7 Tips to Keep Your Commercial Roof Spring-Friendly

Posted on March 1st, 2021 by Applied Roofing Services

Spring is a great time to schedule commercial roofing maintenance and repairs. Any snow, rain, hail, or storm from the previous season might have caused mild to moderate damage to your roof. Therefore, performing some simple spring maintenance tasks such as cleaning gutters, trimming trees, and scheduling a professional inspection can help keep your roof spring-compatible.

Here are some spring maintenance tips for commercial roofing:

Clean Your Gutters

Tree limbs, moss, and leaves might have blocked your gutters and prevented water from reaching the drains, resulting in overflows and structural damage. Therefore, cleaning your gutters is essential while preparing your roof for spring. Call a professional if accessing or cleaning the gutter looks difficult to you. Along with cleaning, a professional will check your gutters for rust, cracks, or loose parts and fix them immediately.

Wash the Rooftop Surface

To prevent mold infestation caused by an accumulation of dirt, wash your rooftop using a commercial pressure washer and cleaning solutions.

Inspect Your Roof After Disastrous Weather

Severe weather such as high winds, hail, snow, and torrential rainfalls can cause your roof shingles to crack or loosen. Inspect your roof after extreme weather conditions to check for any signs of damage or repairs needed. Snow and ice build-up can damage your roof shingles, so thoroughly inspect them and replace the damaged, worn out, curled, or broken ones.

Conduct a Moisture Survey

A moisture survey uses infrared scans to reveal what is happening under the roof membrane. It detects changes in your roof’s materials when water is present, the level of heat retention or loss through the insulation, and other problems that are not visible to the naked eye.. Moisture surveys must be conducted once in every five years.

Trim Trees

Overhanging tree branches or branches that touch your roof can cause extensive damage by promoting damp, shaded areas that encourage mold growth. To prevent such damage, make sure to regularly trim nearby trees.

Repair Leaks

Harsh winter weather can cause wear and tear in your roof, resulting in leaking holes. Water leakage inside your commercial property will cause expensive repairs if not properly handled. While performing rooftop spring cleaning, a professional roofing contractor will examine signs of downspouts, roof membrane, caulking, edges, vents, and other roofing areas to fix any leaks or damages.

Schedule an Inspection

Scheduling an inspection with a professional roofing contractor is recommended, as they will examine all the nooks and crannies of your roof to detect any repairs that need to be fixed immediately, including:

  • Damaged flashing
  • Ceiling stains
  • Soft spots
  • Mold infestation
  • Loose fasteners and sealants
  • Bubbling and punctures in the roof membrane

Follow these tips to maintain your roof this spring.
