Take Steps to Ensure Your Roof Lasts Long with Roof Maintenance from Wharry Engineering

Roof Maintenance
4/2/2018

When it comes to protecting your roof – and your property – there’s no better method than roof maintenance. Since your roof can be a gateway for moisture, it is essential to monitor and maintain it to ensure the integrity of everything beneath it. Whether you’re concerned about damage to products, equipment malfunctions, or employee safety, you can cover all three of these bases by taking care of your roof. As the property owner, you should be performing regular inspections, looking for the telltale signs of underlying damage. But, what are those signs?

Obvious damage

Some of the first things to keep an eye out for are signs of damage. Look for shingles that are beginning to curl, pools of water, or discolored areas on your roof. You should aim to inspect your roof at least two times every year and, if any damage is noted, contact Wharry Engineering to discuss roof maintenance.

Accumulated moisture

If you notice moisture gathering on your roof, take note of where it’s gathering, how much is present, and how it is entering your building. Is it flowing along – and into – a damaged seal? Has it formed a soft, shallow depression on the roof?

Inspect seams, vents, and more

Roof failures often occur in areas where the elements of your roof are joined. Whether it’s a rusted vent, a leaky seal, or a crack near an equipment installation, these irregular areas are easy entries for moisture.
