Due to harsh weather conditions and the process of freezing and thawing, roof materials can expand and contract causing cracks, splits, and seams to open up allowing water to penetrate the roofing structure and cause leaks.
When a new roof replacement is not in the budget or if you're looking to extend the life of your existing roofing system; give us a call to find out what coating options are available to help you extend the life of your roof.
The best way to extend the life of your commercial roof is with a comprehensive roof maintenance plan. Ideally a commercial roof should be inspected twice a year, usually in the spring (after trees finish budding) and fall (after leaves have fallen). A well-maintained roof will last much longer than a roof that is ignored.
We will inspect the field of roof for loose or open seams, deterioration, loose, backed out or missing screws. Check flashing attachment on walls, roof curbs and boots or pitch pans around roof penetrations. Inspect the wall cap, roof drains, scuppers, gutters and downspouts for blockages or rusted areas. We will check for any trees that may be hanging over the roofing system that may contribute to stopping up the roof drains or gutters and provide conditions for the growth of algae and deterioration of the roof. We will check roof's surface for any oil deposits from grease guards, soft areas and vandalism. A maintenance program can be very beneficial to extend the life of your roof system.
Maintaining your Grease Guard filter is critically important to keeping your rooftop grease-free and fire safe. We use only PIG® Oil-Only Absorbent Mat Pad for our grease guard services.
Whether it be on a home or a commercial building, keeping the gutters and downspouts clean of debris is an important step in the right direction to ensuring the longevity of your roofing system. When water can't properly drain off the roof it causes ponding water, leaks and deterioration.
The primary function of a roof curb is to keep weather out, while supporting the equipment that's resting on it. If a roof curb is not installed correctly the first time, it can give you problems for years to come. Many companies focus is not on the roof's integrity, but rather the support of their equipment. Hence, the lack of certain essential items such as insulation, wood nailers, cant strips, etc. Call us today if you want your curb installed correctly from the start or if you need it repaired because it wasn't.
