One simple and effective way to prolong your commercial roof’s life is to have it professionally checked periodically. This is even more crucial after a major weather event, where your system may have sustained damage that’s tricky to spot. But as you schedule that roof checkup, make sure to ask your commercial roofer some important questions, including the following:
- On which areas will you be focusing? Your commercial roofer will usually check the more vulnerable spots of the system. The flashing, for example, can result in leaks when damaged while the drainage areas, if compromised, will allow water to pool on the roof surface. By asking this question, you get a clearer understanding of your roof’s weaknesses and what you can do to prevent them. What’s more, this helps you determine if your choice of contractor is actually familiar with commercial roofing systems.
- What commercial roofing materials do you use? Basically, you’ll want to avoid a contractor who isn’t even experienced at working with your specific commercial roof. This will not be a problem when you turn to a reliable roof expert like Rojas Roofing. Aside from having the necessary training and experience to perform comprehensive roof inspections, we can also work with different materials. These include, but aren’t limited to, single-ply roof membranes, metal, asphalt shingles and cedar shakes.
- Can you provide me with documentation? Because some commercial roofing systems are sensitive to unnecessary foot traffic, it pays not to hover over the roof inspectors as they check the system. But you shouldn’t leave it at that either. Ask them for photo documentation of the roof damage (the Before photos) and the work they’ve done (the After photos). Having these is also useful for when you’ll need to file a claim with your insurance provider for coverage.
