There are lots of reasons not to neglect your commercial or industrial roof until water leaks into your building. Some of the most important benefits include:
- Clearing debris – Drainage on a low-sloped roof is critical. Clogged drains or gutters can cause water to back up and pour in or even overload the structure.
- Discovering, documenting and repairing damage – HVAC and other workers can cause damage to your roof. Even a moderate wind can cause a vent cap or other debris to tumble across a roof and perforate the membrane, and bullets falling from shots fired into the air (especially New Years and July 4th) can puncture your roof. Timely discovery and repair of leaks like these can prevent a lot of damage and extend your roof’s lifespan.
- Preventative Maintenance (PM) – You can often extend the life of your roof by repairing or coating it before it completely wears out. Regular inspections can help you plan this kind of pro-active approach to getting the most out of your roof.
Even if your roof has a manufacturer’s warranty, there are many things that can go wrong that won’t be covered by the warranty, and those are the owner’s responsibility to correct. Having a knowledgeable inspector examine your roof regularly can return real savings. Call or email if we can help you set up a plan for your building.
