- Check for leaks, staining, missing mortar
- Does roof need cleaning? Traffic patterns? Walkway pads needed?
- Check attachment; paint any rusted metal, re-caulk as necessary, check for oil, ponding water, etc.
Your roof is an important asset. It protects your investments and the critical components that facilitate daily business operations including; your employees, inventory, computers and data. Something as simple as a blocked drain or a loose flashing on top of your building, if left unattended, can result in extensive damage that could potentially shut your business down for weeks.
Industry leading contractors and association leaders estimate that half of all roofing system failures are the result of neglect and poor maintenance plans. Annual roof inspections conducted by professionals with experience in diagnosing roof problems are highly recommended. A solid maintenance plan will allow you to address minor issues before they become major problems-saving you money in the long run.
Much like an automobile needs maintenance, so does your newly installed roofing system. An out-of-sight-out-of-mind approach is dangerous when it comes to your roof. The StarGard+ Warranty Extension Plan is an extensive 40+ point maintenance inspection conducted annually by your American WeatherStar approved Contractor.
Your contractor will assess the condition of your roofing materials and the soundness of the gutters, drains and downspouts. They will look for signs of water damage and structural movement, and perform routine maintenance on pitch pans, drainage systems, HVAC units, roof pipes, valleys, chimneys and vents. Two inspections are recommended annually for your protection. The StarGard+ plan requires a minimum of one inspection per year.
Participation in the StarGard Plan automatically extends your warranty coverage by 25%. The plan is offered at no additional cost from American WeatherStar on newly installed systems and systems covered by standard AWS warranties installed within two years of the first maintenance inspection. Talk to your contractor for details on setting up your plan.
All American WeatherStar warranties are transferable to new building owners. If you are selling or purchasing a building covered by StarGard+, please Contact American WeatherStar at 800.771.6643 to start the transfer process.
