Hurricane season last year was no joke. Here at PSI Roofing, we ended up having to do a significant amount of commercial roof repairs as a result — many of which were focused on fixing leaks. Unfortunately, meteorologists are predicting a similarly extreme hurricane season this year. Because of this, we highly recommend that you get a head start on roof maintenance and repairs by scheduling a commercial roof inspection to prepare for the heavy rain and winds of the upcoming hurricane season.

It is such an old and tired adage it has almost lost all meaning: those who fail to plan, plan to fail.

What the Free Thinker in 1719 said, “Time is money,” is still true 299 years later. For the South Florida property manager struggling to keep a building and budget intact, time spent on flat roof maintenance can seem a waste. Yet with the right roof maintenance plan, investment of time and money through regular upkeep can prevent flat roof leaks.
