As we welcome the freshness of spring, it’s crucial for commercial property owners to turn their attention to roof maintenance. The transition from cold, harsh weather to warmer temperatures provides the perfect opportunity to assess and ensure the integrity of your roofing system. Here are three vital tips to protect your commercial roof this spring, along with information on how our Asset Management Program can keep your roof in peak condition all year round.

1. Conduct an Annual Roof Inspection

Spring is an ideal time to conduct a thorough roof inspection to assess any damage that may have occurred during the winter months. Snow, ice, and cold temperatures can cause a range of issues, from minor cracks and leaks to significant structural damage.

An annual inspection should include checking for signs of aging and wear, ensuring that flashing is intact and secure, and examining the roof membrane for punctures or tears. Also look for any irregularities in the roof’s surface that could indicate underlying issues.

2. Ensure Gutters and Drains are Free of Debris

Gutters and drains play a crucial role in preventing water accumulation on your roof, which can lead to leaks and structural damage. Over the winter, it’s common for debris such as leaves, twigs, and dirt to accumulate, obstructing the flow of water away from the roof.

As part of your spring maintenance, make sure all gutters and drains are thoroughly cleaned to allow for proper drainage. This not only protects your roof but also enhances the overall longevity of the drainage system. 

3. Inspect the Interior for Signs of Water Intrusion

While external inspections are crucial, it’s also important to check the interior of your building for any signs of water intrusion that could indicate roof leaks. Look for water stains on ceilings and walls, especially after heavy rainfall, as these can be the first indicator of a roofing problem.

Catching leaks early can prevent significant damage to insulation, electrical systems, and interior furnishings.
