Portland Commercial Roof Maintenance

Commercial property owners have a bigger obligation than homeowners to ensure the roof over their building is in safe condition. While homeowners have the same needs, commercial properties affect the health and well-being of people other than your family.

The International Building Code (IBC) sets safety standards for commercial buildings, requiring roofs that protect the building. This begins with proper and safe roof installation. But it continues with regular inspections, maintenance and repairs when needed..

The best way to extend the life of your roof, protect your investment, and the people in it is to have a comprehensive roof maintenance plan for your commercial property.

Create a Commercial Roofing Maintenance Plan

Success in every aspect of a business hinges on proper planning. So, it holds true for commercial building roof maintenance. Document the history of the work done on your roof, including inspections and repairs.

Prolong the life of your roof by catching potential issues early. You can do so by having a minimum of one annual roof inspection performed.

Our commercial roof maintenance service includes:

  • Cleaning debris from roof gutters and drains
  • Moss removal and treatment
  • Roof inspection flat or pitched (all types), including flashings, with repair schedule if needed
  • Seal all roof penetrations as needed using a selection of product options
  • Silicone roof restoration coating (a potential alternative to roof replacement)
  • Repair nail pops, seem separations, tears, punctures and secure loose shingles or replace as needed

While this is all best left to a professional roof inspector, you can look for warning signs on a regular basis on your own. Are there water stains on the ceiling? There could be a roof leak, and mold growth as a result.

A well-maintained roof can last many more years than if you only react to major issues as they happen. Develop a maintenance plan, have regular inspections, including after major weather events, repair issues early, and you are more likely to postpone the major expense of replacing a commercial roof.

If you notice any issues with your commercial roof, or you need your roof inspected to determine if repairs are needed, give us a call at (503) 635-8706 and we will be happy to help.
