A regular inspection of your roof may seem like a hassle, but there’s a peace that comes with the knowledge of knowing your roof is ready to serve you for years to come. Annual roofing inspections are intended to maximize your investment by addressing minor issues before they turn into significant problems.
To prevent these major problems, commercial building owners need to hire a professional to inspect their roofs annually or perform the inspection themselves.
How to inspect your roof
Spring and early summer are ideal to assess the condition of your roof. If you can safely access your roof, keep an eye out for roof field cracks and tears, gutters and drains, disintegrated sealant, and damaged flashing. By utilizing these roofing checklists, you ensure the smooth operation of a business or company.
You can follow these tips to ensure you get the most out of your inspection:
- Always perform an inspection at least once a year
- Prepare a checklist before getting on the roof
- Track and predict roofing issues and maintenance more closely.
While following these steps, always take notice of any issues that may require professional input.
