Spring Maintenance For Your Roof

With spring upon us, you’re probably going over your spring cleaning checklist to ensure your property is in order for the season. Is your roof on that list? It should be! You may already be overwhelmed with your spring cleaning tasks and wondering where to start, so let us help you out. The following are a few ways you can clean up your commercial roof this spring.

Scheduling Regular Inspections

One of the best things you can do for your roof is to schedule regular inspections. Spring is an important time to get this done, as your roof likely sustained damage caused by harsh winter weather. Our technicians go over all of your roofing elements to determine whether repairs or restoration are needed. We will make note of the damages and schedule repairs ASAP.

Cleaning the Gutters

Believe it or not, gutters play a huge role in roofing issues. After winter passes, your gutters may be clogged with sticks, dirt, and other debris.  It’s important that you clean out any blockages, so your gutters don’t overflow and cause structural damage within your building. While cleaning out the gutters, look for damages that could have taken place due to heavy gutters pulling away from the building.

Washing the Rooftop

The surface of your rooftop should be cleaned each year when you take care of spring cleaning. Dirt buildup can cause mold and mildew to grow underneath as moisture is trapped. Proper cleaning will help you prevent this type of damage.

Conducting Repairs

After inspecting, cleaning, and washing your roof, it’s time to take care of the repairs. Even one small hole in the roof from a heavy hailstorm could allow moisture into your building. If the roof is damaged beyond repair, you may need a replacement, and spring is the perfect time to get that done.
