WHY YOU SHOULD PERFORM REGULAR ROOF INSPECTIONS
Your commercial roof, like all other buildings, needs to be maintained regularly. Regular inspections will tell you if your roof is in need of maintenance. Regular roof inspections are an important part of property management. Here’s what to do.
Many preventable roofing problems can cause a commercial roof to fail. Puddling water can build up in roof gutters and drains, which can lead to roofing material deterioration. In addition, debris can trap moisture against the roofing material which can also cause a premature failure. These issues can be identified by your commercial roofing contractor during your roof inspection so that they can be fixed before they become major problems.
Although some homeowners inspect their roofs themselves, it is better to have it inspected by professionals. Your commercial contractor will know what to look for, will be able to easily recognize the signs of a problem with your roofing material, and will be able to make recommendations for quick repairs that can prevent a full-blown roof leak. Inspecting roofs, many roofing contractors include minor repairs to the membrane and sealant replacement.
You should inspect your roof at least once a year. If you notice unusual activity, it is possible that there may be a leak. You should look for:
- You have stained the ceiling of your building.
- Unspeakable moisture on the ceiling and floor
- Unexplained musty odor in the building
- Sunken areas on your roof.
Your commercial roofing contractor might have advised you to inspect your roof as it approaches the end of its useful life. Ask your contractor to inspect your commercial roof and give you an estimate of its expected lifespan.
