I am writing bullet points of what is included in a website maintenance service. The way I have phrased the sentence is "Rollover up to 12 Unused Hours". I am not sure if that is correct. How may I use the words "rollover hours" correctly in order to express that if you don't use the maintenance hours we can rollover your hours for next month? Thank you in advance for your help.

  • "Rollover hours" is not a thing. Try "unused hours". – Hot Licks Mar 22 '18 at 17:48

    If you want the verb, it's roll over: you may roll over up to 12 unused hours. – Xanne Mar 22 '18 at 20:55
  • @HotLicks thank you for your comment and Xanne thank you for complementing his comment. Now I understand how to use it correctly. – user230350 Mar 23 '18 at 19:06
  • I agree with Xanne: Roll over up to 12 unused hours. As a bullet point. – Lambie Apr 21 '18 at 23:31

I think your original example is pretty clear, but here are some alternatives:

  • "Up to 12 unused maintenance hours may be rolled over each month"
  • "Up to 12 unused maintenance hours may be carried over into the next month"
  • "Unused hours may be rolled over, to a limit of 12"
