Roof inspections are critical because these inspections identify the health of your roof and entire building envelope. Furthermore, regular roof inspections can spot potential risks that can then be corrected before these risks turn into costly damages.
So how often should a commercial roof be inspected? At the very least, you will want to have your building’s roof inspected on a semi-annual basis.
However, it’s important to maintain constant awareness of what is going on inside the building, as well as around the building’s exterior. These factors may present a need to have the roof inspected more often than twice per year.
For example, if there is a major storm in your area and you notice some potential areas of damage around your property, you may want to have your roof inspected as a precaution.
When surveying your building for potential risks to your roof’s health, start by inspecting the inside of the building. Look at the walls and ceilings for any signs of cracks, settling of the foundation walls, and water stains.
Take note of these signals and write down any potential areas of damage that you may have noticed. Doing so will be helpful when your roof inspection team arrives.
Furthermore, there are many factors that may warrant the frequency of necessary roof inspections. Factors like roof surface and age, geography, and weather conditions are just a few examples.
However, the bottom-line is that a healthy roof will prolong the life of your entire building, and vice versa. So, we recommend keeping a close awareness of the general appearance of your building and call in an inspection team if you have any doubts. As the saying goes, it’s better to be safe than sorry!
