Why your commercial property needs regular roof maintenanceNovember 17, 2015
Maintaining the roof at your commercial property is of vital importance for a number of reasons. Not only does a solid, well-maintained roof benefit your commercial building itself, but also those working inside it or visiting. Here, we explain a little more about what these reasons are, and what the regular maintenance work can and should entail.
Benefits of regular roof maintenance
The benefits of regular maintenance on your commercial roof are plentiful, and include:
- improved safety
- improved energy efficiency
- lower costs in the long run as no huge repairs likely to be required further down the line
Recognising the signs of a problem with your roof
There are some telltale signs when it comes to keeping an eye on your roof for problems. Some things that could be a cause for concern are instances of damp or water stains on the ceiling within your commercial premises, which could demonstrate the presence of a crack or hole in the roof which is allowing water to enter the property. Another sign which may come alongside the issue of damp is that of mould and odour; both of which could indicate this issue.
There are also visual clues on the roof itself that you should look out for to avoid problems with the roof. Bubbles could indicate trapped moisture in the roof cover, or even the release of gasses from insulation board that has become trapped below the cover.
Commercial roof maintenance procedures
Regular checks should be carried out to ensure you keep an eye on your roof throughout the year to look out for issues such as prolonged standing water or ponding which could lead to the roof deteriorating and leaks occurring. Detecting issues early on can save a lot of money and time in the long run.
Basic repairs can be made on the roof throughout the year without letting problems build up and worsen. As well as this, the regular inspection of vents and roofing equipment is advisable.
