A property manager’s main priority is to ensure the safety of the tenants, and that means properly maintaining the building at all times. A commercial roof is the first line of defense against elements like rain, hail, heavy winds, snow and ice. Damage from a storm, or even just time itself, can affect the structure and well-being of the roof which can potentially put tenants in danger, and therefore should be addressed as soon as possible by a qualified roofer. To get the most out of a commercial roof, property managers should consider the following tips:
Inspect for Wear and Tear on a Regular Basis
At some point, any commercial roof will start to develop problems. The earlier they are detected, the easier they are to take care of. Wear and tear is natural for a roof, but regular inspections can uncover issues like moisture or leaks, standing water or improper drainage, surface erosion, or damage left behind by prior technicians.
Inspect Your Roof After Storms
Storms can wreak havoc on a roof and you may not notice the damage until tenants start to experience issues down the line. Strong winds or hail can cause holes, cracks or blisters on a roof’s surface, which can lead to leaking, water stains or even mold buildup. If you have had a severe storm in your area, it’s a good idea to get the roof inspected for storm damage as soon as possible.

Repair Damage Promptly
The worst thing you can do in terms of safety and overall roof maintenance is to put off repairs. A damaged roof is not going to fix itself, and it will only get worse over time. The longer maintenance is delayed, the bigger the problem will get, and the more complicated the repair may become.
Always Use an Experienced, Reliable Roofing Company
Using an inexperienced contractor can often leave you with more problems than you started with, as you may need to call in additional help to correct the mistakes they leave behind. Commercial roof repairs require a higher level of expertise and ability and many companies just don’t have the knowledge it takes to properly complete the job.
