One of the most important components of a building is the roof. It provides protection from outside elements and added structural integrity. Industrial roofs have unique needs different from residential roofs.
In order to maintain the integrity of your industrial roof, you should schedule inspections at least twice a year. It is also recommended that you have an inspection after any severe weather event as well. These inspections provide you with a report of any problems by analyzing the condition of the roof and roof components. By scheduling multiple inspections throughout the year you are able to identify any problems quickly and reduce repair costs by catching the issue before it becomes larger. This allows you to schedule maintenance and repairs as soon as possible.
Industrial roofs deteriorate quickly when neglected. Neglected industrial roofs can leak causing damage to the underlying support system, structure decay and may harm electrical systems. These issues can become severe very quickly. Leaking water may also cause damage or complete loss to inventory or equipment stored in the building. This is another reason that regular maintenance is vital for your industrial roof.
If your inspection reveals the need for maintenance it should be scheduled as soon as possible. For example, open seams or punctures increase in severity over time. This is an issue that needs to be repaired as quickly as you can. It is also important to take care of less serious maintenance or problems quickly as they can turn into something more serious if you delay repairs.
