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.
