Comprehensive commercial roof maintenance plan

The best way to extend the life of your roof is with a comprehensive commercial roof maintenance plan. A well-maintained roof can last many years past its initial warranty period, and every astute building manager knows that pushing back roof replacement frees up capital that can be used for other business-related expenditures.

Commercial Roof Maintenance: When’s the Best Time?

Optimally, a commercial roof should be inspected at least twice a year, usually in the spring and in the fall. Most roof system warranties have specific maintenance guidelines that must be followed in order to keep the warranty in effect. In some cases, enrolling in a qualified commercial roof maintenance plan can actually extend your warranty.

Preventative Commercial Roof Maintenance Practices

In addition to regular inspections, warranty maintenance and repairs, there are things facility managers can do to extend the service life of their roofs. All workers who have access to the roof should follow general precautions, such as not smoking on the roof, walking only on designated walk paths and pads, promptly clearing drain clogs and making it a habit not to leave tools or other items on the roof.

Records Necessary for Establishing a Commercial Roof Maintenance Plan

Documenting the history of the roof is imperative to a successful commercial roof maintenance plan. It’s nice to keep both a digital copy and a hard copy of all the necessary documents, which should include original roof specs, shop drawings and proposals, daily construction reports, manufacturer’s roofing system product sheets, warranty documents and records of all roof changes, modifications and repairs.

Initial Roof Survey for a Commercial Roof Maintenance Plan

An initial comprehensive roof survey, including an energy audit analysis, provides a solid foundation at the start of a new commercial roof maintenance program. The survey should feature a detailed report of the roof’s current condition, the age and size of the roof, and the type of roofing system present. Any factor that influences the existing or future roof condition, such as location and type of access portals, the number and placement of paths, prevailing environmental factors and building use, are all-valuable for establishing a successful commercial roof maintenance plan.

Enrolling in a Commercial Roof Maintenance Program

Because a commercial roof is much more complicated and technical than it looks to the untrained eye, the best way to protect your investment is to hire a roofing specialist rather than handing over responsibility for the roof to a building maintenance crew. At Dynamic Exteriors, we started our exclusive Maintenance Program to assist our customers in making good roof repair and maintenance decisions. We use state-of-the-art thermography equipment that can detect potential leaks before they’re visible. Our goal is to keep your roof in top shape so you can go about the business of running your business.

Roofing problem solutions

All roofs are vulnerable to deficiencies that can lead to leaks. Extreme weather – tornadoes, hail, heavy snow, downed trees, even seasonal freeze and thaw cycles can damage your roof. By the time a ceiling stain appears indoors or water drips into your business, the damage is already underway. Water infiltration can compromise the internal structure of a building, destroy inventory and equipment, and can create slippery surfaces, putting people at risk for injury. You need a professional who can fix your roofing problem right and fix it fast.

Blistering and Cracking Broken or rusted flashing Leaky skylight Water standing on the roof more than 48 hours Water stains on ceiling Icicles/Ice dams at the edge of the roof Roof damage caused when installing or servicing rooftop equipment

Leaks aren’t the only roof issues that require professional attention:
