Can I perform my own commercial roof inspection?

If you own a business with a commercial roof, it is crucial to learn about commercial roof inspection and what to look for during one. Not only would this benefit the roofing contractor, but it will also help you and your company.

How can learning about my roof help me and my business?

By understanding what a roofing contractor is going to look for during a commercial roof inspection, you can help keep an eye on potential dangers that could be happening or might be missed. If you don’t know you have a problem until a roofing contractor comes to look at your roof, it could cost you more money in the long run and cause further damage to your roof. By knowing what to look for and checking it every once in a while, you can make sure nothing is damaging your roof or even know how to fix small problems without calling in a contractor. 

What do commercial roofing inspectors look for?

It first starts with taking a look at the roof in person, whether that’s looking at your commercial roof by walking on it or taking images of it and inspecting them after. This also includes looking at the roof’s inside to make sure that your commercial roof is working correctly. 

During your commercial roof inspection, the roofing contractor will look mainly for:

  • Ponding water
  • Cracks
  • Uplifted seams, nails, shingles, etc.
  • Blisters
  • Other possible signs of future damage

A good rule to follow is work from the outside of the roof inward because the roof’s perimeter will be the most likely to cause certain damages to your roof. Other things included with a commercial roof inspection involve taking core samples and a report of findings.
