WHY SHOULD YOU GET A PROFESSIONAL COMMERCIAL ROOF INSPECTION?

Most owners assume their commercial roof is well made, properly installed, and can withstand Mother Nature’s wrath. In reality, commercial roofs can be vulnerable. A commercial roof that is flawed in any manner has the potential to put your business in harm’s way. Furthermore, commercial roof damage can result in costly repairs or even a full roof replacement that decimates your budget. The solution is to be proactive with an annual professional roof inspection.

  • PEACE OF MIND
    • Think about how you will feel after having a thorough roof inspection performed by a true professional. You will know if there is anything wrong with your roof, and if there is, you will know precisely what sort of repair project is necessary.

If you need your commercial roof inspected, repaired, or replaced, contact Stone Roofing Co., Inc. today for a free commercial roofing estimate.  Stone Roofing is a local full service commercial roofing company that has been providing professional for over 80 years.

Summer Heat and Commercial Roofs

Summer is arriving and it brings extreme heat that can damage your commercial roof. Most commercial roofs are hit hard by summer heat waves and if you are not prepared, it could cause serious damage.

Full roof inspections internally and externally will help you prepare for the hot summer heat. Typically, roof exposure over a period can weaken your roof system and its ability to serve as a barrier.

Working with and experienced roof contractor will help identify issues listed below:

  • Cracks, blisters, or punctures in the roof membrane
  • Discolored or water-stained walls and ceilings
  • Cracks in walls and parapets
  • Raised or deteriorated areas on the walls below the roof deck
  • Nails or screws coming through the membrane
  • Loose, damaged, or buckled flashing
  • Damaged or missing caulking along masonry panel joints
  • Gaps in caulking around any units on the roof (chimney or HVAC)
  • Bald or bare spots where UV reflective granules are missing

Regular inspections before the summer will allow you to identify any of these problems before the heat arrives. You have time to get damages repaired to make sure that your roof will be able to withstand summer heat. Inspection and regular maintenance is also the best way to extend the life of your commercial roofing, so you get the most from your investment. Be sure to work with a qualified and experienced roofing contractor to ensure all potential problems are identified and fixed correctly.

Call us today to schedule an inspection and we will get your commercial roof summer-ready before it is too late.

 Winter and damp weather can damage your commercial roof and roof damage can be even worse if there are already existing roof issues like cracks or ponding water present. Roof repairs need to be addressed immediately to avoid further damage and to avoid a costly replacement after rain.

Costa Mesa Roof Repairs

Stone Roofing – Spotlight On Commercial Roofing

Metro Pointe Repair

(Before) Pipe Penetration Lacks Flashing

(After) Drains Receive New TPO Membrane

(After) Pipe Penetration Receives New ChemCurb as a Permanent Repair

Project Description

In 2019, Stone Roofing had the opportunity to make roofing repairs for the DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse located in the Metro Pointe shopping center in Costa Mesa. The majority of the roof is a colored built up membrane, however a small section of TPO Membrane was also found. The main focus of this job was to replace the deteriorated drainage area with brand new white TPO, in addition to scanning and making repairs as needed across the rest of the built up roof. Miscellaneous permanent repairs included sealing exposed pipe penetrations and sealing deteriorated membrane on the walls. The entire roof was also professionally cleared of all debris and trash.
Stone Roofing makes it a priority to complete the customer’s requests accurately and in a timely manner, all without disrupting typical business, as was demonstrated on this job.

LEARN HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS IN CASE OF AN EARTHQUAKE

After the recent earthquakes, many business owners are concerned about how past or future tremors could affect the stability of their commercial roofs. Now is the perfect opportunity to examine the roof of your business to assess its current condition and ability to stand up against the elements.

To ensure that your business can stand up to the effects of an earthquake, prepare for one before it occurs. Use the earthquake safety tips from the experts at Stone Roofing Co., Inc. to help protect your business and your employees from harm.

It always pays to be prepared – Earthquake Tips

Before an Earthquake – Be Prepared

  • Check and reduce hazards in your place of business
  • Check building structure and roof field
  • Keep disaster supplies on hand
  • Become earthquake educated
  • Keep disaster supplies on hand for employees
  • Develop an emergency communications plan

During an Earthquake – Be Safe

If indoors

  • Drop to the ground and take cover by getting under a sturdy table or other piece of furniture. Hold on until the shaking stops. If there isn’t a table or desk near you, cover your face and head with your arms and crouch in an inside corner of the building.
  • Stay away from glass windows, outside doors and walls or anything that could fall such as lighting fixtures or book shelves.
  • Use a doorway for shelter only if it is in close proximity to you and you know it is a strongly supporting, load-bearing doorway.
  • Stay inside until the shaking stops and it is safe to go outside.
  • Be aware that electricity may go out and sprinkler systems or fire alarms may turn on.
  • Do not use elevators.

If outdoors

  • Stay there.
  • Move away from buildings, streetlights and utility wires. Most earthquake-related casualties result from collapsing walls, flying glass and falling objects.
  • If trapped under debris
  • Do not light a match.
  • Stay still; do not move about or kick up dust.
  • Cover your mouth with a handkerchief or piece of clothing
  • Tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can locate you. Use a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause you to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.
  • Once in an open space, stay there until the shaking stops.

If trapped under debris

  • Do not light a match.
  • Stay still; do not move about or kick up dust.
  • Cover your mouth with a handkerchief or piece of clothing
  • Tap on a pipe or wall so rescuers can locate you. Use a whistle if one is available. Shout only as a last resort. Shouting can cause you to inhale dangerous amounts of dust.

After an Earthquake – Be Smart

  • Use a cell phone or landline telephone only for emergency calls.
  • Help injured or trapped persons. Give first aid where appropriate, but do not move seriously injured persons unless they are in immediate danger of further injury.
  • Check for gas leaks. If you smell gas or hear blowing or hissing noise, open a window and leave immediately. Turn off the gas at the outside main valve if possible, move away from the building and call the gas company for assistance.
  • Look for electrical system damage. If you see sparks or broken or frayed wires, or if you smell hot insulation, turn off the electricity at the main fuse box or circuit breaker. If you have to step in water to get to the fuse box or circuit breaker, call and electrician for assistance.
  • Check for sewer and water line damage. If you suspect sewage line damage, avoid using the toilets and call a plumber. If water pipes are damaged, contact the water company and do not use water from the tap.
  • Listen to a battery-powered radio or television for the latest emergency information.

Don’t Forget to Add Roof to the Spring Cleaning List!

While it is true that many people have a spring cleaning checklist, these are often for inside your building or property.  But do not forget to include your commercial roof to that list!

Your building’s roof is probably one of the hardest working aspects of your commercial building overall. It ensures exposure to all manner of weather and temperatures, which means it’s that much more important to stay current with yearly maintenance.

Now that we’re officially into spring and heading toward summer, it’s a good time to think about preventive maintenance as a means to prepare your roof for next winter. Implementing a roofing “preventative maintenance program” is key to preserving and extending the life of your current roof system. We recommend periodic inspections—they can be done quarterly, semi-annually (fall and spring are the best time for this), or annually.

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
  • Perform necessary repairs
  • Get preventive maintenance with a professional roof contractor
