Many commercial and industrial roofs in Waterloo are flat roofs.. This makes it easier for them to accumulate damage, especially in poor weather conditions or without the proper upkeep.
Empire Roofing serves the greater Windsor, London, and Toronto areas. As an experienced and reputable roofing company, Empire provides services geared towards installing, repairing, maintaining, and replacing your commercial roof.
Why Regular Upkeep Is Important
It is very important that you conduct regular inspections and maintenance of your property’s roof. Of course, you could do this yourself, but an untrained eye will more than likely miss many things that shouldn’t be overlooked.
If minor damages aren’t seen, they can cause more serious problems in the near future such as water leakage or a complete roof replacement.
Minor Damages to Look For
- Poor, inconsistent weld
- Seam voids
- Fastener placement
- Fasteners too long, or too short
