Read below to see what our experts at Aspen Contracting recommend!
Watch for Signs of Damage
When possible, track the changing appearance of the roof. It may be smart to keep a journal or a separate document on your computer to log when you are noticing changes. Details that may be worth noting are: areas of poor drainage, areas of shingle discoloration, or areas of dipping/swelling. Doing a quarterly assessment of your roofing system will help to catch problems early on before they become serious issues.
Clean Your Gutters/Drainage Systems
Cleaning your drainage system is massively important to prevent mold or leaks. If gutters or drains are not cleared of plant debris (such as dead leaves), then you will see areas of standing water or overflowing drains, which can lead to leaks in the interior of your building. The best time to clear your drainage system is early winter and early summer to clear the buildup of dead leaves, pollen, and other plant material.
Keep Your Warranty Handy
It’s a good idea to have your roofs warranty printed and kept in a safe place for easy access. Knowing the ins and outs of your warranty is very important for when it comes time to address an area of concern. Aspen’s Ironclad Lifetime Warranty is the best in the industry and answers all of our customers questions and concerns.
Have your Commercial Roof Inspected
Having your roofing system inspected after a major weather event is very important to catch potential issues. A hail storm can significantly degrade roofing systems, regardless of if they are a flat or shingled.
