Roof Inspections

Have roof inspections done biannually. The best times to have roof inspections done is one time in the spring and once in the fall. During commercial roof inspections, the gutters and drains are inspected to make sure that there is no accumulation of debris or clogs that are preventing them from draining properly. The inspectors also check to make sure that there are no spaces or damage in the flashings or other parts of the roof. When you have roof inspections done, you can catch small problems before they become more severe and more expensive.

Maintain Your Roof

Your roof is exposed to harsh weather conditions which will eventually take their toll. To extend the life of your roof, take preemptive actions to protect your roof from wear and tear. One way to do this is by having coatings applied to the surface of the roof. These coatings will help your roof last longer. Any time you discover cracks or tears in the membrane make sure to have them sealed as soon as possible so that water will not seep in.

Resolve Issues Swiftly

Do not let a small problem turn into a big one. The unfortunate truth is that ignoring issues with your commercial roof will not make them go away, but it will probably make them much worse.

Hire a Reputable Roofing Company

When looking to hire a roofer for your commercial roof, it is important to get recommendations from people that you know. Ask questions about the quality of workmanship, professionalism, and cleanliness. Make sure any roofing contractor you hire is licensed and insured. Anyone can call themselves a roofing contractor and do irreparable damage to your commercial roof.  You need to know that any roofer you are hiring is qualified for the job. A roof is a significant investment, and not something to take chances with.

A trusted roofer should offer a warranty on the roof. Throughout the installation or repair process, make sure you understand what is happening at every step and feel free to speak up if something is not clear.
