The Importance of Roof Maintenance

Maintaining your commercial roof is essential to protecting the structural integrity of your building. Of all your building’s components, your roof is usually hit the hardest during the winter.

 

These are just a few ways a damaged roof can harm your company:

 

●        Unsafe rooftop walkways

●        Money loss on energy costs

●        Property damage from leaky ceilings

●        Risk of cumulative roof damage or collapse

 

To prevent these issues from interfering with your business, you should prioritize a seasonal roof inspection each spring. Look for the following common spring roof concerns:

1.    Animal Damage

During the spring months, animals start looking for places to nest. Animals can burrow, gnaw, and chew on your roof, damaging the materials and causing leaks. Watch out for signs of animal infestation including nests, animal droppings, and paw prints. Don’t try to handle wild animal issues yourself as this can be unsafe. Additionally, there are many laws protecting local wildlife. It’s best to call a professional wildlife removal team to assist with these issues.

2.    Debris

Any debris on your roof should be cleared right away as it can interfere with your roof’s performance or even damage roofing materials.

3.    Pooling Water

Any signs of pooling water on your roof may indicate a problem with the underlying roof structure and drainage system. A professional commercial roofing contractor can evaluate the condition of your roof as well as using infra-red roof inspection to find underlying problems that aren’t visible to the eye.
