Today we will discuss the umber one cause of commercial roof damage, so that you can avoid it and keep your roof in tip top shape for years to come!
Regular Maintenance Is King
Hands down, the number one cause of commercial roof damage is a lack of maintenance. The amount of maintenance your roof needs will vary according to the material it is made with, of course, as well as its age. However, as a general rule of thumb, all roofs should be inspected a least once annually, which will tell you if you need maintenance or not. For certain roof types such as single ply membranes or modified bitumen, yearly maintenance is a safe bet, but for metal roofing, you will require much less.
Roof maintenance allows your roofer to address minor damages and points of concern before they spiral out of control. small damages are quick and inexpensive to repair, but left unattended, they can quickly become large problems, and even cause early roof failure. Do your commercial roof a favor today, and schedule a commercial roofing inspection.
