It is important to conduct regular commercial roof maintenance on your building and watch for any signs of deterioration that may need attention.
Commercial Roof Maintenance – Every day, your roof is hard at work protecting your building from the elements. It is the first line of defense from the sun, wind, hail, snow, rain and anything else that might damage or deteriorate the building. This is why it is of utmost importance for your roof to be constructed of high-quality materials to give your building the protection it needs. But even after quality installation, it is important to conduct regular commercial roof maintenance on your building and watch for any signs of deterioration that may need attention. The quicker any problems are discovered and dealt with, the more likely it is that you will prevent further damage and reduce the cost of repairs.
Part of your commercial roof maintenance plan should be to inspect the roof on a regular basis. How often depends on the weather in your area, recent big weather events, the amount of traffic on the roof, and the age of the roof. If you have a new roof, you’ll likely be fine inspecting it twice a year, but it’s always a good idea to take a look at your roof after any big storms or if you suspect any damage for any other reason.
When inspecting your company’s roof, there are some basic commercial roof maintenance tasks you should perform:
- Make sure all loose debris is swept up and removed. Accumulating leaves or other debris will hold moisture that can speed up deterioration of the roof. It is also a fire hazard to let debris pile up on your roof.
- Clear all drain gutters and downspouts, so water will be able to drain properly from the roof.
- Check vents to make sure they are well sealed and won’t allow water to get inside.
- Keep trees near the building trimmed to prevent a build-up of leaves and debris on the roof.
