The number one factor when a roof needs to be replaced is WET INSULATION!!!

Life-Cycle Costing

When attempting to evaluate whether a product or service substitution  is “equal or better than the one originally specified"- ask yourself: 

Are we going to lose the money saved on the initial cost by paying more over the life cycle of our investment?

Primary factors to consider when evaluating life-cycle cost of roofing:

- Design cycle (warranted life cycle) of the materials
- Maintenance costs, including:
- Annual cost per square foot
- Anticipated major repairs, such as recoating
- Non-destructive periodic evaluations for moisture penetration
- Anticipated minor repairs, such as damage from foot traffic
- Installation cost
- Ancillary cost related to those building elements impacted by the roof system, such as surrounding masonry
- Inspections during installation to ensure the quality of materials and labor
- Energy-consumption costs
- Disposal costs at end of life cycle
- Anticipated new environmental regulations that might affect disposal costs
- The value of material salvage or reuse
- The effects of tax law on the roof replacement
- Annual inspections

The cost of neglect is high:  When buying a roofing solution, the only constant is your initial cost. 

Over the life cycle of your roof, it is the cost of maintenance- or lack of maintenance- that will drive your cost.
