1.     Lack of Maintenance: Just like a car or practically anything else, maintenance not only keeps your roof working the way it was intended, it also extends its life. You wouldn't ignore your car's need for an oil change, why would you completely ignore your roof system after installation? Regular maintenance will save you a ton of headaches and likely a ton of money.  

2.     Leaks: Probably the number one reason roofers are dispatched is there's a leak somewhere. Many times lack of maintenance leads to this, other times its weather, foot traffic, or construction damage. Leaks happen, but the key is contacting your roofing professional as soon as the problem is detected to avoid as much damage as possible. The longer you have a leak, the more damage is being done, which costs you more money.  

3.     Blow-offs: Mother Nature can be a real mother sometimes. Even the strongest roof systems are tested and compromised by her relentless wrath. The good news: we can fix it after the storm.  

4.     Improper Install or Repair Work: Usually the case after the cheapest bid finishes an installation, or the IT guy attempts to repair a leak with sealant-in-a-can. Not only does improper installation or repair work make more work later, it can also cause more damage and eventually cost you more money. We've seen entire roof systems need completely redone. Don't be that guy. The cheapest is not always the best when it comes to your roof.  

5.     Punctures: Punctures are usually caused by debris from a storm or items left behind by an employee/HVAC guy. The smallest puncture can be a real problem, so keeping foot traffic to a minimum and only in designated areas is helpful for puncture prevention.
