Ive been looking for an unbiased study that shows what the maintenance cost are for a BUR way out in the 30+ year life span.
Specifically, i need to compare the anticipated maintenance costs of a BUR roof for the age range of (dont laugh) 30 -50 years.
I have to do an economic analysis to compare whether or not it is the economically feasible to “replace the roof” or “continue patching it for 20 more years”.
The roof in question is 25,000 sf BUR and is currently 31 years old. This is at a plant with 2 Million+ sf of flat roofing, all over 30 years old and most was originally constructed in the mid 1940’s.
It sounds like a no brainer, but i need good defendable data to substantiate the analysis results.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a document, study, website or publication that would give me some info like that.
Any leads are appreciated.
