2 Essential Steps to Commercial Roof Maintenance
When it comes to having a well drafted commercial roof repairing plan, there are two main aspects that cannot be ignored and must be taken into account:
First is to have regular/frequent inspections and second is to conduct the needed repairs based on the inspection report received. By following these easy, simply and effective steps you can rest assured that the life of your property would be definitely extended. Remember the old cliché, prevention is better than treatment? the same applies for your property. The sooner you figure out the issues that you’re your attention the quicker you would be able to address these problems. So how frequently you should get your property inspected? Most industry experts recommend bi-yearly inspections by qualified professionals to give you an accurate rating about the conditions and safety standards. These inspections will give you an idea to the extent of existing damage and you would be able to act on the needed repairs before they become major. You can read more about maintenance tips and schedule by visiting several interest websites and safety publications.
The twice a year rule though is not a hard and fast rule, it depends on so many factors including geographical, climate and weather of your area. In some location, where the weather conditions are stable and do not change drastically throughout the year, you may go with bi-yearly inspections. However, in areas where storms, tornados, hail, rain, snow or other natural weather effects are frequently happening, you may need to have a quarterly inspection to ensure that the building roof is in satisfactory condition.
A common mistake done by many property managers is that they feel it is unnecessary to hire a professional inspection team and instead consider this a self-initiative for which they don’t need an outside opinion. This could and may turn out to be a huge mistake, since hiring a profession inspection firm would remove you from any liabilities in case of a disaster or an accident. These companies have professionally trained inspected with years of experience and training to give the best advice and recommendations to help you make an informed decision.
