To make matters worse it doesn’t help that we’re in a severe drought with little rain in sight. So why do I bring up the rain? Because let’s face it, that is the only time we think about our roofs!
But here’s why you should be thinking about your roof before the rain falls and how you can prevent damage to your commercial roof.
As I mentioned before, unfortunately, most people only think about their roofs when it rains. Not only that but most people think it is the rain actually causing the damage to your commercial roof. It’s not.
In fact, the Sun’s U.V rays are what’s causing the most damage to your roof (which makes cool roofs all more important).
But here’s what you can do to prevent damage to your commercial roof.
While we don’t get a lot of rain in Southern California, we do get plenty of sunshine. And although the Sun is great and we all love the Sun, it’s not doing us any favors in preventing damage to our roofs. Which makes roof inspections and maintenance the keys to preventing damage to
Inspections should be done by a roofing professional and at least twice a year.
Here’s a checklist of what they’ll inspect.
Inspections lead us to the next way to prevent roof damage, roof maintenance.
Second to utility costs, roof maintenance is usually the largest expense building managers and owners have to face. But by regularly checking your roof you can get an accurate assessment of the current condition of your roof and provide repairs and maintenance to preserve or extend the life of your existing roofing system.
The bottom line is to prevent catastrophic damage (and astronomical costs) is to inspect your roof regularly and make repairs as they are needed rather than holding it off. By doing this you keep your roof in top condition and extend the life of your existing roof.

I recently have had some repairs done to a commercial building we have here in California. I have tried other vendors in the past and usually get left with areas... read more that need future repairs. The few times I have had Central Roofing out for repairs and maintenace the roof always seems to be in better operating condtion then prior to the repairs made by them. I highly suggest Central Roofing for roof repairs at our various buildings.
Central Roofing put on a fabulous roof on our commercial building. It was white and beautiful. Supposedly very reflective from the sun UV rays. The workers there were very professional... read more and highly trained and skilled. Wonderful work.
I never write reviews but Central Roofing has impressed me so much by doing such an excellent job that I want to spread the word so that others are aware... read more of this talented roofing company and team. We have a large commercial roof over five tenant businesses. After years of dealing with numerous roofing companies who unsuccessfully attempted to repair ongoing roof leaks every time it rained, I finally contacted Central Roofing, Dave Wilkes their highly knowledgeable project manager, to fix our commercial roof. Central Roofing is the best roofing company I have ever dealt with. They really CARE, are highly responsive, trustworthy, conscientious, dependable, hard working and very customer and tenant focused. It continues to be a pleasure dealing with each and every member of their highly professional team. Central Roofing worked hand-in-hand with me to devise a commercial roofing solution within our budget to eliminate the recurring serious roof leaks. Central Roofing restored our commercial roof and, extended its life 15 years. Our roof restoration took approximately a week during which Central Roofing actively pre-coordinated all roofing repairs not only with me but also the building tenants to ensure no business interruption. Whenever I have a question or solicit their input, Central Roofing's entire team is always very responsive. Central Roofing has my business for life! -On behalf of Kim Holmes
