Managing and maintaining a commercial building requires you to keep track of many different aspects of your property. You have to schedule and track maintenance and repairs related to your HVAC, electrical, and ventilation systems.
When you add rooftop system maintenance, it becomes easy to see why many commercial building managers end up making costly mistakes that could easily be avoided. Proper maintenance of your flat roof system includes checking your seams, fasteners, membrane, base flashing, and roof substrate.
These materials can become damaged, loose, and contaminated for a variety of reasons. By not scheduling regular maintenance, you may run the risk of decreasing the lifespan of your roofing system or compromising your warranty. Extreme weather conditions require additional inspections to ensure that your rooftop system is working to protect your building against the changing environment.
It’s important that you conduct regular inspections and maintenance of your property’s roof. A skilled roofing service team will ensure that your roof remains in the best possible condition and under warranty.
If minor damages are overlooked, they can cause more serious problems in the near future such as water leakage or a complete roof replacement.
The following are some of the minor damages you should be aware of:
- Poor, inconsistent weld
- Seam voids
- Fastener placement
- Fasteners too long, or too short
- Unadhered membrane
- Unadhered base flashing
- Contaminated roof substrate
- Flashing displacement
- Abuse of installed roof
Even a small level of damage can cause water to penetrate your roof and lead to more serious issues. Maintaining your flat roof is essential to the wellbeing of your building and its occupants. Routine inspections are inexpensive and can save you money over time.
Flat roof systems are a popular choice for commercial buildings. They provide a high level of space and are affordable options for a variety of buildings. Flat roofs don’t require shingles or specialty materials. This reduces the cost of installation as well as the potential for any issues that can occur during maintenance or repairs.
Flat roofing systems are easy to maintain. A properly maintained flat roof can perform well for over thirty years. Their flat surfaces make it easy to resist the forces of high winds, as angled rooftops are at a higher risk of damage and loss of tiles.
