Commercial roofing systems use very strong and durable materials, but their strength can be preserved only if they receive proper attention in the form of regular inspections and maintenance. Ideally, your roof needs to be inspected by a professional twice a year, once before summer, to check for any damage that might have appeared on the roof during the colder month and again in fall, to see whether the heat and the summer storms have caused any damage.
Here is what the process involves:
- Hiring a roofer – most fully licensed Colorado Springs commercial roofing contractors provide inspection and roof maintenance services for very affordable prices, just make sure the roofer you choose is properly insured;
- The inspection – your roofer will check the roof looking at it from the ground to detect any sagging, from the attic to check for holes that might let water through and from the level of the roof to inspect for any further damage in the gutter system and on the roofing materials. Your roofer will provide a written inspection report that summarizes the findings of the inspection and the proposed repairs;
- Roof cleaning – roof inspection should be associated with professional cleaning of the roof and of the drainage system.
