Have you got a flat commercial roof? Would you like some tips on how to maintain your flat commercial roof?
If you want your flat commercial roof to last a long time you should spend an ample amount of time maintaining it. Regular maintenance can save your business a lot of money in repairs for years to come.
The biggest problem with flat commercial roofs is that there isn’t a slope that will automatically get rid of water.
This is why they come equipped with drains, several of them. You need to ensure that none of them are blocked. Blocked drains will lead to stagnant water which will lead to mould. This will eventually cause the destructions of the roof and bigger problems like leakage.
Instead you will save a lot of money and discomfort if you get rid of the blocks immediately. This is why you should check for blocks every week or month at least.
Leaves and twigs that fall on the roof can not only block drains but can also cause the growth of mould and weeds. So regularly give your roof a sweep to get rid of these things. A leaf rake or blower can help with this.
Every roof has a limit on the capacity it can withstand. You need to know what this is so that you don’t exert too much weight while maintaining the roof. You will then know how many people can be on the roof at a time and the type of equipment you can use.
Not everyone at your workplace will be willing to help out with the maintenance of the roof as most people will have no clue about it. Added to that there is the risk of injury. You could be left with an unwanted lawsuit that could bankrupt your business.
The solution to this is to hire a roofing repairman. They will know exactly how to deal with a flat commercial roof and also have the necessary equipment and they will do a much better job. So if you need a roofing repairman contact us at ECR Roofing today.
