The condition of your roof plays a major role in the life cycle of your building. DC roofing is here to help you extend the life of your roof through regular inspections and maintenance.
Because a commercial roof is a costly financial investment, we recommend a regular, preventative maintenance program designed to save you money and give you peace of mind over the years. Large HVAC units, vents and other mechanical roof penetrations are potential weak spots in the roof that require regular monitoring and maintenance. High traffic areas are high risk areas. Foot traffic near hatches, access points and paths around HVAC units increases the risk of damage. Periodic inspection and maintenance are necessary in these areas.
Water retention is a red flag. Proper roof drainage is essential to the health of the roof, but seasons of accumulated leaf debris and clog gutters, drains and downspouts creating a pooling hazard.
A roof nearing the end of its life cycle is more likely to develop problems than a new roof. However, a regular maintenance program will keep you informed of important options such as the application of coatings that can extend the life of your roof.
Equipment and inventory loss or structural impairment due to water damage can have a substantial financial impact on commercial building owners. Without regular inspections and maintenance, your roofs warranty could lapse, leaving you with costly out-of-pocket repair bills.
