Don’t Let Reactive Maintenance Cost You Big!
As a facility manager, you balance the task of overseeing the maintenance of your facility with trying to maintain an allocated budget. On average, the roof on your facility is only about 10% of the total building cost, and as such, is easily forgotten about once a repair or replacement has been completed. That is until it starts leaking.
Let's Make a Plan!
A leaky roof is usually expensive to repair and can often lead to lawsuits. Therefore, it is imperative for facility managers to fully understand the total cost of your roof and how you can limit unnecessary litigation from someone slipping or falling in your facility due to a roof leak.
Of all construction-related litigation, a building’s exterior usually accounts for around 80%, with roofs accounting for the largest part of these lawsuits. Out of all litigation regarding the building’s skin, a whopping 36% of these lawsuits all stem from the same issue, edge metal failure. Perimeter edge metal makes up only 1% of the building cost so that 1% is carrying 36% of the exposure to risk of litigation!
