A well-maintained roof is essential for any structure. On public property, you want to make sure that those who pass by or work in the facility are as safe as possible. Maintaining the roof will keep the rest of the building in good health such as the ceiling, walls, and foundation.
There are various problems that can be detrimental to your commercial roofs such as pooling, bubbling, loose flashing, and more.
It is always better to have these fixed right away, rather than having safety and financial burdens later. Here are some tips that will give you an idea that what you should look out for:
Design Flaws –
A lot of these older structures were built with improper roof slopes, insufficient ventilation, and drainage, etc which becomes a burden on new property owners.
Replacing a commercial roof can be costly, so make sure you hire a professional company that specializes in flat roofing. Professional Roofers will visit the property for free, give you our recommendations, and ALWAYS provide you with a warranty.
Gaps in Flashing, Skylights, and Vents –
Small gaps around flashing are an easy and inexpensive fix, but only if the repairs are done with urgency. Commercial buildings need to have flashing and other metals periodically checked for separation, erosion, and other damages. Once flashing is damaged, a roof leak is inevitable.
These are the best way to maintain the good condition of your flat roof. All roofing types need regular maintenance and a flat roof is no different. By doing so, it will save you time, money and expand the lifespan of your roof.
