As the leading residential and commercial roofing contractor in our local area, Quality Assurance Roofing highly recommends implementing a regular roof maintenance program for your commercial property. Regular roof maintenance will ensure that your commercial roof lasts as long as possible and it will improve your roof’s performance. Here are the things you need to know about commercial roof maintenance routines:
Inspections And Repairs – These are the two major components in all roofing maintenance programs. However, the elements involved in these components differ based on the type of commercial roof. Single-ply roofs have different requirements compared with built-up roofs. In addition, the level of traffic on your roof also affects its inspection and maintenance requirements.
Types Of Roof Inspections – The initial inspection finds out if the roof is properly installed and free of defects. It also checks if the equipment installed on the roof operates in such a way that they will not damage the roof. Seasonal inspections are performed by a commercial and residential roofing expert like us at least twice a year, during fall and spring. Damage inspections are performed immediately following harsh weather and whenever you make a change to the equipment installed on the roof.
Common Sources Of Damage – Foot traffic is one of the most common causes of damage for a commercial roof. Since completely eliminating foot traffic is not feasible or desirable, you need to implement proper guidelines for working on your roof, limiting roof access, and installing padding that follows the walkway patterns. Ponding water is another cause of damage. We can correct this problem by clearing the roof drains and adjusting the roof’s elevation.
