Be Prepared for Storms
Inspect your Roof
If you have a commercial roof you should have it inspected twice a year, a licensed professional should inspect the rooftop for wind and structural damage. A secure structure creates a barrier from water, minimizing potential mold and saturation concerns. Have a roofer or maintenance worker perform a thorough assessment, checking for malformed or harmed shingles and missing flashing.. Fix any identified problems.
Clean the Gutters
Removing water from the building is essential to reducing roof damage. Gutters and a proper drainage system move the excess buildup away to retention ponds and sewage systems; however, leaves and debris can clog them up, preventing the necessary movement. In a severe storm, this hazard allows backups that threaten the roof's integrity. Too much water could weigh down the top, causing a break.
Those Big Trees may need trimming
Trim trees often to keep them away from the building. If a tree or branch falls, landing on the roofing, a hole is could be created. Your entire facility is then exposed to nature. Not only would you require a roof repair, but you would require the assistance of a water restoration company. As the rain pours inside, it permeates into your materials, allowing fungus and bacteria to grow.
