Our office roof was done 3 years back in Toronto. We haven't had any issue with the roof but since it's been three years, now we are thinking if we should do a round of commercial roof maintenance. What are your suggestions, is it necessary to do a maintenance just coz it's been three years, or should we wait till some signs of weariness crops up?

Depends if is flat roof, shingle, metal and etc. But three years for any kind of roof is considered new. After 5 years you can call the company who did the job to get it inspected. They shouldn't charge you nothing for inspection. Anyhow, whoever you call for inspection shouldn't be more then 150$.

Three years is too soon to be concerned unless there are leaks. If leaking, call the contracter right away as it qould be an installation issue. Other than that, don't be concerned. It does depend on the type of roof and amount of severe weather but on average most roofs are under some warrantee for ten years of more. Asphalt shingles are 25 years plus. Just enjoy your office.

It really depends on the type of roof it is. There is nothing wrong with doing an inspection after three years as there could be problem areas from improper installation. What type of roof is it?
