Don’t Forget to Add Roof to the Spring Cleaning List!

While it is true that many people have a spring cleaning checklist, these are often for inside your building or property.  But do not forget to include your commercial roof to that list!

Your building’s roof is probably one of the hardest working aspects of your commercial building overall. It ensures exposure to all manner of weather and temperatures, which means it’s that much more important to stay current with yearly maintenance.

Now that we’re officially into spring and heading toward summer, it’s a good time to think about preventive maintenance as a means to prepare your roof for next winter. Implementing a roofing “preventative maintenance program” is key to preserving and extending the life of your current roof system. We recommend periodic inspections—they can be done quarterly, semi-annually (fall and spring are the best time for this), or annually.

Activities you should perform in the spring to protect your commercial roof

  • Check the gutters
  • Trim those trees
  • Clean the roof
  • Inspect for damage
  • Prevent future impairment
  • Look around inside
  • Perform necessary repairs
  • Get preventive maintenance with a professional roof contractor
