October can be a spooky time of costumes, haunted houses, and scary movies, but you shouldn’t have a heart attack when it comes to your commercial roofing. Changes from extreme heat to cooler weather can take a toll on your roof, offering a lot of opportunity for leaks to sneak in. As we head deeper into the fall season, make sure you are prepared with these simple tips.
Regularly Maintain Your Facilities
The best way to reduce and even prevent major leaks is to keep your roof properly maintained. Scheduling bi-yearly maintenance routines with a licensed roofing company is a great place to start with roof maintenance. This allows for an expert to come and check the premise for anything that can turn into a leak later down the road. Many roofing companies offer a maintenance program to help keep your building on schedule. There are many different programs to choose from and some can even be customized to your building’s exact needs.
At Kodiak Roofing, our maintenance program is a proactive approach rather than a reactive approach. This allows problems to be identified early and saves commercial building owner’s money. Each building’s program is customized to the specific needs for the type of roof. With our experts and experience, we know how best to maintain your roof’s longevity.
Small maintenance issues can turn into big problems if they are not properly maintained. These problems can even lead to your facility being forced out of commission for a period of time, or even damaged products and goods.
Act Fast When Damage is Found
It may be tempting to ignore maintenance problems because it can be expensive to fix. However, it is important to not let problems get swept under the rug. Make sure to maintain scheduled check-ups and act fast when problems occur.
Things to keep an eye out for include:
- Puddles or water spots
- Foul Smells
- Discolored Walls
- Stained Ceilings
If any of these issues arise, contact your local commercial roofing company to seek immediate repair. We are available 24 hours a day for emergency roof repairs.
