Discovering that your roof is leaking or that your windshield wipers don’t work in a heavy downpour is no fun! Here are five ways you can prepare now for the rains to come:
Clean and repair gutters, downspouts and roofs – Clogged rain gutters can cause rainwater to back up and damage your roof.
Keep storm drains clear in your area – Pick up trash you see around your business/community.
Maintain your car – Make sure your windshield wipers are in good working condition and tire treads are at the proper depth.
Harvest the rain – Purchase a rain barrel and get it set up before the rains begin. It’s time to recognize that rainwater is a resource!
Sign up for Preventative Roof Maintenance – Having preventative maintenance keeps your roof in top shape, which means less maintenance or emergency work in the long run
It is wise to be prepared for any rain that may come our way. Getting ready now will help to keep your property safe now and in the future. Put these five tips into practice, and you’ll be ready when those raindrops start to fall.

October is the perfect time to schedule a yearly roof inspection if you have not already!
An annual roof inspection is one of the items many property owners put off for later when it is an item that should be at the top of your priority list every year. If it’s been a while since your last roof inspection or you never had one, now is the perfect time to contact a professional roofing company. A roof inspection will identify any potential concerns for repairs or a roof replacement, giving you ample time to prepare and plan for the updates financially.
If you’ve been putting it off, here are three reasons why this fall is the perfect time to schedule a roof inspection.
- Summer can be rough on a roof
- All commercial roofs need to be prepared for winter weather
- Fall weather offers better accessibility
If you are ready to schedule a roof inspection today, contact Stone Roofing Co., Inc. today. We service Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego Counties. Licensed in California and Arizona.
Your investment into your commercial building is far too precious to undermine by not keeping up with commercial roofing maintenance and repairs. An ideal way to make sure you don’t miss something is to think of each new season of the year as an opportunity to perform necessary and advisable service to your roof. Here are the things to do each season of the year:
Fall – If you have trees nearby that are taller than your building, be sure to keep up with removing fallen leaves throughout the season. You definitely don’t want those to remain over the winter as they’ll soak up moisture and put added strain on the commercial roofing. Be sure to inspect the drains as well to make sure they haven’t been clogged by debris.
Winter – Cold temperatures are hard on commercial roofing, particularly if you have existing problems. Be sure to take care of any membrane splits or separations, as well as any other defects before winter snow and cold makes them worse to the point of major leaking. Have the membrane inspected, because if it is reaching the end of its lifespan or has multiple patches, the winter conditions aren’t going to be kind to it. Consider applying roof coating protection, which may need to be done before the temperatures get too low to use the product
Spring – As you do at home, think of spring as the time for spring cleaning at your business. It is a period for getting your property in top condition by eliminating what has happened during the winter. Look for areas of a flat roof where the membrane has become damaged. Clean off debris that will interfere with the drainage of spring rains.
Summer – Summer heat can be hard on commercial roofing, so performing an inspection is important. It is also important to watch for storm damage that may have occurred and that should be repaired as quickly as possible.
Stone Roofing can inspect your building throughout the year and make recommendations for maintenance and repair that can help your commercial roofing survive whatever Mother Nature has cooked up for the next season.

As much as we love the summer sun here in California, it can cause problems for a commercial roof.
It is not uncommon for the sun’s heat to cause cracks, bumps, and other signs of damage to your roof’s surface. Commercial roofs tend to be tougher, but the sun still takes its toll on even the toughest of materials.
Often times these things remain unnoticed until you have a rainy day and start seeing leaks in the roof. Leaks can cause all kinds of unheard of damages to your business and your products. They are not only inconvenient but can also lead to being very expensive. This is where preventative maintenance comes into play. Having regularly scheduled roof inspections can help prevent the cause and effects of having heat damage on your roof. With an inspection, you will be made aware of trouble spots and will be able to take a proactive approach to addressing the situation before it becomes a bigger problem.
By taking some preventative measures and hiring professional roofers, you and your roof will be able to stand the best chance you can against the sizzling summer heat.
Regular commercial roof maintenance is vital to your commercial roof, as it ensures that your roof will perform correctly throughout the year. Unfortunately, several widespread myths about the importance of commercial roof maintenance have made some property owners doubt the importance of investing in this service.
Myth #1 Roof Warranty Covers Everything
Avoiding roof maintenance because you think your warranty has you covered in the event of damage is a big mistake. Most roofing warranties cover the roofing material, tiles, and shingles, but not the underlayment.
Myth #2 Having a Warranty Means You Don’t Need Maintenance
Remember: your roof’s warranty covers the things out of your control, such as manufacturer defects or workmanship errors. It does not cover regular wear and tear. So, even if you have a strong warranty on your roofing system, you still need to invest in regular maintenance.
Myth #3 Preventative Roof Maintenance Is Unnecessary
Preventative roof maintenance is better than reactive maintenance. Having preventative maintenance keeps your roof in top shape, which means less maintenance work in the long run.
