What can I do to maintain my commercial felt roof?

Opting for a commercial felt roof

Without a doubt one of the most popular commercial roofing options out there, is a felt roof system. In fact, many commercial buildings opt for this type of roofing system due to the fact it’s relatively cheap to buy.

Also, when it comes to repairing this type of commercial roofing system, the costs are generally low – as it can be replaced without having to completely overhaul an entire roof. Instead, smaller areas that require a bit of maintenance can be looked at instead of having to opt for a complete roof replacement. 

Felt roofing systems are also highly-versatile, and can be installed by professional roofing contractors on roofs of almost any shape or size. Not only is this type of roofing system an extremely practical option, it comes with a range of benefits. It offers a high aesthetic quality that can enhance the overall appearance of almost any building. Plus, it allows you the flexibility of choosing the colour of the felt to match.

Is a felt roof easy to maintain? 

Thankfully, maintaining a commercial felt roof is actually relatively simple compared to other types of roofing system, as long as you take a few simple steps, including: 

  • Clearing out any debris that’s rested on the roof on a regular basis, including sleeves, branches and other bits of rubbish.
  • Frequently checking for any signs of wear and damage.
  • Giving the roof a once over after harsh weather conditions. Although this type of roofing system is actually sturdier than most, it can still be damaged in extreme weather.

Maintaining a commercial felt roof to good standards is all about conducting regular checks and inspections. Doing this will help you to avoid smaller issues becoming much bigger, more costly problems down the line, which could have a detrimental effect on your building and its efficiency.
