How to Extend Your Commercial Roof’s Lifespan

by | Oct 13, 2021 | Roofing | 0 comments

Premature roofing failure shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s often costly to address, as it often involves replacing the whole roof that could have otherwise lasted well until the end of its expected lifespan. If you want to avoid unwanted repair costs later on, it’s important to have your roof inspected and maintained by professional storm damage restoration specialists such as Atrium roofing.

Schedule Your Roof Inspections Regularly

At bare minimum, you should inspect your roof for damage once or twice a year and repair as necessary. As such, quarterly inspections should be conducted along with general cleaning added during spring and fall. This is especially important during the fall season because of the fallen leaves that can clog troughs and drains and create ponding water. Having a quarterly inspection also gives you a better idea of what condition your roof is in and lets you spot any potential areas you need to address before the start of the next season.

Hire a Trustworthy Contractor for Roof Maintenance 

Whether it’s a recent roof replacement or over a decade old, with our services, we’ll provide regular upkeep programs to maintain your roof. We’ll assign our experienced contractors to survey your roof on an annual basis to scan and clear any damaging debris. We’ll also look for signs of deterioration so we’ll be able to address it while the issue is still relatively minor. We’ll also check the equipment that’s connected to your commercial roof system, such as external parts of your HVAC system, and see if they have any sign of corrosion or impairment.

Get to Know Your Roofing Materials 

Stocking up on spare repair materials shouldn’t happen when water is already coming through your roof. You’ll need to prepare in advance, and that includes making sure to know what material your roof is made of and what can be used to fix it. For instance, TPO and PVC membranes are especially tricky, since they look the same but aren’t compatible with each other.

You also need to know what types of repair products are safe to use on your roof, but you can consult with your trusted roofing contractor so you can be sure. That’s why it’s always important to be prepared in case temporary repairs are needed.
