The International Building Code (IBC) sets safety standards for commercial buildings, requiring roofs that protect the building. This begins with proper and safe roof installation. But it continues with regular inspections, maintenance and repairs when needed.
The best way to extend the life of your roof and protect your investment is to have a comprehensive roof maintenance plan for your commercial property.
Prolong the life of your roof by catching potential issues early. You can do so by having a minimum of one annual roof inspection performed.
While this is all best left to a professional roof inspector, you can look for warning signs on a regular basis on your own. Are there water stains on the ceiling? There could be a roof leak, and mold growth as a result.
A well-maintained roof can last many more years than if you only react to major issues as they happen. Develop a maintenance plan, have regular inspections, including after major weather events, repair issues early, and you are more likely to postpone the major expense of replacing a commercial roof.
