Lack of maintenance and failure to correct minor roof deterioration in early stages is one of the major causes of premature roof problems. A good time to inspect your roof is in the spring; checking for any damage that may have occurred during the winter.
Protecting your commercial roof from elements is essential to staying in business. Whether you work in an office, garage or warehouse, the roof must be in condition to prevent water damage that can cause work stoppage. Winters can be harsh to roofs because accumulated snow or ice only takes a few degrees to melt, causing water to migrate in through the roof.
Ongoing and proper maintenance of your building's roofing system is part of a building owner's responsibility. Be sure to only allow approved contractors to maintain or perform repairs on a guaranteed roofing system.
A multipronged effort designed to make commercial buildings 20 percent more energy-efficient during the next decade was recently introduced. By engaging and empowering the private sector, the presidential administration hopes to encourage investments for the upgrade of offices, stores, schools, and municipal facilities, as well as universities, hospitals and other commercial buildings.
Buying a new roof system is an important investment. Before you spend your money, spend some time learning how to evaluate the roofing contractor who may be doing the work. Roofing contractors are not all alike; insist on working with a professional.
