The Importance of Commercial Roof Maintenance & Repair
http://www.peakperformanceroofing.com/the-importance-of-co…/
The roof is a commercial building’s first line of defense from natural hazards such as wind, rain, fire, hail, ice, snow, and extreme heat. It is also the most vulnerable part of your building. Every day, your roof is exposed to weather and other elements that may contribute to decay and deterioration, increasing the risk of damage to the roof itself and the contents below it.
The International Building Code (IBC), which sets safety standards for commercial building, requires that roofs “serve to protect the building.” Having a roof that “protects the building” starts with design, materials selection, and installation at the time a facility is built or remodeled—events that occur infrequently and may be outside the scope of most businesses’ ongoing activity. But it also includes a regular program of inspection, maintenance, and repair—activities that should be part of your operational planning in order to prolong the useful life of your roof and make sure it does its job in protecting your business from weather damage.

Maintenance Tips to Help Prevent Roof Leaks

http://www.peakperformanceroofing.com/maintenance-tips-to-help-prevent-roof-leaks/


These 5 simple tips will help us locate current or future leaks and show how a maintenance program can help identify potential problems before they cause damage.

If it pops through the roof, we will look at it. Penetrations are the most common leak sources and will stop the natural water flow off a roof.  These include:

Chimneys. The top leak source. Does the chimney have a cricket? Is it properly step flashed and counter flashed? Does it need to be sealed?
Skylights. Water gets trapped behind them. Is the flashing in good repair? Is the skylight itself leaking?
Plumbing vents. Do the vent stacks have neoprene or rubber that has cracked with age? Do they need to be sealed or painted? Have critters chewed on the pipe or flashing?
Is the satellite or cable flashed properly?
Living on the edge. A drip edge is not just aesthetically pleasing, it is important to help ensure water is kept away from the fascia and moved off the roof.  A common leak source in the eaves and cause of wood rot is a missing drip edge. Wind-driven rain will enter the gap between the roof deck and fascia board.
A drip edge also helps to keep out insects, critters, and snakes. Make sure to check the drip edge when looking for leaks.

Every step I take. Areas where step flashing should be installed are a common leak source and maintenance item. We inspect these areas for damage:  Dormers, Roof-to-wall transitions, and Wherever low-quality sealant or mastic has been used in the past.

What’s in YOUR attic? Many times, homeowners think the roof is the culprit, but problems can come from improper ventilation, plumbing, air conditioning, condensation, vent fans, and animal or bug infestation in the attic.

Be on the lookout for:

Algae stains on interior plywood
The “M” word: mold
Soaked insulation when it hasn’t rained
Black rings or rust around nails, which is the first sign moisture is condensing in attic spaces
Is there a lack of ventilation that is causing the attic to overheat or accumulate moisture?
Are the intake vents clogged with paint, spider webs, dust, or insulation?

Mind in the gutter. Many homeowners do not realize the importance of their gutters. They need to be installed and sloped properly to drain, tightly fastened, and free of debris.

A preventive maintenance plan consisting of periodic inspections, routine maintenance, and minor repairs can help avoid costly problems down the road. A thorough inspection, performed regularly by a PEAK PERFORMANCE Roofing, Inc. professional roofing contractor, can monitor the roof’s condition and help prevent small problems from becoming major roof leaks.
