The roof is crucial in preventing moisture from penetrating building interiors. During the winter months, roofs get subjected to high winds, sleet, snow and debris from trees. This can be tough on all roofs, especially on aging, dilapidated ones.
The problem is that not many building owners have their roofs inspected before winter sets in. Such neglect can lead to damage, in turn leading to expensive repair fees. Don’t let your roof suffer such a fate. Get a pre-winter roof inspection while the fall weather conditions are somewhat accommodating.
Ask your building maintenance services expert to do a thorough roof inspection and ensure that they check the following.
Signs of Potential Leaks
Check for leaks from inside your place of business. A roof leak shows that your roof has gotten compromised. Signs of dripping, dark spots, sagging areas and outdoor light shining through all point to a leak. As water gets inside a building, damage like mold infestation could lead to costly repair costs. A thorough visual inspection can help prevent this. Don’t wait to call your waterproofing system expert for inspection and repair.
Be Mindful of Pests
Holes and other unsealed parts of your roof could allows rodents, insects and other pests into your property. Have your commercial roof experts see to these areas to keep pests out of your place of business. It would also help if you ask other building occupants to inform you of any rampant pest sightings so that you can have them addressed immediately.
