Frequently Asked Questions

  • How often should a commercial roof be inspected?

    We recommend professional inspections twice a year, typically in the spring and fall, as well as after severe weather events. This will ensure your roof is sound and identify damage so repairs can be made before the damage becomes more serious, not to mention more costly.

  • Can I perform roof maintenance tasks myself?

    Although you can perform your own maintenance tasks, it can be dangerous to climb up on larger buildings, even if they are only a story or two. It is also possible you can cause more harm than good, such as removing protective coatings by cleaning or dragging debris across the surface. We say it is something best left to professionals to maintain the integrity of your roof and avoid costly accidents that can lead to liabilities.

  • What does a commercial roof maintenance plan typically include?

    A good commercial roof maintenance plan like ours includes:

    • A thorough inspection
    • Cleaning
    • Removal of debris
    • Gutter cleaning
    • Minor repairs, such as applying sealants to cracks
  • What are the signs that my commercial roof needs maintenance?

    There are several signs that indicate your roof needs maintenance, including:

    • Visible damage, such as lifting metal or blistering and peeling of a flat roof
    • Water stains on your ceiling that indicate roof leaks
    • Pooling water on the roof
    • Increased energy bills that could indicate water damage to insulation
    • Moldy smells
    • Discoloration in interior walls, such as rust
    • Damaged eavestroughs
    • Icicles in the winter
  • What are the consequences of neglecting commercial roof maintenance?

    Maintenance neglect can lead to a whole list of woes that can cost you money over time, including:

    • Slow leaks that cause mold growth
    • Algae and vegetation growth related to debris and water on the roof
    • Structural damage related to water-damaged beams
    • Premature roof failure causing serious injury and damage
    • Decreasing the value of your commercial property
    • Possibly keeping customers and skilled employees away who feel your building is unpresentable or unsafe
  • How does weather affect my commercial roof and its maintenance needs?

    Ohio weather takes its toll on your commercial roof, from the UV rays and heat of the sun in the summer to extreme rainstorms and heavy winds in the spring and from heavy snowfalls in the winter to fluctuating temperatures all year round. The older your roof and the less effort invested in repairs and maintenance, the more vulnerable your roof is to weather related damage. Other weather-related factors include having mature trees with loose branches on the property that can fall on your roof in high winds and having full sun exposure.

  • Why is regular maintenance important for a commercial roof?

    Regular commercial roof maintenance extends your roof's lifespan, prevents serious leaks that can lead to structural damage, and saves money on costly repairs both to the exterior and interior of your building. Although it might seem you are wasting money with maintenance twice a year, it will save money in the long run. You can protect the value of your commercial property and your business assets.
