Regular roofing maintenance and inspections have been proven to increase roof longevity significantly. Not inspecting can in some cases even void your roof warranty. Ideally, commercial roofs should be inspected both before and after severe weather seasons.  Your roof maintenance checklist will help ensure that you do not overlook any of the elements that require inspection. Failure to do so can lead to dangerous and unsafe conditions for yourself and workers on site.

  • You should be looking for obvious signs of problems from the interior, such as leaks, mildew, or mold. Check the exterior surface for any fallen limbs, dirt, debris, or standing water. Make sure there are no missing shingles.
  • If you have expansion joints or flashings, it is extremely important to check there for gaps or leaks. Clogged or damaged drains will need immediate attention. Inspect stairs, crossovers, platforms, and railings for structural soundness. Check specifically for loose parts, surface deterioration, and missing or damaged elements such as rail posts and treads.
  • Make sure any required signs are legible and posted in a prominent place.
  • Previous repairs are often the first thing to fail, especially if they were not done by an experienced professional. Double check to make sure the previous issue has been fixed and still working correctly.It helps to have all your warranty information handy to double check what items can and cannot be replaced free of charge.
