Roofs are one of the most important features to keep in good condition on a building. It’s often the first thing one notices when assessing a building’s quality, and a good roof can save you many headaches throughout your ownership of the property. The quality and condition of your roof will also have an effect on your insurance rates.
There are a number of things you can do to prevent damage to your roof, including regular maintenance and inspection, clearing overhanging tree branches, clearing gutters and more. Some things you should also be on the lookout for are:
- Water stains on the ceiling
- Signs of mold or mildew
- Wood damage caused by insects
A good roof will last 20 or more years, but it has to be maintained properly. See the infographic below for a multitude of other things to watch out for in your commercial roof.
