LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Highland Commercial Roofing, a premiere Southwest commercial roofing company, wants to help business owners identify and address common trouble spots with their roof to stop problems before they start and repair them before it is too late.
"The roof is a commercial building's first line of defense from natural hazards. It is also the most vulnerable part of your building," said Rick Cunningham, president of Highland Commercial Roofing. "The best way to avoid roof-related problems is through regular care and maintenance. Inspections should be scheduled every six months."
Highland Commercial Roofing offers these tips to help area businesses detect and prevent water damage:
- Inspect your roof for damage after a severe storm.
- Remove any loose objects and debris. A clean roof eliminates leaves and other items. from accumulations on the roof and clogging drains and gutters.
- Check gutters and downspouts for debris that will inhibit proper drainage.
- Bubbles on the roof may be a sign of trapped moisture under the cover.
- Worn, cracking seams can allow water to enter below the cover.
- Standing water or prolonged ponding of water can lead to premature aging and deterioration.
- Check skylights for securement and cracking around the edges.
"A properly maintained roof is necessary to protect your building and the business conducted within it," said Cunningham. "Remember, a little maintenance can result in a lot of savings, especially when compared to the cost of damage from a small, undetected leak or catastrophic roof failure."
