Winter weather can put a commercial roof to the test between all of the ice, heavy snow, and dramatic temperature changes. When flat roofs make it through the cold season without incident, it can be easy to assume everything is in good working order and overlook seasonal maintenance. However, some of the most significant roof problems begin as small issues that can be easily repaired, avoiding serious trouble and expense down the road.


At A-Plus Roofing in Minneapolis, we specialize in commercial roof repair, replacement, and maintenance. In our line of work, we often see costly roof damage that could have been prevented with regular roof maintenance. Here’s why you should take advantage of the warm weather to conduct seasonal maintenance before next winter.

Getting Ahead of the Curve on Roof Maintenance

One of the most common mistakes commercial businesses make is to think there’s going to be plenty of time later on. Although summer is still just around the corner, you never know when summer rain can put a damper on your plans, and before you know it, the mercury will be dropping again in the fall. That’s why it’s important to get your rubber membrane roof checked while the weather’s nice.


Any minor damage that may have been overlooked can quickly escalate once your roof is pitted against fall wind, debris, and precipitation. And with winter right around the corner, the damage will only mount.

Steps to Maintaining a Commercial Roof

Besides seasonal commercial roof inspection and inspection after storms, you should also have your roof checked after significant maintenance that requires anyone to walk on your facility’s roof. Too often, this damage can go undetected until water begins to leak in, causing mildew and structural problems that go missed until they require a much more costly repair.


Whenever your HVAC unit is serviced or any work is done that requires using your roof, it’s a good idea to have a professional roof maintenance team check for damage. Addressing minor repairs immediately is much less costly and time-consuming than significant roof damage and may help you avoid the premature need for roof replacement.
