Care and Maintenance Plan
Fix My Roof’s policy to provide a 10-Year Care & Maintenance Plan with every roof that we custom design and install has – from our first day of operations – set us apart from other roofers throughout New Mexico.
In an industry plagued with “fly-by-night” contractors who disappear as soon as they’ve cashed their check, our 10-Year Care & Maintenance Plan lets homeowners, business owners, property managers, and homeowners associations rest worry-free in the knowledge that Fix My Roof Technicians will annually inspect the roof and perform corrective, preventive, and predictive maintenance. As our references will attest, we allow you to Never Worry About Your Roof Again!
After each Annual Roof Inspection, we will meet with you personally to discuss what repairs (if any) were necessary. We will also furnish you with a copy of our Annual Roof Inspection Report for your records.
ANNUAL ROOF CARE & MAINTENANCE
No matter what type of roof you have, it requires care and maintenance on an annual basis. This is the checklist that our Roof Technicians follow every year during the Annual Roof Inspection.
1. Examine the protective roof coating for any cracked, flaking, or blistered areas must be repaired and/or recoated.
2. Check the building envelope for indications of shifting. Structural movement can lead to cracks, which can result in separation of the roofing system.
3. Examine all rooftop equipment and penetrations. Make certain all equipment is properly attached or anchored so they do not move excessively. Excessive movement of rooftop equipment may create roof problems. Excessive movement may damage the equipment. Damaged equipment may leak materials onto the roof. (oils, gas, acids, solvents etc) which could damage the roofing system.
4. Remove debris such as leaves, branches, dirt, algae, stones, etc. that have accumulated on the roof.
5. Clean all gutters, scuppers, downspouts, drains and surrounding areas. Make certain the flow of water is not restricted and the roof has positive drainage.
6. Examine metal flashing for rusting and attachment. Flashings may be loosened by high winds, excessive traffic or inconsiderate trades.
7. Examine all adjoining roof areas or areas abutting the roof area. Damaged metal flashing, damaged masonry, loose caulking, bad mortar joints, and loose stone or tile coping caps may lead to damage of the roofing system.
9. Examine the edge of the roof. This area of the roof is the first line of defense for the roof system in high winds.
