Ensure the Longevity of Your Roof – and Your Property – with Roof Maintenance

Roof Maintenance

Performing roof maintenance is performing property maintenance. As your building’s roof is – in most cases – the leading way that moisture enters, maintaining your roof is essential to protecting the products, equipment, and employees that are inside of it. While it’s easy to put off regular roof inspections, there are a number of identifiable “symptoms” of a failing roof: things that you – as the property owner – can look for. In today’s post, we’re going to give you a handful of tips that will help you determine if your roof is in need of repair.

Apparent damage

Sometimes, it’s as easy as looking for readily apparent damage. Whether you’ve got shingles that are lifting and curling, areas where water is pooling, or other obvious signs of damage, these are things that you, as an owner, can notice from afar. If you detect damage, be sure to schedule a professional roof inspection so that you can perform any necessary roof maintenance.

Follow the moisture

If you do spot moisture, try to track its path. Is it gathering inside of a depression? Is it entering the building through a degraded seal? By determining these things, you can better understand the extent of the damage.

Inspect irregular areas

In most cases, roofs fail in irregular areas. These areas, outside of the vast, consistent plane that comprises the majority of your roof, can be seams, vents, equipment installations, and more. Most of the time, when moisture is seeking a way to enter your building, this is where it finds its entrance.
