To guarantee its proper working condition, any roof should be regularly maintained. Preventive maintenance is the best guarantee of durability of a roof.

Before approaching maintenance itself, it is important to refer two relevant aspects that are fundamental in the maintenance process:

  • Maintenance planning should begin while still at the project phase. The designer should foresee and plan suitable access and circulation conditions on the roof.
  • Once the planning of these conditions is complete, the builder should execute them accordingly.

Not complying with the above conditions is often the reason why basic maintenance activities are not conducted.
