A commercial flat roof is nothing more or less than a common flat roof with a pitch of 10% or less. However, construction and maintenance of a commercial flat roof may seem simple, especially if you have a qualified roof expert’s service at your disposal. But hardly, things are ever as straightforward as they may seem. If your commercial building has a flat roof, it would require regular maintenance checkups for damage prevention and value assurance to keep from compromising on safety and looking its best over time. As a general practice among many commercial building owners, commercial roof maintenance checkups are conducted twice a year, once in spring and the next in the fall.
Understandably, checking your roofs after exceptional weather changes like rainfall and snow should be the norm. However, depending on the design of your flat roof, whether it is an extension of the building, a living roof, or has multiple skylights, not following best practice protocols may reduce the lifespan of the commercial roof.
