Every building needs a roof. As a commercial roof installation and maintenance expert, MJT Roofing strongly recommends investing in regular maintenance for your commercial roof. A well-maintained commercial roof has many benefits. It lasts longer, better protects against the weather, and saves you a substantial amount of money.
If you have had work done on your roof, you know that it can be costly to install or repair your commercial roof. If you invest in your commercial roof, why not keep your roof maintained long-term? Regular roof maintenance can help reduce the possibility of damage in extreme weather and means that you don’t have to join the waiting list for a new roof when the need finally arises.
Regular Roof Inspections
Having your roof regularly inspected by a New Jersey certified commercial roof inspector is the first step to keeping your roof system in good condition. A proper roof inspection requires many steps and the use of special equipment to look for signs of damage. There are many roof inspectors out there, but it is important to bring one into the facility that wants to work for you and help you, not just make a buck.
The following areas should be inspected every time someone is on your roof:
- Flashings, roof edges, terminations, expansion and control joints.
- Gutters, scuppers, and drains.
- Surface area or field of roof.
- Rooftop units and penetrations.
- Any other defects.
The order doesn’t matter as long as it stays consistent from one inspection to the next. Our roofers will perform an on-site inspection of your roof and note any potential problem areas, including drainage, roof traffic, weather damage, and moisture infiltration. How do you best protect your building and the business that goes on inside? Proper roof maintenance can offer significant savings in your budget because dealing with a small leak that will grow larger can lead to a total failure of your roofing system. Early detection of leaks is crucial for the long-term viability of your commercial roof.
Commercial Roof Repairs
Don’t wait to have any damages or leaks inspected and repaired. The longer you wait, the more likely the damages will get worse and the more expensive the repairs could be in the long run. Whether any roof damages were discovered by an inspector or you noticed them yourself, don’t hesitate to have MJT Roofing fix your roof and get it working like new.
Problem areas leftover time can turn into major issues. Small holes or openings in your roof can become a home for rodents and other small animals as they look for warmth or protection of your building. Openings also create a place for water to flow, resulting in leaks that can affect day-to-day business.
Maintenance Plan for Commercial Roofing Systems
If you want something to last, you need to take care of it. Whether that means washing it, putting it in a case when you are done with it or turning it off when you leave, you need to take care of it. Your building, more specifically your roof, is no different. You need to take care of it, which means developing a commercial roof maintenance plan, performing regular inspections and repairs, and performing special inspections after any events that may have damaged your roof.
