Fall is now in full swing, which means the next few months will be colder. The drop in temperatures, as well as the changes in the weather, can affect the roofing system of your commercial property. Winter can exacerbate roofing problems, which is why you need to be on top of numerous issues that can compromise its performance and function.
In today’s blog post, Blue Square Roofing & Construction, LLC, your local roofer, shares these commercial roofing system tips to consider this fall.
Be Aware of Roofing Hazards
Authorized personnel who may be walking on the roofing system may find it hard to maintain footing during wet weather. Precipitation in the fall and winter can create a slip risk, so it pays to get your staff and yourself aware of the hazards while on top of the property.
Conduct a Roof Inspection
Extreme weather is expected come the winter months. If your property is located in an area where winter storms occur, take action as soon as possible to ensure the roof can get through the harsh weather intact. Apart from checking for a roof leak, be sure to inspect for stains and cracks in the exterior walls. Inside, examine the ceiling for any signs of leaks and staining. See to it that the gutters and downspouts are clog-free.
Prepare for Potential Storms
Take on a proactive approach when dealing with storms or any form of bad weather during fall or winter. See if your commercial property or facility has strong plans when it comes to addressing common storm conditions. If your roof warranty is still valid, find out whether it covers extreme storm losses.
