5 Key Steps for Maintaining Your Commercial Flat Roof

Commercial roof maintenance requires proactive attention in the same way your car or computer does. Having a proactive approach to your roof maintenance will save you time, headaches and cost. Stay ahead of potential issues by following SUNVEK’s 5 Key Steps for Maintaining Your Commercial Flat Roof. 

Commit to a Seasonal Maintenance Plan

Routines help ensure our home maintenance plans don’t fall through the cracks. Fall and spring are perfect times to have your roof inspected to make sure there aren’t any issues. Has it been awhile since you’ve had a roof inspection? Worried there might be damage up there? Go ahead and schedule your roof inspection now so we can take a look! 

Keep Your Eyes Open for Damage 

Earlier we talked about Causes of Commercial Roof Leaks, and what to look out for. If you notice water dripping from the ceiling, staining on the ceiling or an unusual smell coming from up above, it’s time to call us so we can repair the problem as quickly as possible. The faster you notice an issue, the less destruction it can ultimately cause. 

Protect Your Warranty 

Most roof warranties require property owners to complete certain steps, including regular inspections and maintenance. If it’s been awhile since you looked at your roof warranty, pull it out and give it a read. Making sure you’re adhering to your warranty now will save you trouble in the future. Keep organized records of your roofing maintenance in case you need to prove it in the future.

Ensure Drains are Clear

Commercial flat roofing commonly has roof drains, to collect and drain rainwater through a network of pipes until it reaches the sewage system. Keep an eye on drains. If leaves, branches, or other debris collect around them, that can slow or even stop roof drainage, resulting in standing water on the roof. 

Trust Your Commercial Roofing Contractor 

When commercial flat roof repairs come up, you want them to be done by a professional who knows what they’re doing. Hiring a professional who understands your roof’s needs, as well as your warranty, will take a load off your mind. At SUNVEK, we’ve been at this for 30+ years. Your commercial flat roof is in good hands with us.
