Treating Roofs as an Asset
(An SMT Technician activates FutureCast, our Passive Monitoring System)
Planning out every step of the construction process is common practice, but planning for the future of a building's roof after construction is completed is done far less often. Every building owner should have a complete building enclosure asset management plan. Such a plan would include the roof, similar to the way mechanical systems internal to the building have scheduled pump and filter maintenance. The roof is a building's most important line of defense against the elements, as such, any risk of defect must be taken into account. These risks can range from general wear and tear from the effects of weather to installation defects with the waterproof membrane.
