5 Reasons to Schedule Roof Maintenance Inspections

Commercial Roof in Altoona

Now is the perfect time to think about the fifth wall of your building—your roof. It’s easy to forget about the part of your space that often goes unseen, but just like any other aspect of your building, your roof needs general maintenance periodically to sustain its longevity and ensure its maximum performance. Each new season brings with it different weather patterns and debris that affect the quality of your roof. Whenever the season changes, you know you need to call Duerson Corporation for a free roof analysis where we’ll create a customized maintenance program just for you.

If a free analysis from the roofing experts isn’t enough to convince you to schedule regular maintenance checks, here are some other benefits of having your roof properly maintained.

Reduce the Risk of Interior and Exterior Damage

Your roof is your first line of defense against Mother Nature’s harsh elements. If you notice any interior sagging, water damage or leaking, dark spots or trails, or light from the ceiling, chances are the damage is severe enough that you’ll have to pay for repairs to the inside of your building as well as the roof. Scheduling regular maintenance inspections is a preventative measure, and Duerson’s trained roofing professionals can oftentimes detect a minor problem in a roof before it becomes major.

Keep Drainage Systems Clear and Functional

The drainage system for your roof helps to quickly move water away from the building to help minimize structural damage, ponding water, which may become a mosquito breeding ground. During a routine roof inspection, the drainage systems will be examined to make sure there are no blockages and that they are functioning properly; so the next time it rains or storms, you have peace of mind knowing water is properly flowing to the roof drains or gutters.

Remove Damage-Causing Debris

Your roof is exposed to all the elements—weather, nature, wildlife, etc. Debris that makes its way to your roof, such as twigs, leaves, nesting materials, Frisbees®, and firecrackers, can clog the drainage system or even cause damage to the roof itself. Ice during the winter months can build up and also be a detriment to the roof’s performance. Regularly removing debris from the roof will save you money in damage repairs, and it will also ensure your building and the people who inhabit it remain safe.

Extend the Roof’s Lifespan

Roof replacement and repairs can be costly, which is why you want your roof to last as long as possible. The sun, wind, hail, rain, snow, and debris work to wear down the quality of the roof as soon as it’s installed. But preventative roof maintenance is similar to preventative medicine in that it’s intended to detect problems early and treat them before they become a more serious issue. Regular inspections along with Duerson’s personalized maintenance plan may help extend the life of your roof.

Maintain Positive Tenant Relations

Having one of our roofing professionals routinely inspect the roof reinforces positive relationships with your tenants. You show that you care about their safety and wellbeing by making sure the roof remains structurally sound to protect them from outdoor elements, and they will most certainly appreciate your attentiveness to their needs.

Don’t wait for a minor problem to develop into a major complication. Contact the roofing experts at Duerson Corporation today to arrange your free roof analysis and to schedule roof maintenance.
