A roof inspection is a critical part of roof maintenance and your roof manufacturer's warranty.
During a commercial roof inspection, we evaluate your entire roofing system and all the components associated with it. Early detection of possible issues can save you money and add years to the life of your roof.
Conduct Routine Inspections
Forgetting to inspect your roof is perhaps the single biggest cause of roof failure.
Improper repairs are a common cause of problems and easy to avoid if repairs are performed by a Duro-Last authorized contractor and made with Duro-Last materials.
Keep Your Roof Clean and Free of Debris
Trash and debris can not only cause harm (such as punctures) to the roofing system but also can be a safety hazard; this can range from simple trip hazards to potentially overloading the structure with extensive ponding water from clogged drains.
Keep Metal Flashings and Sealants in Good Condition
Metal components are a common point of water entry.
Water leaks from masonry are often incorrectly attributed to the roofing system. Keeping walls and copings watertight and structurally sound goes a long way to keeping the building leak free.
Factors that can shorten the life of your roof
Forgetting about Routine Inspections
This is perhaps the single biggest cause of roof failure
Such as building settlement or expansion/contraction not accommodated by the roofing system
Punctures, holes, etc. caused by workers other than your roofing contractor
Lightning, high winds, or hail
Vandalism or accidental damage... even a small hole can let water into the roofing system
Not Fixing Problems Promptly
If a small problem is not repaired, then a large amount of damage can be incurred
