Commercial roofs require a lot of upkeep as they are exposed to changing weather conditions. Consistent maintenance by a roofing contractor during all four seasons of the year is key to helping your roof last as long as possible.
Have Your Roof Inspected Every Spring and Fall
Having your roof inspected at least twice a year is the best way to catch any repairs that need to be made before they become an even larger problem. Have your roof looked over in the spring and fall so you can prevent damage from occurring during times of extreme weather.
Have a Maintenance Plan in Place
If you don’t have a plan in place for caring for your roof, it’s easy to put off doing important tasks, such as cleaning your gutters and replacing shingles or other damaged materials. It is important to work with an authorized contractor to increase the longevity of your roof.
Consider Upgrading to More Energy-Efficient Roofing Materials
While metal, concrete, or tile roofs can cost more money initially, these sustainable materials will save you money in the long run by cutting down your energy costs and extending the life of the roof. Additionally, metal can help reduce the damaging effects of the sun and heat in the summer.
Invest in a Commercial Roof Coating
While they should never be used as a substitute for necessary roof repairs or a full replacement, roof coatings can add as much as ten years to the lifespan of your commercial roof. They are also often quick and easy to apply. Some coatings, such as acrylic, are ideal for warm and sunny weather. Polyurethane, silicone, and thermoplastic coatings are a better choice for rainy climates.
From holes and leaks to rust and corrosion, there is a wide variety of issues that occur depending on the material of your commercial roof. For inspections, repairs, replacements, coatings, and more reach out to State Roofing by calling 206-207-5165 or emailing us today!
