The sun and scorching heat do your commercial roof no favors.

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.

Common Roof Maintenance Myths

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.

Safety on the Roof, for any trade!

Stone Roofing Company, Inc. ensures that Safety is the number one priority for its employees and clients. Rooftop safety is applicable for any trade where the worker will be working six (6’) feet or more above ground level. Working at heights can present fall hazards which could seriously injure a person, or cause death. By following these two simple steps, you will be able to identify if any employee working on your roof is working safely.

  • Ensure that extension ladders are properly set up with a 4:1 ratio. Every four (4’) feet the ladder goes up, it needs to be one (1’) foot from the wall. Also ensure that the ladder extends three (3”) feet past the roof line, and is secured at the top to prevent any displacement.
  • Where employees are working near an unprotected edge which does not have a parapet wall of at least twenty-four (24”) inches, ensure that the workers are using proper fall protection. Fall protection can be any of the following methods, or combination of guard rails, warning line system, safety monitor, fall restraint, or personal fall arrest system (PFAS).

At Stone Roofing Company, we pride ourselves in working safely and ensuring that we provide a safe work environment for clients. We practice safety daily, provide training to our employee’s, and ensure that we are in compliance with CAL/OSHA standards.

IS YOUR OLD ROOF COSTING YOU?

money

It might be hard to believe but it’s possible your roof is actually costing you money. As a roof gets older, and the longer it goes without maintenance, problems arise and efficiency decreases. Here are some ways to improve efficiency, save you money and help you decide if it’s time to repair or replace your old roof.

HOW IT COSTS YOU

If you’ve noticed an increase in utilities over time it could be an indicator your roof is not efficient anymore. In the summer, a darker color roof absorbs sunlight and could be taxing on your A/C functionality. In the winter, an older roof could be letting heat escape. Not only will it cost you in bills but it is likely shortening the lifetime of your HVAC unit as well which can be costly to replace or repair.

The cost will only go up if you don’t perform maintenance or repairs. Neglecting to make any changes can lead to a total replacement where originally only a simple repair was needed.

COOL ROOF

There is such thing as a cool roof! Using materials that reflect sunlight, lighter colors or coatings can help your roof keep cold air in and hot air out. It’s important to know your climate! Certain roofing materials are better suited for different temperatures, weather, and seasonal changes.

REPAIR OR REPLACE?

If you can visually tell your roof is damaged, curling, buckling, splitting, blistering, or has major debris on the roof deck this is an indicator of a roof in need of repair or replacement.

In general, if you’re questioning the state of your roof or gutters, the safest answer is to call! Basic maintenance, repairs or even a replacement roof is the cheapest and most efficient way to keep your roof healthy and your repair costs low.

Stone Roofing specializes in commercial roofing, equipped with experienced roofers who can help you determine the best method to preserve your roof. If you find any signs that indicate you need roof repair, roof maintenance or a complete replacement, call Stone Roofing.

Clean Up and Maintenance Tips for Your Commercial Roof this Spring

The winter months can be hard on all commercial roofs.   Spring has come and the inevitable clean up and maintenance. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Why spring cleanup and maintenance is important for your commercial roof

  • To extend the lifespan of your roof – just like an automobile or home, the better you take care of it, the longer it will last. Your roof is an investment in the future of your business and that’s how it should be treated.
  • To save money—catching small problems early is a lot less expensive than dealing with a major headache later. This will also allow you add any necessary roof repairs to your budget so you won’t be hit with surprise costs later.
  • To make your roof more attractive – even though it’s up high, people do notice your roof. If it’s dirty, has roofing materials hanging over the side or appears to be in disrepair, this reflects badly on your business as a whole.

Activities you should perform in the spring to protect your commercial roof

  • Check the gutters
  • Trim those trees
  • Clean the roof
  • Inspect for damage
  • Prevent future impairment
  • Look around inside
  • Only use professionals
  • Perform necessary repairs

Without a functioning, well-maintained roof, your business suffers. Your commercial roof is the first line of defense against the elements. If your roof fails, everything inside is at risk. You must take care of your roof with cleaning and maintenance as if your business depended on it…because it does.

Don’t wait for big problems to occur before you fix the small things.
