Commercial Roof Maintenance Guide

When was the last time you had your commercial roof inspected or maintained? Explore the benefits of a commercial roof maintenance program, what a program involves, and signs that you need a professional to protect your commercial investment. Protect your property with professional maintenance services that won’t cost you a significant amount.

Why You Need a Roof Maintenance Program

A commercial roof is a major investment that requires a significant amount of time and energy. As a business owner, you shouldn’t have to spend your own time or your employees’ time inspecting your roof for repair issues. Not only is this an inefficient use of your time, but it can also be difficult for an inexperienced individual to spot the signs of commercial roof damage.

A key part of roof maintenance is preventative strategies. These only work if you contact a professional before your roof becomes cracked, compromised or worn out. A professional building in Michigan is exposed to all types of weather conditions, so preventative maintenance can halt the effects of high winds, heavy snow and serious rainstorms.

Features of Summit Commercial Roofing Services

Compare the features of a roofing maintenance and survey program from leading roofing teams in your area to find the most affordable, efficient maintenance team. At Summit Commercial Roofing, we offer the following features as part of our comprehensive program:

  • Annual or semi-annual surveys
  • Basic upkeep
  • Warranty protection
  • Repair service recommendations
  • Detailed reporting

Routine surveys allow our roofing professionals to stay on top of your roofing situation. Without frequent monitoring, some maintenance issues may be missed. The ideal time to repair your roof is before a leak occurs, so schedule an annual or semi-annual survey from our team to prevent major water damage in your commercial property.

While surveying your roof, our team provides basic upkeep. This includes removing dead branches, leaves, pine needles and other debris from your rooftop. Ask about snow removal services to remove a heavy load from your roof and to prevent ice dams from forming in the spring.

As a licensed commercial roofing company in your area, Summit Commercial Roofing services won’t compromise your manufacturer’s warranty. Many roofing materials come with generous warranties, but they must be installed and inspected by licensed professionals in order to maintain your warranty.

Receive a detailed report on your roof that recommends any necessary repair services and helps you determine the quality of your existing roof. These reports help you plan your roofing maintenance projects. Our goal is to give you plenty of warning that your roof may need to be replaced. This allows you to save the working capital necessary to invest in a durable, leak-free roof. We don’t just check for emergency repair issues, but we also maintain your roof and help you determine an approximate lifespan of your existing roofing material. From there, we can recommend a number of services to replace your roof or extend its lifetime.

Common Signs of Commercial Roof Problems

Check your roof to see if you may need a commercial inspection or emergency repair service. Here are some common signs that your shingles, metal, or substructure is compromised:

  • Pooling water
  • Interior water damage
  • Moss or other vegetation growth on your roof
  • Visibly cracked, warped, or deformed roofing materials

These unusual signs point to a roof issue, but there are more subtle signs that your roof needs to be fixed. Schedule an affordable, tax-deductible roof maintenance program to check the pulse of your commercial building. Don’t be surprised by a sudden leak or a blown-off shingles, but maintain your property with as little as 1-to-3% of the replacement costs of your roof.

If you’d like to schedule an inspection of your roof today, please call (734) 531-7327. You can also contact us online for more information on the services we provide.
