Commercial Roof Maintenance Can Save You Money in the Long Termby R&R Industries R&R Industries was established in 1948 as the R&R
It is unfortunate that a majority of times, roofs on commercial buildings are often ignored until there is a large problem, such as a leak, missing shingles, or water clinging to the ceiling of the commercial building. As soon as a problem they thought was minor turns out to be huge, property owners or managers are unnerved to see the expensive repair bills!
Like with most things, catching any problems while they are still small is always a good idea, which is why you should not overlook preventative commercial roof maintenance.
Roofs are not the easiest to get access to for proper evaluation, and that makes having regular commercial roof maintenance important. Businesses can expect to shell out a small fortune trying to fix a problem if they allow it to persist. For example, if something as simple as a leaky roof is not fixed right away, the stagnant water will continue to build, causing the formation of mold. Not only does mold have the possibility of causing harm to the structure of the commercial building, but it can also cause employees to get sick.
Having regular preventative commercial roof maintenance will save money because if there need to be commercial roof repairs, they are often minuscule and do not cost a lot. With regular maintenance, the roof is also likely to last longer, eliminating expensive replacements. And because no workers will get sick due to mold growth, businesses will not have to pay any compensation to workers either.
Commercial businesses should have their roofs inspected by a roof maintenance company to make sure that there are no leaky pipes and vents, exposed nails, loose shingles, debris, and other minor weak spots. Ideally, an inspection should be performed at least two times during the year. One of the scheduled inspections should be performed after the winter months as heavy snowfalls can compromise the structural integrity of the roof, possibly leading to the collapse of the roof. Also, have an inspection done in the fall before the winter begins. If any problem areas are found during the inspection, they can be patched before the snowfall begins to wreak havoc on the roof and also ensure that the roof’s drainage system is working as it should. All of these preventive measures will prolong the life of the roof and eliminate costly repairs down the line.
When it comes to hiring a company to do preventative commercial roof maintenance once or twice a year, it is important for businesses to locate a good, professional (and local) commercial roofing company. A professional commercial roofing contractor will be able to give you a detailed description of the weak points, what they did to fix them, and a description of the current roofing system, including its estimated life cycle and a list of any recommended replacements or repairs that will make the roof stronger and increase its longevity. Having regular commercial roof maintenance ensures the roof stays strong, and the inside of the building remains dry and safe.
