Flat Roof Maintenance

If you own a commercial building, it’s likely that you have a flat roof. Flat Roofs are prone to getting pools of water on them which leads to leaks. To avoid major leaks or your roof caving in, you will need to have regular inspections on your roof. A roofing company should inspect your roof every few months but there are some things you can do to ensure that your roof is safe and working properly.

Debris

If there is a wind or rain storm you should go check on your roof the next day (if it is safe). Remove any tree branches or piles of leaves that might be up there. Heaps of debris can cause water to pool up and not drain properly or mold to grow. 

Trees

A great way to prevent debris build-up is to trim overhanging trees. This will make it harder for branches to land on your flat roof. Ask a professional to trim your trees to prevent harm to your roof and yourself. 

Drainage

Regular check ups on your roof’s drainage is a necessity. Make sure that all the water is draining in the right spots and no water is pooling up. If there is a problem with the drainage then call Home Re-Nu right away! We can help fix the problem and level out your roof.

The more you take can of your roof, the longer it will last. Don’t pay to have your roof replaced every couple of years, check up on it and get it inspected regularly. Home Re-Nu is happy to do flat roof inspections. Give us a call at 618-964-9100 or contact us to get your flat roof inspected.
