Business owners typically juggle a lot of balls and while you’re focused on keeping your business moving along, maintenance can fall behind. And when it comes to maintaining your business assets, roofing can be overlooked yet be one of the more critical components. Not only does it keep your company assets safe, but it can be a hefty investment.
Here are some quick tips to help you make the most out of your roof!
Keep Your Roof Clean!
Debris can quickly build up on your roof, including sticks, leaves and dirt. These can have a cumulative effect on the degradation of your roofing system and open up possibilities for water to penetrate your roofing system. Keeping a clean roof year-after-year can dramatically increase its lifespan and save you thousands.
Heating and Cooling Equipment
HVAC equipment is a notorious area for leaks to begin on a roof. Ensure that all equipment is mounted correctly and it utilizing the proper professional techniques to seal the roofing system. Not all HVAC companies have the experience to properly mount equipment to every roofing system and seal it correctly. By just assuming that it was done correctly, especially if you have inherited the building and have yet to inspect that part of the roof, you are open to the possibility of your roof being compromised.
