The importance of commercial roof maintenance

Roof maintenance is something that can be easily put on the back burner. You’ve got a working roof, you’ve never had any problems with it, maybe it’s not even that old? So you don’t give it a second thought.

However, roofing maintenance is one of the most important aspects of commercial roofing and we’ve seen time and time again how neglecting regular commercial roofing maintenance can cost businesses time and money in the long-run.

Why invest in roof maintenance?

Roof maintenance is a vital part of prolonging the life expectancy of your roof coverings. And regular roof maintenance minimises the risk of water ingress into the building.

Many buildings have little if any roof maintenance which leads to health and safety claims and costly repairs due to the damage caused. It’s proven that by having roof maintenance carried out, you can save money by getting ahead of any issues or defects that can arise.

We’ve seen many roofs that have had to be extensively repaired or even fully replaced due to a lack of proper maintenance, something that could have easily been avoided if the problems had been identified sooner.

Maintaining your commercial roof allows you to get more out of your building, and preventative maintenance includes regularly scheduled inspections, periodic repairs of roofing parts and the addition of reflective coatings.

Prevention really is better than cure!

Common roof maintenance checks

Every building and company has its own set of needs and requirements, but generally, roof maintenance will include the following checks:

  • Inspection of drains to ensure no blockages.
  • Check of penetrations and membranes for any gaps or tears.
  • Inspection of rooftop vents and equipment to make sure they are fully sealed.
  • General check for signs of damage, wear and tear to the roof.
