Why Commercial Roof Maintenance Is Needed
Commercial roof maintenance involves taking steps to prolong the lifespan of the existing roof by tending to small issues that can become bigger problems. Maintenance may involve reattaching flashing, resealing vents, or even patching small holes. It is best to have a regular roofing maintenance plan to protect the duration of the materials. Signs you need commercial roof maintenance include:
- It has been more than a year since roof maintenance has been performed
- You notice small issues like leaks around ventilation pipes
- Flashing has become dislodged
Reasons for Commercial Roof Repair
Commercial roof repair projects are explicitly targeted at mending one area of the roof. If a roof inspection shows signs of leaking from one specific area, roof repair is likely the best option. A few factors to consider while determining if roof repair is the best option include:
- How much of the roof needs to be addressed?
- How old is the roof?
- Is the area of repair due to material degradation or age?
- Is it more financially feasible to repair the damage or replace the full roof?
Reasons for Commercial Roof Restoration
Commercial roof restoration is essentially a complete replacement of some elements of the roof when it comes to older materials. For commercial flat roofs, this is often necessary due to materials deteriorating or not being as advanced as they should be for adequate protection. Also, roof coatings fall into the restoration category. For instance, some roofs need to be re-coated after 10 years to prolong their longevity. Roof restoration may be needed if:
- The roof is outdated, possibly more than 20 or 30 years old
- There are more advanced roofing options available
- The roof no longer offers adequate property protection
- The roofing membrane has perforations, leaks, or missing components
