The roof of your building is always going to be a vital concern. If any damage comes to it, it can have an enormous effect on the rest of your building. It can be very expensive to replace an entire roof. But don’t panic, it’s possible to maintain and protect a roof so that it can last for years.
If you want to keep your roof in the best condition, you need to regularly check it. Try to inspect your roof every six months. You want to look out for any heat or water damage that could affect the roof. If there’s been a bad storm or extreme weather we recommend you check your roof as soon as possible.
The more on top of checking your roof for issues you are, the easier it is to do any repairs. The longer you leave it, the more likely you are to cause permanent damage to your roof.
You want to make sure you regularly check seals and consider if they need any extra protection. You should also be cleaning away pools of water and any rubbish and debris that have ended up on the roof. Debris and rubbish can turn into mulch; you could end up with a garden on top of your building!
If you’d rather have a professional opinion, check out the NFRC for an approved contractor.
