Do You Know the Condition of Your Commercial Roof?
It’s often said that knowledge is power, and that’s certainly true when it comes to your commercial roof! If you don’t know the health or condition of your roof, it’s much more difficult to plan around it, whether you’re purchasing a building or running a business. This is why commercial roof inspections are highly valuable and critically important for anyone in commercial real estate, either as a business owner or a prospective buyer.
At Moser Roofing Solutions, we offer the most thorough commercial roof inspections in the Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic region. We cover every part of a roof’s construction, from the roof’s surface layer to the drainage system, and even the building’s interior. That’s because we’ve seen the importance of regular roof inspections for catching issues early, before they become more costly and dangerous. Here are some key considerations you should keep in mind when it comes to your roof.
Purchasing a Property? Inspect Before You Buy
Roof inspections are a critical early step before making any commercial real estate purchase, but also one that’s often overlooked. A commercial roof plays a major role—maybe one of the biggest roles—in the functionality and security of any commercial property. These buildings are designed to protect employees, inventory and products, equipment, and much more from moisture, water damage, and extreme temperatures. Without a properly functioning roof, a commercial building is much less effective in performing its essential purpose.
Your roof is also a significant portion of the cost of purchasing a commercial building. If you don’t know the status of a building’s roof, you won’t be able to effectively assess its value. This can lead to overpaying for a building with a roof that will need to be replaced sooner than expected.
Commercial roof inspections help both buyers and sellers of commercial properties better understand the overall value of the property they’re working with. Make sure to always schedule an inspection from a professional commercial roofer before making any purchasing decisions.
Regular Inspections Are Key to a Healthy Commercial Roof
Whether you’ve just purchased a commercial building, or if you’ve owned your property for a long time, commercial roof inspections are an essential part of maintaining your roof. The best time to repair commercial roofing issues is immediately, as leaving leaks, damage, deterioration, or other problems unaddressed will allow them to worsen and become more difficult and costly to fix. The earlier you identify and resolve roofing issues, the better.
Regular commercial roof inspections are the first line of defense against commercial roofing problems. Having a professional commercial roofer carefully inspect your roof once or twice a year ensures that any issues or damage from weather, wear, or aging will be noticed right away. This enables you to fix the issue quickly and avoid major (and more expensive) problems down the line.
Commercial Roof Maintenance Programs
One of the best ways to ensure your roof is inspected regularly and thoroughly by a commercial roofing expert is to sign up for a commercial roof maintenance program. These programs include many services that are essential to extending the service life of your commercial roof.
At Moser Roofing Solutions, our commercial roof maintenance program, the Roof Guardian, includes two annual roof inspections, images and a complete report of our findings, and our recommendations for your commercial roof. These inspections are an essential part of caring for your commercial roof and saving money for your business.
