Roofing is a significant investment, so you want it to last long. It is essential to the safety, comfort and protection of the occupants of your property. Your roof also plays a vital role in your building’s overall energy efficiency. With regular roof maintenance, you can delay the need for a replacement.
Here are helpful tips that will extend the life of your commercial roofing system.
Commercial roofing experts recommend having your system inspected at least once a year and after a major weather event. Make sure you have all necessary documents and records with you every time you get roof inspections and maintenance. Gather all vital information about the roof, and keep track of all the service done to it. When you know the age and condition of your roof, assessing and detecting damage would be easier. For instance, a new roof is likely leaking due to poor installation or problems with the gutter.
Leaves, branches, dirt and other debris will accumulate on your roof if you don’t clean it regularly. Eventually, the debris will end up in the gutters and clog them. Keep in mind that clogged gutters will cause water to overflow to your building’s exterior and back up to the roof. It can lead to problems, such as roof leaks, rusting and even foundation issues. Moreover, cleaning your roof also helps in preventing mold and moss growth.
Address Problems ASAP
One of the best ways to extend a roof’s life is to address issues as soon as they are detected. Delaying repairs will only make roofing problems worse and costlier to fix. It will also cause damage to affect other parts of your building. For example, unaddressed roof leaks can cause humidity issues inside your building as well as mold and mildew growth.
