Maintaining and Repairing Commercial Roof Systems

Commercial and Industrial Roof Maintenance

A roof system is arguably the most vulnerable part of a building’s exterior. Ultraviolet radiation, wind, rain, hail, snow, and sleet all affect a roof system’s performance.

Performance is based on good design, quality materials, proper installation, and a preventive-maintenance program. Roof maintenance is critical to preventing roof problems and keeping the roof in watertight condition. Early identification and repair of roof problems will help provide a long-lasting roof system.

Preventive Roof Maintenance For Commercial and Industrial Roof Systems

One of the biggest mistakes made by building owners and property managers of a new roofing system is the lack of maintenance performed after the initial installation.  Almost all manufacturers’ warranties call for a regular maintenance plan to keep the warranty effective and up-to-date.  Taking that a step further, a preventive maintenance program not only minimizes leaks, it will keep the roofing insulation dry and intact during the life of the roof increasing the odds that the insulation can be “re-used” during the next installation.  This not only reduces the cost of the 2nd installation (almost 30-40%), it also keeps materials out of the landfills resulting in a net positive environmental impact.

The roof, for the most part, is out of sight and out of mind. Ignoring the roof often leads to premature roof failure, which means water can invade the building and wreak havoc with people, equipment, and productivity. Clearly, regular preventive roofing maintenance should by a major priority for building owners and facilities managers.

A preventive maintenance program provides a number of measurable benefits. For instance, it can:

  • Increase the expected service life of a roof by as much as 50%
  • Reduce roof related expenses to free up capital for other uses
  • Cut the time and effort required to address emergency repairs

Implementing a regular, periodic roof maintenance program is critical to validating the warranty, prolonging the life, and avoiding failure of a commercial roof. Roof management programs are designed to allow for the longest useful life from your installed roofing system.

To ensure that the proper system is produced, technologies such as infrared moisture scans and professional estimating programs are used to identify and record moisture penetration, heat-loss areas, and related building envelope deficiencies.

Roof Repair, Restoration, Replacement and Preventive Maintenance On Your Commercial Roof System

Maintaining, repairing, replacing, or restoring commercial roofing systems are one of the largest expenditures for building owners. Implementing a regular, periodic roof maintenance program is critical to validating the warranty, prolonging the life, and avoiding failure of a commercial roof.

Regular inspections and proper roof maintenance will help extend the expected service life of a new or existing roof system. The money that building owners think is being saved by not performing regular inspections and maintenance will likely be spent in larger quantities when it becomes necessary to repair or prematurely replace the roof system. The cost of a single day of inspection and maintenance is minimal compared to the cost of removing and replacing the entire roof system.

If you have questions about your building’s condition, in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas of; St. Louis Park, Edina, Minnetonka, Bloomington, Plymouth, Excelsior, Wayzata, Eden Prairie, Chanhassen and Chaska, consult a reputable Minneapolis Minnesota commercial roofing contractor that has experience in commercial roof systems.
