Commercial Roof Inspection
We provide a variety of roof maintenance services including general cleaning and debris removal, inspecting edge metal flashing components, cleaning drains and gutter systems, and repairing damaged areas, such as holes, rips, and split or separated roofing material components.
How to maintain an EPDM roof:
Check EPDM membrane for soft spots, separations, wrinkles, cuts or punctures, moisture spots, or any damage from roof traffic
Check edges and seams for shrinkage. 1-2% shrinkage in the membrane is normal.
Check key areas: cap/base flashings, edge metal, penetrations, ballast, adhesives/coatings, and the field of the roof
Check cap flashings for loose areas, deformed metal, cracking, and missing joint covers
Check edge metal for loose areas, corroded metal, missing sections, and open joints
Check base flashings for continuous adhesion, closed seams, and undamaged material
Check Penetrations for proper securement, adhesion, pitch pockets, and seal
Preventative Roof Maintenance
We recommend that you have your EDPM flat roof inspected 1-2 times a year depending on its conditions. In addition, you should also have your roof inspected and maintained after having work done on your roof like HVAC repair/maintenance, and also every time the membrane is exposed to severe weather like hail, heavy rain, or strong winds.
Keep the roof clean and free of debris.
Keep drainage systems clear and functional.
Train maintenance personnel in the dos and don'ts of single plies.
Restrict roof access to authorized personnel only.
Limit penetration of the roof system for later equipment installation.
