Keeping a commercial roof in good condition ensures that the building occupants are comfortable regardless of the weather. Furthermore, proper maintenance ensures that the roof can withstand harsh weather conditions.

Commercial Roof Care

Here are some basic commercial roof care tips from professionals.

Keep Maintenance Records

Make sure all your roofing documents are in a secure place. These records are important because contain information such as your roof’s installation date, warranties, and the maintenance and repairs it has received through the years. Roof maintenance records typically include details like the drainage blueprint, insulation type, etc. Having all this information will allow your contractor to have a good overview of your roofing system.

Schedule Regular Roof Inspections

Regular roof inspections can help you detect the smallest issues before they turn into more extensive and costly problems later. This then enables your contractor to perform the necessary repair and prolong the life of your roof.

Check Your Roof Following a Storm

A commercial roof can also suffer damage from a storm, which may not be visible or easily recognizable to an untrained eye. Make sure to call up your contractor to inspect your roof after a storm so that any damage can be properly addressed.

Ensure Your Roof Is Accessible

Your roof must be accessible to the people maintaining it. To improve the safety and accessibility of your roof, permanent access components such as ladders, steps and crossovers must be added. Furthermore, make sure to control the people who can access your roof, and keep track of the activities that occur on your rooftop.
