NRCA Quote

FACTS from the National
Roofing Contractor’s Association


Proof that roof maintenance pays big dividends 

Or, how not to lose $0.15 per square foot per year on your roof systems
Case History: the Polygram Facility
In July of 1996, the Polygram facility was approaching 20 years of age. Excluding air handling equipment, there had never been more than a couple of minor roof leaks at any given time. The vast majority of time, the facility was leak-free during rain storms due to an aggressive roof maintenance program.
How much benefit was realized from the aggressive plan for this building?
The answer is a great value…

Polygram Facility
Roof Size: 220,000 Sq. Ft.
Cost of aggressive roof maintenance program is about $0.03 per sq. ft per year
Roof and related costs without a maintenance program is roughly $0.15 per sq. ft. per year
Average annual cost to a facility owner of not having a roof maintenance program: Approx. $54,700 per year
