The best way to extend the life of your single-ply rubber roof is to have it regularly cleaned and maintained. A traditional Roofed Right rubber roof, TPO or EPDM, lasts around 50 years, but without proper inspections and maintenance, it may not hold for its entire lifespan. That is why we offer a detailed maintenance plan for your TPO roof. Our experts also provide preventative maintenance services like:
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 premium flat roof waterproofing services to ensure that your roof is properly functioning year-round despite the conditions. Our experts can examine your TPO roof and determine the best solution for your facility.
Commercial Roof Inspection
Our industrial and commercial rubber roof maintenance services include general cleaning and debris removal, cleaning drains and gutter systems, inspecting edge metal and flashing components and repairing damaged areas, such as holes, rips and split or separated roofing material components.
Roof Inspection Checklist:
Check TPO 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 including 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
Our roofing contractors recommend you have your TPO roof maintained regularly to ensure there are no major issues. Additionally, we suggest having it inspected for damage after having any work done on your roof like HVAC repair/maintenance or after severe weather conditions such as strong winds, heavy rain or hail.
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.
