Types of Roof Maintenance
Roofing maintenance is the process of fixing various issues and damages that occur on roofing structures before they turn into major problems. Most damage comes from harsh weather, like snow, heavy rain, thunderstorms, or hail. For business owners, it can be a good idea to regularly inspect your roof and its components, especially after experiencing a heavy storm. This allows early detection of cracks and new damage, giving you enough time to contact a professional before the issue worsens.
The roofing materials used are one factor in determining maintenance needs. Another factor to consider is the location where your business is located. This is because different types of roofs may experience various maintenance issues in their specific areas. Some typical maintenance issues for different roofing types include:
Shingle roofs are a common type of roof that is susceptible to many different kinds of damage. Shingles can become damaged through severe weather. They can even be ripped from the roof in high winds. If a roof is older or undergoes extreme heat, shingles can also shrink, which can cause nails to be pulled out of place. All of these circumstances can leave holes in your roof for rainwater to seep through.
While tile roofing can be a more durable choice for your business, it can still present some maintenance issues. Tile roofs can become damaged through heavy winds or intense periods of hot or cold weather. They can also experience regular scratches and hits from branches and debris. Tile roofing is also susceptible to debris build-up in the roof valley, making it essential to regularly clean these areas.
Flashing is a part of your roof that covers joints and seams, which are areas that are most vulnerable to leaks and other problems. Upon purchasing a new business or having a commercial roof inspection, you may discover that the flashing used to seal the exterior is older or improperly installed. Flashing can also be sealed incorrectly and cheaper materials can cause issues in the future. Having a professional inspect your roof is important, especially before purchasing a new building. This way, you can ensure the longevity of your roof and business.
Commercial Roof Maintenance Services
New Jersey Roofing Company has experience with providing maintenance services to a variety of commercial businesses. We work with many commercial roofing types, including shingle roofs, tile roofs, flat roofing, as well as flashing. We also specialize in regular maintenance tasks, like cleaning and repairing gutters.
We recommend business owners clean their gutters twice a year, preventing them from becoming backed up by leaves, branches, twigs, and other debris. Debris backup can restrict the effectiveness of draining rainwater, causing water to pool on the roof and around your business. In turn, this can make it susceptible to floods, rot, and other damage. Gutters can also become damaged and potentially collapse if left untouched. Our professionals can clear out gutters to avoid potential problems, as well as install leaf guards that keep leaves and other debris at bay.
We also use advanced tools, like drones, to check for small issues and complete a variety of other roofing maintenance tasks, including:
- Checking for rotted wood
- Looking for rusted areas in metal materials
- Repairing broken or damaged shingles
- Checking for signs of leaks
- Inspecting roof structures, like air conditioning units, chimneys, vents, pipes, and exhaust fans
- Skylight maintenance and repair
We ensure all maintenance projects are completed in a quick and timely manner, and we have the tools and expertise to complete larger jobs. We also provide fair and easy warranties to protect your investment. Business owners who work with us can also access our knowledgeable and experienced team, who are ready to offer advice and suggestions on the best course of action for your roof repair and maintenance.
Why Seek a Professional?
Contacting a professional for general roofing maintenance can be a good idea in terms of saving money and your valuables long-term. When roofing issues are ignored or not taken care of properly, this can cause cracks and damage to eventually lead to more serious issues, like floods. In turn, this can ruin essential building structures like floors, walls, and ceilings.
Floods can also damage your appliances, inventory, furniture, and other items. By investing in professional services to fix maintenance issues, you can extend the longevity of your roof as well as protect important business items. Business owners can also have peace of mind that the quality of work and materials used are correct and sustainable through many weather conditions.
