- 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 & repairing damage – Even a moderate wind can cause a vent cap or other debris to tumble across a roof and perforate the membrane. 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.
- Bi-annual Inspections – Regular inspections can help you plan pro-active approach to getting the most out of the facility’s roof system. As mentioned in the last two points; cleaning debris, finding deficiencies as well as finding issues that will soon be a roof deficiency, before it is a leak. Many facility and operation managers prefer their facility to be safe and dry. A proactive approach will help achieve that goal.
Even if a facility’s roof has a manufacturer’s warranty, there are only certain things covered by the warranty and is the owner is responsible to correct items not on the warranty. Most manufacturers’ warranties recommend an inspection two times a year. NRCA recommend Spring and Fall for the inspections to take place. Having a knowledgeable inspector examine the roof regularly can return real savings. Call or email if we can help set up a plan for your building.
