4 Tips for Winter Roof Maintenance on Your Commercial Building

We understand that keeping up with routine building maintenance can be challenging any time of the year. But let’s face it… it’s cold outside, and maintaining your commercial roof can easily get moved to the bottom of the to-do list. Do not fall prey to the winter blahs and put off this critical work! Take it from the commercial roofing experts, delaying necessary roof repairs this time of year can result in bigger problems once it warms up.

Here are 4 Easy Maintenance Tips you should consider this winter season to prevent leaks and damage from popping up come spring.

#1: Have A Roof Inspection 

Check for cracking of any seals as well as loose or damaged roofing materials. By repairing these you can avoid leaks and additional water damage.

#2: Check all Drainage Systems Prior to Snowfall 

Make sure that all gutters, downspouts, and drains are cleared of debris. Moving water off your roof is essential to avoid ponding and freezing that can damage membranes and drains.

#3: Check for Ice Dams

 If you notice icicles hanging off gutters, you probably have an ice dam. These can do extensive damage to gutters and downspouts.

#4: Remove Excess Snow  

If you are located in a more mountainous region where snow is likely, be certain to remove any excess buildup of snow on your roof. More than a foot of packed snow can increase damage to your roof system and increase the risk of collapse.
