Spring To Do list
Frigid temps may still be tormenting parts of the country, but the first official day of spring is this week. Businesses lucky enough not to be buried under layers of ice and snow: it’s time to make plans to assess the condition of your roof.
Spring and fall are the two best times of year to inspect your commercial roof. When you head to the top of your building, pay special attention to the following:
How does your roof surface look? Are there any edges flipping up instead of laying flat? Do you see any “bubbling”––lumps or other deformities? If you see anything that looks even a little suspicious, it’s probably time to call a pro who can give you an expert opinion on what needs repair.
It’s time to make sure your gutters are clean and clear so that all of the spring rain has a clear path off of your roof. Winters are hard on gutters: bone-chilling cold makes maintaining them a difficult or even impossible chore, and debris is often even frozen into place.
Pipes, chimneys, and other openings
Pay extra attention to the areas that surround key openings in your roof. These spots can be more prone to wear and tear.
