As a property owner, you need to both protect your investment and make sure that your tenants are satisfied. A well functioning roof helps with both of these goals. Damage to the roof can lead to leaks and extensive water damage. If a tenant reports the problem quickly you may be able to avoid the worse of the damage, but not all tenants are equally proactive. Further, roof leaks can be frustrating to the tenants and impact whether or not they renew their lease.
