Successful Roof Guidelines
There are a number of things that can harm your roof or impact its life expectancy. The best way to prevent this is to take a proactive approach to repairs and maintenance. Regular roof inspection services will locate small issues before they turn into large problems. A few ways to stay ahead of commercial roofing problems include:
Make sure your gutters are clean: Keeping your roof free of standing water and debris is a great way to protect your roofing system. Clogged drains or improper drainage systems can significantly weaken your roofing system.
Don’t put off minor repairs: Just because a repair is minor does not mean that it can be put off. Take the time to ensure minor leaks or tears are properly addressed. They won’t go away on their own and will only grow and cause more damage down the road.
Professional roof inspection: It has been shown that a roof greatly benefits from routine roof inspections. It is recommended to perform them after extreme weather conditions, as well as once in the spring and again in the fall. Remember, some roofing troubles are better at hiding so it’s important that your roof inspection is provided by a licensed professional to make sure nothing is overlooked.
Water-tight seals are a must: Skylights, cooling systems, or roof vents should always be checked because of their uncanny ability to develop leaks. Ensuring that seals are not showing signs of damage makes sure that your roofing system is on the right track.
Limit foot traffic: Limiting the amount of foot traffic on your commercial or industrial roof will greatly assist in its success. If you notice something – How did that football get up there? – it’s alright to remove it. If you notice a tree limb, go ahead and give us a call to get rid of it without damaging your roofing membrane. We’ll also use that as a chance to inspect for any damages the tree could have caused.
Your building is important to us and your employees, inventory, and equipment. Let’s work together! We’ll make sure your roof is taken care of while you make sure your business is taken care of.
