Some of the warning signs your commercial roof might need maintenance can easily go undetected, especially if you aren’t familiar with where to look. We know it can be hard to own a commercial building and stay on top of maintenance, so we wanted to share some roof maintenance tips straight from the roofing experts here at Rackley Roofing.
General Roof Maintenance Tips
When it comes to your commercial roof, you want to keep track of who goes on your roof. Record the details each time someone goes up there, including:
- Who went on the roof?
- What was the purpose the individual had for being on the roof?
- Where was this person on the roof?
It is a good idea for you to be familiar with your roof, so you will be able to detect subtle changes in its appearance.
A good system for cataloging your findings is by taking pictures, noting placement, and rating what you find. A helpful system could be:
- Good – No action is needed.
- Fair – Monitor for now.
- Bad – Immediate action is required.
If action is needed, it is best to call a professional roofer for an inspection right away. Damage has a way of spreading, sometimes unseen. What may look like a minor leak could have significant repercussions if it isn’t properly repaired.
