Keeping your commercial building’s roof in top shape is crucial throughout the year. Just like the weather changes seasons, so should your roof maintenance routine. At Danco Roofing, we’re committed to helping businesses like yours maintain a healthy roof. This seasonal checklist will guide you through the key tasks to keep your roof performing optimally year-round.

Spring Cleaning for Summer Sun

  • Clear Debris: Spring showers are the perfect opportunity to remove winter’s debris buildup. Clear away leaves, branches, and dirt from your rooftop, paying particular attention to drains and scuppers to prevent blockages that could lead to ponding water.
  • Schedule a Professional Inspection: Spring is an ideal time for a thorough roof inspection by Danco Roofing’s certified technicians. We’ll meticulously examine your roof for tears, splits, punctures, and other signs of wear and tear caused by harsh winter weather.

Fall Preparations for Winter’s Return

  • Flashing Forward: Metal flashing around your roof’s perimeter, vents, skylights, and other penetrations are crucial for preventing leaks. Inspect these areas for any loose or damaged flashing and have them repaired or resealed by a professional like Danco Roofing.
  • Ponding Water Patrol: After heavy rains, check your roof for any standing water (ponding). Ponding water can indicate drainage issues or low spots and should be addressed promptly to prevent leaks and potential damage.

Year-Round Vigilance

  • Clear Blockages Regularly: Throughout the year, keep your gutters and downspouts free of debris to ensure proper drainage and prevent water pooling that could lead to leaks.
  • Secure Roof Equipment: Regularly inspect and ensure all rooftop equipment, such as HVAC units and vents, are securely fastened, especially before the arrival of strong winds or storms.
  • Be Aware of Unexpected Events: Following a major storm, check your roof for any visible damage and contact Danco Roofing for a prompt inspection if needed.
