What are the things you should look for in a roof system that can be easily managed? 

Certainly you should start with a good design. Proper details approved by the manufacturer, tapered insulation to ensure adequate drainage, a minimal of items that need to be "maintained" after the installation, and rust resistant sheet metal components that are assured to outlast the useful life of the roof.  

Second use materials supplied by a recognized national manufacturer. If you do not start with quality materials than managing the roof will be impossible.

Finally, select the right roofing contractor. Look for a contractor that is approved by a national manufacturer of quality materials, and make sure they follow all of the details specified to meet their longest warranties. Also have the contractor back once a year to do an annual inspection and any required maintenance.

These item will ensure you of many years of quality service and provide you a roof system that can be easily managed. 

For additional help managing your roof call on the experts, Service Works, Your Full Service Roofing Contractor.

Eight Factors Of A Manageable Roof
1. Good drainage. Preventing water from collecting on the roof is the first step to keeping it out of your building.
2. Safe but limited roof access. Access is a double-sided sword. You need good access to the roof so you can conduct inspections and take care of repairs, but if it's too easy to get onto the roof, people who don't belong there could cause excess roof strain. You need control over who is able to get onto the roof. If your roof has interior access, consider locking the door so that people can't step out on a whim to smoke cigarettes. For roofs with exterior access, use a removable ladder or make an installed ladder retractable or lockable.
Also make sure you don't have fences or other nearby obstacles that people can use for roof access. I especially see this happen at schools - kids would rather play on the rooftop than on the grounds surrounding it.
3. Proper equipment clearance. NRCA has guidelines on how high equipment stands should be to provide enough clearance to let tradespeople get under the equipment for maintenance and repairs. The larger the equipment, the higher the stand needs to be.
