Are Commercial low slope roofs maintenance-free?
No, low-slope roofs are not maintenance-free. Since there is little to no slope on most of these, regular maintenance is key to keeping water from entering the structure through the roof. Debris often gets stuck on these roofs and gutter systems, so we recommend having professionals clean off the roof regularly. How often depends on multiple factors - including proximity to multiple tree canopies. Once cleaned off, they can be properly assessed. Some areas may need to be resealed, some boots may need to be replaced, some metal may need to be protected with rust-resistant paint, and it’s also a good idea to regularly check seams, fasteners, and edging. Following a regular professional maintenance program can prolong the life of your roof, and lessen the cost of what could lead to much more expensive and extensive repairs.
What is the best time of year to replace a roof?
The best time of year to replace your roof depends on a few factors, such as the climate in your area and the type of roof you have. In general, though, it's best to do it in the spring or fall when the weather is milder. This allows the roofing materials to seal appropriately and prevents delays due to bad weather.
How often should I have my commercial low slope roof cleaned and inspected?
The frequency of cleaning and inspection for a commercial low slope roof depends on multiple factors, including the proximity of the roof to trees or other sources of debris. However, it is generally recommended to have the roof cleaned and inspected at least once per year by a professional.
