If you’re a small business owner who also owns their own commercial property, building maintenance is likely one of your major concerns and expenses. One of the most important parts of your commercial building is the roof. If the roof fails, you could suffer losses due to product damage and extensive structural damage to the building.
To prevent the worst from happening, you need to work with commercial roofing companies to get relatively frequent roof inspections. If you don’t know what to expect from a roof inspection, you can watch the video posted here.
In it, a commercial roofing contractor goes through an entire roof inspection from start to finish.
The roof in the video is finished with a white PVC membrane and the roof deck is made from corrugated metal. He starts with the interior of the building to check the roof structure for damage or other problems. Once he has assessed the roof structure from the building’s interior, he inspects the exterior of the roof. He checks the seams and flashing for signs of water infiltration and checks for signs of water pooling, which can lead to problems over time.
If you need a roof inspection, contact commercial roofing companies in your area.
