A flat roofing system can be a quality option for your commercial roof. It’s one of the most long-lasting types of roofing items and it can also hold other utilities as well as your commercial air conditioner. In order to get the most out of your investment and to prevent emergency repairs, it’s important to regularly follow these maintenance tips!

Trimming Surrounding Trees

Any nearby trees often pose a risk of damaging your flat roof. A tree branch or limb could potentially fall onto your building. Trimming back trees could be the perfect way to prevent damage to your flat roof!

Pooling Water

Have you noticed that there’s pooling water across your roof and that it’s not properly draining, you could have the moisture slowly leaking into the building. Remove standing water off of your commercial roof and have a professional check your drainage systems. Pooling water can quickly cause structural problems if it is not managed.

Debris Clearing

Leaves, twigs and other debris may not cause an issue with your roof but it’s important to remove these items wherever possible. Debris can encourage pooling and the chance for mold growth or animals moving in on your roof. Having an expert work on your roof and clear debris safely can be crucial for keeping your roof looking its best as well as preventing problems later on with your roofing systems.

Regular Inspection and Maintenance

Any flat roof also needs regular inspection and maintenance to make sure that it can stay at its best. Hiring a professional to handle the ongoing maintenance and comprehensive inspections can make sure that your roof will offer you the best level of protection.
