increasing the life span of your roof system. Please contact us to set up a meeting where we can discuss the details of this program.
According to the National Roofing Contractors Association preventive maintenance extends the service life of your commercial roofing system by 30-100%. That means EMERGENCY REPAIR COSTS could be TRIPLE the cost of a preventative maintenance program over the life cycle of a commercial roofing system.
Unlike many other building component warranties; roofs are susceptible to severe weathering, expansion, contraction and human abuse. Most major roofing material manufacturers will not approve warranty issues if yearly preventative maintenance has not been diligently completed. This means in order to keep your current warranty valid, it is a requirement to have preventative maintenance done each year.
Danco Roofing’s Asset Management Program allows property owners to extend their roof system for additional years of performance, thus preventing a premature, very costly, full roof replacement. It also allows owners to take advantage of these additional years while budgeting for the eventual full roof replacement. Our professional team will perform bi-annual comprehensive inspections. We will evaluate the entire roof, photograph potential problem areas, and generate a report for your records. The report identifies any areas of trouble and provides a recommended maintenance solution. Additionally, the report and photographs you receive are also uploaded into our Roof System Database where they can be utilized for comparative analysis for years to come; by you via the internet.
Our capabilities and experience enable us to inspect all roof system types. With proper maintenance and yearly inspections you will be saving a significant amount of capital over the life span of your building.
We look forward to helping extend the life of one of your most important property assets.
