Preventive maintenance is essential for just about every system in your commercial structure. From HVAC to electrical, plumbing, and telecommunications, regular inspections and preventive services can help to keep everything running effectively and efficiently, reducing the amount of money you might spend on more significant repairs and replacement of key components. The same holds true when it comes to roof maintenance in Providence in the surrounding area. Just think of all the potential issues that could impact the performance of your roofing materials and their ability to protect your assets underneath. Year-round environmental concerns that range from UV-rays, high heat, and humidity in the summer to wind, snow, hail, and ice in the winter should remind you that your Rhode Island commercial roofing requires preventive services, too.
Start by contracting with a trusted commercial roof repair company to offer inspections in the spring and the fall. Springtime inspections help businesses to make essential repairs that are necessary after a particularly heavy winter snow season. Fall inspections help to prepare your commercial roof for the coming winter season and take care of any repairs to commercial, industrial or residential metal roofing and other roofing materials that might have been damaged during the hot summer months.
Some of the areas that require regular inspections include:
- rooftop vents and rooftop equipment to ensure that everything is properly sealed
- check for any signs of damage to the roofing materials
- look at all flashings and penetrations to check for gaps and tears in the materials
- inspect all downspouts and drains to ensure that there is no blockage that might cause drainage issues
Once the inspection is complete, the Rhode Island commercial roofing professional will make recommendations for preventive maintenance according to the manufacturer’s suggestions to increase the life of the materials. They will also advise you of any repairs that might need to be done, including cleaning of the roofing materials, downspouts, and drains to prevent future issues from occurring throughout the year. In most cases, small repairs will be extremely affordable and are preferred over the cost for significant repairs that might be necessary if those small issues are not corrected as soon as they are discovered. Repairs can be made to all types of roofing, including commercial or residential metal roofing, EPDM rubber roofing, TPO roofing solutions, and even slate roofing installations.
Emergency Repair Services
In the event of an accident or incident that involves your roof and compromises the ability of the materials to protect your commercial structure, emergency repair services might be necessary. Contact A&M Sheet Metal & Roofing for roof maintenance in Providence and the Greater Southern New England area if you suspect there might be an issue. A fallen tree branch, gale-force winds, heavy hail storms, or the appearance of telltale signs that water is making its way into your structure are all good reasons to contact commercial roof repair. We can come out and perform an inspection, advise you regarding the condition of your roofing materials, and provide you with an estimate for repairs.
The best way to avoid emergency services is with preventive maintenance. However, even with the best maintenance program, emergencies can still occur, such as storm-related acts of God. Depending on the type of roof that you have on your structure, repairs could be minimal or might require more extensive work. If you are in a location where incidents that can result in roof damage are common, consider speaking with our Rhode Island commercial roofing company to find alternative materials that will be able to better withstand these conditions. Commercial, industrial and residential metal roofing, as well as EPDM rubber roofing and TPO roofing solutions, all have advantages over more traditional roofing materials.
