If you own a commercial building, you probably spend a lot of time thinking about curb appeal—but how much time have you spent up on the roof? Inspecting the interlocking parts that protect your property from the damaging effects of water is a vital step toward ensuring your business is ready for winter. It can also save you thousands of dollars and weeks’ worth of lost production if you can catch a small problem before it causes major damage.
Fall is the perfect time to get on your roof and take inventory of your gutters and downspouts. The weather is still nice, you can evaluate any damage from summer storms and prepare for brutal winters. When you’re ready to conduct a drainage system inspection, here are a few things that should have your full attention:
Drainage systems are designed to help water flow away from your building during a heavy spring rain and divert melting snow in the winter, reducing the risk of water backing up onto the roof. Taking the time to fully inspect your roof before the winter months will help you detect and repair small problems so they don’t lead to major damage.
