Preventing unwanted damage is the main purpose of maintaining your commercial property’s roofing system. In doing so, you help extend its service life and boost its performance while protecting your bottom line.
As one of the leading commercial roofing contractors in the local area, we know what it takes to preserve the structural integrity of roofing systems. We discuss today certain maintenance rules you can apply regardless of the time of year.
Devise a Maintenance Plan
Everything about maintaining your roofing system should be contained within a plan. Make sure that it is written and executed properly so you can be certain all problems are identified and repaired before they become worse. The plan must also be communicated well with your team; otherwise, you won’t get the results you want.
The success of your roof maintenance hinges on how frequent your roof inspections and subsequent commercial roof repair work are. Inspections must be done at least twice a year, during the spring and the fall. Delays can worsen the condition of the entire roofing system, resulting in huge, costly repairs down the road.
Follow a Routine During Roof Inspections
Following the routine roof inspection helps make sure every component or area of the roofing system is covered. Begin with a thorough inspection of the gutters and drains, then on to the roof penetrations. Move on to the roof’s surface, then to the flashings, roof edges and terminations. Check for any defects in these areas. The order doesn’t matter as long as you follow the inspection routine consistently.
