Commercial roofs, like all other parts of your commercial building, require regular maintenance and inspection in order to operate at their fullest potential. In fact, in most circumstances having a regular maintenance schedule for your commercial roofing structures will prevent unnecessary repairs and problems. 

However, every season of the year will require different types of protection and preventative maintenance structures, so, understandably, further information should be provided on the expectations and needs of the roof based on the season. 

For the summer season, you must treat the task similar to spring maintenance, which, if performed at that time, severely lessens the burden required in the summer months. However, there are still some important steps to be taken, including:

Perform Summer Cleaning on Your Commercial Roof

Regular cleaning of your roof will prevent the unnecessary burden of debris and dirt. Therefore, you should clean out the eavestroughs and sweep off your commercial roofing system during the summer. During this cleaning period, you should perform a preliminary inspection for changes or damage that may have occurred during the winter and spring months. 

Other steps that can be taken for the protection of your commercial roof include spraying it down to get the long-stuck grime off, as well as looking carefully from the inside of your building to see if you can detect any leaks that may have cropped up during the winter or spring months.

Finally, consider inspecting and replacing the “jewellery” of your commercial roof. This means any of the troughs that have been damaged, as well as railings, troughs, and other areas that are not directly part of the roofing system, but absolutely contribute to the overall effectiveness.   

Any changes that you note should be investigated and, if valid, itemized so that you can:

Have Your Commercial Roof Inspected by a Professional

Just like in the spring and winter months, having your commercial roof inspected in the summer will be a great boon to its longevity and performance. Although, it is important to note there is no reason to have your roof inspected three or four times a year. Indeed, it is much better to have your roof inspected only once or twice a year as this will be cost-effective and will still effectively monitor any changes your commercial roofing system may experience.

Getting roof repairs before summer follows much the same rhetoric as other home repairs, such as furnace maintenance or painting activities. This means that there is even more credence to the popularity of spring cleaning as it really requires a holistic approach to be effective. 

However, roof repairs in Calgary are what is being discussed, and it is relevant to explain the rationale behind performing them in springtime, before summer. Other than the obvious benefit of lumping roof repairs in with your other seasonal chores and tasks, there is a multitude of great reasons for springtime, including:

Avoid the Summer Rush of Roof Repairs

Summer is the ideal time for roof repairs in Calgary because of the hot weather. As an example, shingles need to dry and adhere to each other, which the hot summer sun helps. This will ensure they provide an optimal barrier for rainy periods and the snowy winter months. However, once spring in Calgary has reached a certain time, it is unlikely that we will continue to see rain or snow. 

Therefore, April or May are also great spring months to perform roof repairs, however, with this added benefit. You will avoid the rush of roof repairs. In general, roofing companies in Calgary will attempt to book their work for summer for the reasons described above, but if you get a jump on the booking and work contract you will be able to avoid all of the scheduling conflicts that crop up in summer. 

This means that while everyone else is waiting to get their roof repairs, you can spend your summer soaking up the sun and vacationing in style, rather than waiting for the roof repair person to finish their work.

Beat the Heat with Spring Roof Repairs

Roof technology continues to evolve alongside all of our modern comforts, and one of the ways it has evolved is its heat absorption. When conducting roof repairs in Calgary, or roof replacements, there is a good chance that you will be able to install less heat-absorptive materials which will reduce the amount of heat that gets pulled into your home. 

Not only will this provide you a much more comfortable living situation (especially in these times where we are spending so much time inside) but it will also typically combine with the newness of said materials, meaning your roof will be even more durable and resilient to Mother Nature’s temperament. 

So, with the knowledge of the benefits currently proffered to you, there should be no reason for you not to consider getting roof repairs in the spring, before summer’s warm and wonderful months come upon us.
