<p>If your building is located in a climate with extremely harsh weather, or severe temperature swings, or chemicals are in the air, you should consider inspecting more often.

<p>Let&rsquo;s look more closely at the roof inspection process and see how you can ensure your inspections are effective and successful. One important thing to remember is to follow a routine and a plan during each inspection.</p>
<p>Don&rsquo;t just walk around without a plan and a purpose; know before you get on the roof what you will look for, and where and when you will look for it.</p>
<p>The following areas should be inspected every time you are on your roof.</p>

    <li>Gutters, scuppers, and drains</li>

    <li>Search for any defects</li>
</ul>

<p>The order doesn&rsquo;t matter as long as it stays consistent from one inspection to the next.

Two Main Components of a Successful Commercial Roof Maintenance Plan

There are two very simple keys to a good commercial roof maintenance plan that will almost guarantee its success: regular and frequent roof inspections and regular repairs made in response to those inspections.

These are the two easiest, simplest, and most obvious methods to extend the life of your roof through maintenance, and yet they are also the most ignored by building owners.

How regular should your inspections be? We recommend no fewer than two inspections per year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Two inspections in a year should allow you to catch any damage to your roof before it grows into major problems. However, you need to use your best judgment.

You should also perform special inspections of your roof after all major storms, any construction on or above the roof, installation of any new equipment, and any fire, vandalism, or other known damage.

Don’t make the mistake that so many other building owners and facility managers are making; inspect and repair your roof regularly, rather than waiting and making huge repairs later. In the long run, it will almost undoubtedly save you money.
