Tips For Commercial Roof Maintenance

Needed Commercial Roof Maintenance

As a commercial property owner or manager, no matter the kind of commercial property it is that you own or manage, you need to ensure you’re getting the best performance possible from your existing roof system. Your roof protects the overall quality and integrity of your entire business space, and keeps you, your customers, and employees safe with comfort and security while they occupy your commercial property. The best way to ensure your commercial roof’s ability to perform well and have a minimum amount of serious problems over the course of its lifespan is by spending time, money and effort wit preventive maintenance measures.

It can also save you time and more problems by ensuring you won’t waste extra time and resources handling those issues. When implementing preventative maintenance procedures for your commercial roofing system, there are several different factors to utilize. To summarize them and  their importance in maintaining your roof, our team of professionals have taken the time to put these tips together that we hope you will find helpful.

Get Your Roof Inspected Regularly

Commercial roofing inspections are critically important in preventative commercial roofing maintenance. Ideally, you should have your roof inspected a couple times each year by an experienced, professional commercial roofing contractor, at least once in springtime and once in the fall before cold weather sets in. During the inspection, your roofing contractor will be looking for several different indicators that could lead to bigger issues down the road, issues like clogged drains and downspouts, tears, gaps or deterioration in flashing, poorly sealed rooftop vents, and other different kinds of damage that could get worse as time goes by or could cause more complications. After performing your inspection, your contractor can give a detailed report of their findings, which items need to be addressed immediately, and their best recommendations for doing so.

Commercial Roof Inspections You Can Count On

Complete Basic Repairs When Needed

Once you have your inspection in hand, you can start with the roof repairs that are needed. Consult with your commercial roofing contractor to figure out which items need to be taken care of immediately, and which ones are either not a big priority, or do not pose a threat to the safety or integrity of your roof. Then, hire your roofing contractor to start in addressing the most important problems. Whether they are applying small fixes to blistered or minor cracking spots on your roof, or helping you remedy bigger, more serious breaks or cracking that has occurred and might get worse the longer they remain in place, having a professional, experienced opinion is always going to be a better choice for you than getting up there and trying to assess it yourself, or having one of your employees do it.

Invest in Reflective Coatings

Once you’ve taken the steps to get your needed repairs completed, the next step in preventative maintenance is investing in a new reflective coating for your roof. Reflective coatings are an excellent way to help your roof fight the elements and weather by enhancing its ability to fight off the harmful UV rays, as well as severe environmental conditions. Providing your roof with a new layer of protection, against UV rays in particular, can be extremely helpful, as over your roof’s lifespan, these rays will work to dry out your roof’s surface, which leads to cracking and splitting, which makes it a lot easier for water to find its way inside your commercial property.
