Prevent Roof Disasters

It’s rare for a roof to fail with no prior warning signs. When you inspect your commercial roof regularly, you can detect and avoid major problems. Have maintenance check the roof after major storms, or as part of seasonal property maintenance. Look for loose shingles, worn-out flashing, or other signs of age. Twice a year, clean out the gutters so they drain rain, snow, and ice away from your roof.

Once a year, bring in a commercial roofing firm like Brandstetter’s KangaRoof to perform a thorough inspection. The roofer can assess all aspects of the roof, replace worn-out components of your roofing system, and ensure the roof is in good shape.

Communicate With Your Roofer

Communicate openly with your roofer about any problems you’ve had, or any damage you noticed on roof visits. For instance, let the roofer know if ice dams were a problem over the winter.

Don’t just take our word for it! Ask questions, especially if a commercial roofer suggests you’ll need a new roof in the next couple of years. Make sure you understand what’s wrong, how to fix it, and how much repairs or replacement parts will cost.

Document the Work

Keeping good documentation protects your business. It also allows you to take advantage of any manufacturer’s warranties or workmanship guarantees if something goes wrong. Keep a log of roof maintenance that details the date of roof repairs, the location of the work, and the problem. Take “before and after” photos, so you can see the damage and the repair. Note which company performed the work.

As you go through the prevention-communication-documentation cycle each year, the notes you keep will become even more valuable. You’ll return to the documentation in conversation with contractors and in knowing which areas of the roof to inspect. You’ll be able to tell at a glance if there are problems with certain aspects of your roof or if a company’s work keeps failing.
