Three Steps To Preparing Your Commercial Roof For Winter

Winter is coming, and it’s important to make sure that your commercial roof is prepared for everything that entails. With winter, there is the threat of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures that can act as potential threats to your roof. It is important that you learn what these threats are and the best way to handle them. That’s why at Andy’s roofing we’re teaching you the best three ways to prepare your commercial roof for winter.

Key Takeaways

Here are three things Stanton Insurance wants you to do if you are in a car accident:

  1. Call the police. If no one needs medical attention proceed to number two. Cars and other property can be replaced, people can not. 
  2. Make sure to get the other parties information, name, address, phone number and insurance information. Take a photo of their insurance card.
  3. Contact your insurance agent with the details and police report to begin filing a claim.

Snow Removal Plan

If you live somewhere that gets constant snow, it’s imperative you make a snow removal plan for your commercial roof. It is best to make these plans beforehand, so you’re not buried underneath all the snow. Snow buildup can cause severe issues with both the roof and the building, and if the roof is improperly cleared it could potentially damage your roof. One of the steps of your plan should include installing wind baffles that protect your ventilation and drainage from the snow. A snow removal plan is the first step you can take to ensure that your roof stays clear of damages over winter.  

Clean the roof

It is important that you clean your commercial roof before winter arrives. You can do this yourself, or you could hire a professional ensuring the cleaning is done correctly. A clean roof is important in preventing rotting, mold, moss, and other problems that may develop if neglected. For this to be done successfully, leaves, sticks, and potential animal infestations (including nesting materials and food) will need to be removed. Once these objects are removed and your roof is clean, the roof inspector can begin their inspection. 

Roof Inspection

Once your roof is cleaned, it is time for a roof inspection. During this process, the roof inspector will check over your roof looking for any damages including gaps, tears, or cracks that often occur. Once the issues have been located, it is important to begin repairs on them. Repairing small issues before they become serious problems over the winter is important due to  freezing, refreezing ice, heavy snowfall, and high winds which can be seriously damaging. It will save you money to fix these small issues rather than having to pay for the expensive repairs needed after heavy damage.
