Just as home maintenance is essential to the integrity of your home, maintaining your commercial space is crucial to the success of your business. A key part of this maintenance is performing routine roof inspections. When you do this you can identify any possible damage that will only worsen over time, costing you more money, time, and energy. Unless you know exactly what to look for and are completely comfortable on top of a roof, we suggest that you hire a licensed and professional roofer to complete your inspection.

Read on to learn about the importance of commercial roof maintenance.

Identify Underlying Issues

If you have not inspected your roof lately, don’t wait any longer. The quicker you catch roof issues, the smaller the problems are and, therefore, the cheaper they are to fix. For example, if you spot a few missing shingles before they become full-blown leaks that seep into the interior of your business, you can save yourself time, money, and a huge headache. Like a lot of roofing problems, undetected leaks can turn into widespread structural damage if not addressed promptly.  

Extends The Life Of Your Roof

As you likely know, commercial roofs are not cheap. It is, therefore, important to do all you can to get the most out of the roof you have. The life of your roof is determined by several factors, including age, weather, and—perhaps most importantly—maintenance. Performing regular inspections and roof maintenance is, in essence, a preventative measure that slows down the deterioration of the roof system, thereby allowing you to get the most out of your investment.

Controls Indoor Conditions

When you inspect your roof routinely and maintain it, you keep the interior of your business dry and at a comfortable temperature. This can be especially important during extreme weather. A well-maintained and insulated roof can keep your interior space cool in the hot months and warm in the cool months, and if your business has several employees, remember that comfortable employees are productive employees. This means that you will not only be saving money by immediately repairing damage, but you also can make more money by improving the productivity of your workers.

Improves Your Workplace

Roof damage can severely jeopardize the safety of your company, employees, and customers. For example, leaks that are not repaired can cause mold and mildew to form—which is a direct health hazard for those in the building—and they can also cause wet floors that create a potential slipping hazard for anyone in the building. In addition to all of this, unrepaired damage can be an eyesore and can affect the appearance of your business, which in turn can hurt your reputation and profits.

Experts suggest getting your roof inspected at least once or twice a year. If you have yet to do this or to schedule your routine maintenance plan, call Tim Leeper Roofing—the expert roofing company.
