Although commercial roofing is designed to be tough and withstand all sorts of rough weather conditions, it’s not meant to last forever. And its lifespan directly depends on how well you maintain it. At Alternative Roofing, Inc., we know what kind of maintenance each roofing material requires and how to prolong the life of your commercial roofing system. And the best part is that you don’t have to worry about a thing: we can put you on a maintenance schedule and take care of the rest.
What’s Included in Roof Maintenance
Inspections. Regular inspections are a big part of roof maintenance. Without a thorough look-through it’s impossible to tell what kind of maintenance your roof needs. Think of it as pulling out a dip-stick and checking the oil in your car. If it’s low or dirty, that means it’s time for maintenance.
Protective coating. Some roofs may benefit from protective coating that seals the surface of the roof, providing a shield against the UV rays and covering all the tiny cracks and crevices. There are many different types of commercial roof coating products that can enhance your roof on many different levels.
Timely repairs. Detecting and fixing problems on the early stages is the key to a successful roof maintenance plan. Cracking sealant and damaged flashing are the first signs of trouble that can be easily addressed before they result in a leak.
What is a Good Maintenance Schedule?
Commercial roofing is different from residential when it comes to maintenance frequency. First of all, most commercial roofs are flat, which means they are more prone to standing water issues and debris and snow accumulation. Second of all, commercial roofs often experience a good deal of foot traffic. Whether it’s HVAC maintenance or plumbing vent repair, footsteps do affect the membrane. It’s recommended to have your commercial roof inspected once or twice a year, but the exact schedule will depend on the age of your roof and the type of the roofing system.
