Roof inspections are vital to ensuring your rooftop is watertight and will perform as expected when the first rain storm occurs after a long hot summer season is over.
The Summer's heat is one of the most damaging elements to a roofs surface due to the destructive UV rays from the sun. The sun's heat promotes roof deterioration by slowly drying out the membrane, which leads to embrittlement, cracking, loss of flexibility, and eventually leaks and other failures.
Being proactive and conducting semi-annual roof inspections, every Fall and Spring, can save you money, time and a lot of frustration. Roofs are often over looked because they are "out of sight, out of mind"; however, when that first leak occurs, you can experience a lot of unnecessary trouble that can lead to business closures, loss of work-hours, damaged equipment in the building and frustrated tenants who occupy the building.
