Your commercial property deserves a roof that’s both tough and long-lasting. The only way to ensure this is to make sure its maintenance requirements are met. Given the distinctive design of commercial roofs, doing this will take extra effort. Here Arrowhead Roofing, a leading roofer in the area, shares a few commercial roof care best practices to consider.
Keep the roof clean. Leaves and other loose debris can pile up on the surface of your commercial roof. They should be cleared away as soon as possible, before they can clog drainage areas and lead to standing water. Commercial roofing systems are generally low-slope, so they can’t shed water as effectively as their steep-pitched counterparts. By keeping the roof clear of any debris, there’s less chance of congestion and standing water, which in turn helps eliminate the potential for roof leaks.
Schedule regular roof inspections. Most roofing experts recommend having your system checked at least twice a year. A commercial roof inspection is especially crucial following a major weather event since it allows you to catch any developing roof problems and have them dealt with promptly. Arrowhead Roofing specializes in this service. Our team of certified professionals has the training, skills and experience to perform a precise and comprehensive inspection of your commercial roof. With our top-tier solutions, we’ll restore your system to its pre-storm condition and extend its service life.
Limit access to your commercial roof. Unless you’re having mechanical installations done on your roof or repairs or maintenance work done on the roof system itself, it’s generally a good idea to limit who can access the rooftop. Heavy, frequent foot traffic, after all, can cause damage to the roof membranes, making them more susceptible to leaks. For this reason, make sure that you have a written policy about who can work on the roof. It should state ways to regulate and monitor roof access, as well as how to record the people who have access to it. As additional protection, make sure the time, duration and purpose of rooftop visits are also recorded.
