Keep your commercial and industrial roof in top shape year-round.
At Roofed Right, we have flat roofing experts available to you for commercial roof maintenance services. Since single-ply roofing systems, like PVC, are subject to wear and tear over time, it is important to have a maintenance plan to ensure that your roof is properly taken care of.

Establishing a solid maintenance plan can significantly extend the life of your roof. A typical PVC roof can last up to 20 years if it is properly managed. Our experts at Roofed Right offer detailed maintenance plans for your PVC roof along with preventative measures including:
Removal of debris and foreign materials like tree branches, abandoned equipment or parts, leaves and other debris.
Washing the roof with water and a diluted solution of water and a biodegradable cleaner.
We also offer flat roof waterproofing services so your roof can battle the conditions year-round. After a thorough inspection, Roofed Right contractors will determine the ideal waterproofing solution.
Commercial Roof Inspection
Roofed Right’s basic commercial roof maintenance services include debris removal and general cleaning, inspecting the membrane, edge metal and flashing components, repairing damaged areas like holes, tears or splits, and cleaning out the drains and gutter systems.
Roof Inspection Checklist:
Check PVC 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 suggest that you have your PVC roof maintained often to prevent any major issues by stopping them at their root. Additionally, we recommend having your roof inspected after any potentially damaging situations. Having work done on your roof like an HVAC repair, severe weather conditions or any other special circumstance all warrant having your roof inspected and maintained.
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.
