Importance Of Commercial Roof Maintenance

Commercial Building Maintenance

As a commercial building owner, it is natural to want to get the most out of your property. The roof provides protection for the entire building as well as adequate interior comfort, being the first line of defense against temperature variations and weather phenomena.  It’s also important to maintain the walls of your property by having Connecticut masonry repair done as soon as needed.

In these circumstances, commercial building owners should take the necessary measures to maximize the roof`s performance, increase its lifespan and protect their investment. A proactive attitude should be based on partnering with a reliable roofer and scheduling periodic inspections and roof maintenance. Even the slightest tear may cause significant damage, but roofing specialists know how to identify problems and vulnerabilities before they turn into a disaster that may negatively impact your business in terms of money and downtime.

Some warning signs can be identified even by the building`s owner:

  • Water ponding, which refers to accumulation of standing water on the roof and has dangerous effects
  • Bubbles that form in the roof cover, due to heat and moisture, leaving it susceptible to leaks and other types of damage
  • Improper sealing of the roof cover and flashing gaps are problems that may lead eventually to roof cover failure

Routine maintenance of a flat commercial roof must include inspecting drains and downspouts and clearing potential blockages, as well as checking the roof cover, especially around roof penetrations and flashings to make sure they are properly sealed.
