Budgeting for Commercial Roof Maintenance

The 8% Rule

When your commercial roof nears the end of its life cycle, preventative maintenance is more important than ever. You should plan on spending about 8% of the cost of a new roof on maintenance each year until a replacement is inevitable.

Using the 8% rule not only helps you define your roofing maintenance budget, but has proven to be a cost effective way for building owners to prolong the life of their roof. When it comes time for taxes, roof maintenance expenses can be written off in the year they occur. A roof replacement is considered a capital expense, which must be depreciated over time.

The More You Know

In order to budget 8% of the roof replacement cost, it’s important to have an up to date understanding of how much a new roof will cost. During our comprehensive 21-point inspection, we can gather the information needed to provide you with this figure. We do our best to make recommendations within your budget and prioritize only what your commercial roof needs.

Plan Ahead

Commercial roof damage can come at unexpected times. Preparing for the unexpected can help you make sure these don’t set you back mentally or financially.

Due to the new norm, supply chain lead times can also be unpredictable. Having your commercial roof inspected bi-annually help us better prepare you for large repairs or causes for replacement to watch for in the months or years ahead.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
