Flat Roof Inspections: Seasonal vs Annual

Anyone who owns a commercial building understands the importance of having routine maintenance checks of their roof. Depending on where you live, your building’s roof could be getting exposed to a wide variety of temperatures and elements of nature. Although a good commercial roof is meant to take a beating over time, they are not perfect. The standard inspection occurs on an annual basis, so when is the correct time to have a seasonal inspection?

Annual Flat Roof Inspection

As mentioned above, any owner of a commercial building should have their roof examined on an annual basis. Although the majority of the time there is very little damage or repair needed, having the inspection can save thousands upon thousands of dollars in the long run. Having an undetected leak go unpatched can lead to mold build up, which can turn into an insect breeding ground, which in turn can lead to a rodent infestation. It is always much wiser to have an inspection to resolve problems before they potentially turn into bigger and more hazardous ones.

Seasonal Flat Roof Inspection

Seasonal inspections are not required, and may be a bit excessive for some buildings to have someone inspect them every three months. However, if there was a summer full of storms with hail or a winter that had large amounts of snowfall adding weight to your structure, it’s a good idea to have it checked during the following season. It’s not worth getting leaks in your structure simply because you didn’t want to take the time to have a professional analyze it.
