Alternative to SquareSpace backup

We have a brochure web site hosted by SquareSpace with about 30 static pages.  Our I.T. Dept. does not have the resources or skill to host our own web site in-house.

Unlike other web hosts like BlueHost or GoDaddy, there is no user backup or restore feature available from SquareSpace.  The 'database snapshot' is hardly useable as a backup alternative and an ability to export WordPress is of no use to me.  

Squarespace provides CSS templates and a CMS user-interface so that non-technical business users can easily maintain content.  Our I.T. Dept. initially set up the template and business users change the pictures and words, as needed.

I have provided a place on our company network to save the original documents and images before they are uploaded to the web site.  What this does not provide is the CSS markup used to render web pages or any reference to site hierarchy.

I was wonder if anyone thinks that occassionally running a program that crawls the site and saves the rendered page off-line would be a fair alternative to a backup.  It would preserve the formatting and content references and site hierarchy.  This would help make it easier to reconstruct the web site if we were to move off of SquareSpace, it goes out of business, or we royally screw up the site ourselves.
