The roof of a commercial building provides the first line of defense against the elements. Having a sturdy roof for your building depends on a number of factors like design, materials, and quality of installation.
That’s why Kerrigan Roofing and Restoration uses only top-notch materials and trained roofers for roofing installations. We are the leading expert when it comes to residential and commercial roofing in Columbus, Ohio. We know that the best way to enjoy your commercial roof is to practice preventive maintenance.
Understanding preventive maintenance
The first step is learning how to recognize the signs of a failing roof. Some signs may be apparent even from inside the building, like water stains on the ceiling or molds on the walls. Water stains may indicate a roof leak and, if left unchecked, can result in further damage.
Other signs include tears in the roof cover or cracking seams that will allow moisture to seep in below the roof cover. If you notice any of these, you need to call for roof inspection immediately.
This includes thorough checks to identify and address the damaged areas on the roof before it’s too late. It is important to have our experts get your roof checked out at least twice a year. During the procedure, we will examine the following:
- Drains and downspouts to ensure there are no clogs that can inhibit proper drainage.
- Rooftop vents and equipment to ensure that they are well sealed.
- Flashings and penetrations to ensure that there are no gaps or tears.
At the end of the inspection, we will provide a full report on our findings. If there are any signs of damage to the roof, we will draw up a plan and recommend solutions. After all, well-maintained roofing in Columbus, Ohio will not only protect their building, but also the business proceedings conducted within.
Aside from roofing, we also offer other services such as window, siding, and gutter installation. Give Kerrigan Roofing and Restoration a call today at (614) 373 2519 for a FREE estimate on your next commercial project.
