WHY ROOFING MAINTENANCE?
A commercial roof is a huge investment for a building owner, so don't install a new one and forget about it. If you want something to perform well, you have to maintain it. If you don't, you're putting your property at risk of damage from leaks, not to mention the risk of your guarantee coverage being jeopardized.
WHAT CAN CAUSE IMMEDIATE PROBLEMS?
Lightning, high winds, hail, drenching rains that overflow the flashing heights
Improperly added equipment or other items improperly added on the roof (items added by tenants are a very common source of roofing problems)
Punctures, holes, etc. caused by trades other than your roofing contractor
Vandalism or accidental damage even a small hole can let in a large amount of water into the roofing system.
Interior - Examine interior roof deck, walls, and cieling for evidence of leaks.
Roof Perimeter - Evaluate base flashing, metal work, caulking, and anything that would afftect the watertight integrity of the roof.
Field of Roof - Examine the condition of the roof; look for evidence of leaks, debris, or damage to the membrane. Also check ancillary items; evaluate penetrations for proper detailing and evidence of potential leaks.
