Your commercial building is a huge part of your business, and your roof is a huge part of that building. The last thing you want is to let your roof fall into disrepair, forcing you to get a roof replacement before it's truly necessary.
The best way to extend the life of your roof is with a comprehensive commercial roof maintenance plan. A well-maintained roof can last many years past its initial warranty period, and every astute building manager knows that pushing back roof replacement frees up capital that can be used for other business-related expenditures.
Savvy building managers that want to get the most from their roof investment realize that regular commercial roof maintenance isn't an option—it's an integral part of a fiscally responsible facility plan.

A commercial roof is much more complicated and technical than it looks to the untrained eye, the best way to protect your investment is to hire a roofing specialist rather than handing over responsibility for the roof to a building maintenance crew. At RJK Construction Co., we assist our customers in making educated roof repair and maintenance decisions. We use state-of-the-art thermography equipment that can detect potential leaks before they are visible. Our goal is to keep your roof in top shape so you can go about the business of running your business.
To this end we'll also make sure to inspect your roof regularly. Optimally, a commercial roof should be inspected at least twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. Most roof system warranties also have specific roofing maintenance guidelines that must be followed in order to keep the warranty in effect. In some cases, enrolling in a qualified commercial roof maintenance plan can actually extend your warranty.
In addition to regular inspections, warranty maintenance, and repairs, there are things facility managers can do to extend the service life of their roofs. All workers who have access to the roof should follow general precautions, such as not smoking on the roof, walking only on designated walk paths and pads, promptly clearing clogged drains, and making it a habit not to leave tools or other items on the roof.
The facility manager can also make sure that the initial survey for a commercial roof maintenance plan is properly filled out. The survey should feature a detailed report of the roof's current condition, the age and size of the roof, and the type of roofing system present. Any factor that influences the existing or future roof condition, such as location and type of access portals, the number and placement of paths, prevailing environmental factors, and building use, are all invaluable when it comes to establishing a successful commercial roof maintenance plan.
Due to their very nature, it's easy for flat roofs to stay out of sight and out of mind until costly damage occurs. Don't let this happen to you!
