The new year is just around the corner, and we know commercial property owners are interested in effective ways to maintain strong roofing systems. Throughout the year, natural wear and tear can decrease the useful life of a South Florida roof. Thankfully, there are proactive approaches to commercial roof maintenance that can keep your system as healthy as can be. In fact, let’s call them New Year’s resolutions for your commercial property’s roof:
Clean the roof
Over time, a commercial roof will collect debris. Roof debris can include leaves, branches, rocks, or other miscellaneous items that can rest on a roof’s surface, clog gutters, or get trapped under roofing materials. If debris is not removed promptly, it can decompose and deteriorate a roofing membrane. As expected, a clean commercial roof will look and perform better than a dirty commercial roof. Keep an eye on the roofing system’s exterior, especially after a windstorm or rainstorm. You may want to have your commercial roof professionally cleaned to restore it to a healthy, useful condition.
Repair obvious flaws
Sometimes a commercial property owner cannot ignore obvious roofing flaws. If your commercial roofing system is missing shingles or tiles, has damaged flashing, or has damaged gutters, you may want to complete appropriate repairs as soon as possible. Those issues can be easily solved with the help of a professional roofer. Most importantly, addressing miscellaneous repairs early will save you time and money down the line.
Schedule a professional inspection
One way to make your roofing system last as long as possible is to implement routine maintenance for your roof. At All American Roofing, we recommend routine maintenance once a year for a standard commercial roof. This maintenance should be conducted by a professional roofer who is licensed and experienced in South Florida commercial roofing systems.
Consider viable options
If subtle repairs and routine maintenance are not enough to keep your current commercial roof in shape, consider a complete roof replacement. A new roofing system can be a worthwhile investment if you want to increase the value or the useful life of your commercial property. For some commercial property owners, Ygrene Financing, a PACE funding program, may be an option to help finance a new roofing system. This coming year explore the viable options available to you in order to maximize your commercial property’s potential.
