The benefits of having your commercial roof inspected far outweigh the costs involved. Indeed most annual inspections cost very little, especially when you compare them to the cost of the problem.
At Chaffee Roofing, we do plenty of annual commercial roof inspections. We recommend completing them on any roof because the benefits are so obvious. Sometimes clients are a bit skeptical, so we put a post together to help the skeptics see the way.
As a reminder to inspect your commercial roof, let’s take a look at some of the following benefits.
Leaks can happen anytime and anywhere. It does not matter how good the roofing material is; a bit of unexpected damage may let the rain or moisture leak through the roof.
We sometimes see the results of a bad installation project. Maybe the wrong adhesive was used, or just poor working practices left gaps in the roof. A qualified, professional contractor is worth the money, so be careful with cheaper alternatives.
An inspection will look for these problems. The commercial roof needs caring for and a bit of maintenance every year.
The smallest defects can cause the biggest problems. Find them before it is too late.
How is the roof aging?
A commercial roof will have a natural lifespan. If you care for it, the roof will reach its target and could stay strong for many years beyond too.
Annual commercial roof inspections will look for signs of aging. During these inspections, we will check for wear and tear and recommend fixes.
Doing annual repairs can add years to the life of your commercial roof.
Commercial roof inspections will save you money.
The qualified inspectors will see signs of storm damage or maybe the effects of a bad winter. They will also spot the damage caused by other trades. The technician fixing the air conditioner outlet may drop a screwdriver and puncture the roof.
It happens, and they may not tell you.
Prevention is always the best cure.
Finding problems before they grow into bigger ones will save you money.
