Fluid Roof Restoration and Commercial Roofing Maintenance
WPS Commercial is a fluid roof restoration and commercial roofing maintenance company specializing in maximizing the life of your roof through a programmed and scheduled approach.
WPS Commercial Roof Maintenance Program was established because we believe there are too few resources for roof owners to establish a mutually beneficial relationship with a roofing maintenance contractor. A vast majority of the industry is dedicated to replacing roofs as opposed to maximizing the life of a roof through programmed maintenance. Roofs are by far the most neglected area of a building. If an owner does venture onto the roof, it is usually to check for a leak. Once they confirm that the roof is still there, they pick up the yellow pages and call the company with the largest display ad. At WPS Commercial, we believe there is a better way to approach the roofing equation. Our approach is defined by inspection, documentation, verification, budgeting, and cost analysis. We maintain the history of the roof asset in a format that any owner, facilities engineer, or board member can pick up and relate to now or in the future. This approach forms the basis upon which good future roofing decisions can be made. Any program espousing scheduled maintenance is sometimes difficult to grasp. Until you experience the long-term benefits of the program, the value is not realized. Whether you enter into a formalized maintenance program or simply use our service for a single repair, our commitment is to protect and extend the value of your roof asset. We hope to become a resource for you.
For nearly a 1/3rd of the cost of an expensive roof replacement, WPS Commercial’s coatings can extend the life of your roof.
Why Schedule Roof Maintenance?
The questions always come up… “Why should I spend money on something that isn’t leaking?” or “Can you prove there is a return on the money spent?” or “Why do I need maintenance if I have a warranty?” There is an answer for all these questions. The life of your roof is directly related to how often it is inspected and how quickly small problems are identified and repaired. The federal government, which is the largest building owner in the United States, found that their average roof lasted less than five years before leakage occurred and less than eight years before replacement. A national roofing association has shown that as many as 35% of all roofs do not reach their expectancy.
The following are causes identified with premature roof failure:
- 47% is due to poor workmanship
- 16% is due to poor design
- 9% each is due to faulty materials and weathering
- 8% each is due to trapped moisture or mechanical damage
- 3% is due to roof traffic
Roof Maintenance Education
Our goal at WPS Commercial is to educate as many owners and building managers as possible to the fact that roof maintenance makes economic sense. A roof inspected semi-annually can last as much as 50% longer than one that is visited only when there is a leak. Maintenance with documentation provides you with a written history of repairs, a projected life expectancy, and clear budget numbers for future expenditures. It gives you both knowledge and control, while it protects your asset and provides value to your property.
