If you have a commercial or industrial business, your roof system is the first line of defense for your building. It protects against hail, wind, heavy rains and heavy sun exposure. If your roof is compromised, other parts of your building will start showing signs of damage, running up repair costs. Protect your roof, protect your Business.
As a business owner, it’s smart to stay on top of your (literally and figuratively). Particularly following a storm, make sure to stay vigilant and proactive or you could be costing your business. Here’s some hard-won advice on making sure your commercial business is safe by keeping your roof secure.
Have A Maintenance Budget
Being prepared is one of the best pieces of advice. A well-maintained roof is a safe one, and a longer living one. A budget now could save you big bucks you weren’t planning on spending later. Set a yearly budget for roof inspections and minor repairs. Most contractors suggest getting your roof inspected at least twice a year. Make sure the budget includes possible repairs.
Become An Expert On Your Roof
The more you know about your commercial roof, the more likely you’ll notice when something is wrong. It’s important to inspect your roof yourself after a big storm and to keep an eye out for interior water discolorations or other possible signs of roof damage. You should know when your last inspection was, when the roof on the building was last replaced and any previous issues the roof has sustained. This information will help guide you on what to look out for – so you can call early on new problems.
