Tips for Commercial Roof Maintenance

Commercial Roof Maintenance
The duties that come with owning a business are plentiful enough when it comes to sales, clients and employees, so you shouldn't have to worry about the actual structure of the building. If you purchase a building it is up to you to ensure the grounds stay in good shape. One of the biggest investments you will likely make for a commercial building is the roof. A good roof will help ensure the rest of your store, warehouse or industrial building continues to be structurally sound and looking great! But in order to keep the roof performing its best be sure to follow these simple commercial roof maintenance tips!

Bi-Annual Visual Roof Inspection

Twice a year, usually in spring and fall, conduct a full visual roof inspection of the commercial roof. Look for cracked or broken roofing material, including crumbling, broken or missing shingles. Be sure to check for damage around areas of roof penetration such as vents, skylights and chimneys. Look around the joints and eaves to make sure there is no signs of major wear and tear.

Clean Gutters

Make sure your gutters and downspouts are clear year round to ensure water can be properly routed. If gutters are blocked water can back up and seep into the lower roofing causing major damage.

Clear Brush

Don't let trees or other brush grow over your roof. It will wreck havoc on your roof, especially if they drop leaves, pine cones or pine needles.

Look for Roof Leaks

Walk through the inside of your building and check the ceiling for signs of roof leaks. The most common signs are black or wet spots on the ceiling or you may notice mold. If you find these you will want to try to locate the leak and contact a professional roofer to have it fixed.

Don't Walk on the Roof

Walking on roofing can cause damage to it and it can also be quite dangerous, so never get on your roof unless it is absolutely necessary!

Have Damage Professionally Repaired

If you do notice damage use a licensed roofer to have it fixed. The roof is an important part of the building's structural integrity so it is necessary to have it properly serviced.
