Commercial Building Flat Roof Care After a Severe Storm

A large storm just swept through the business district and you find yourself calling the landscaper to clean up the grounds, but don’t forget about the flat roof over your heads. Debris can clog any roof drain or drainage scuppers and cause damage to the roof or roof top units. Hire a professional, if need be, to clean them but don’t forget about the roof. You also might want to get an inspection on the condition of your commercial roof after a severe storm.

Clean Your Gutters after a Hail Storm

Residential snow removal

A hail or large wind storm just swept through the neighborhood and you find yourself raking up all the debris from the storm and filling up the garbage cans–but don’t forget to clean out those gutters too!

Debris can clog any downspout quickly and cause damage to your roof, fascia, or soffits. Making sure water flows freely through your gutter system helps prevent water from backing up and causing leaks or undermining the integrity of your roofing system. A word of caution: make sure to use ladder safety when cleaning gutters and consider hiring a professional if your gutters are difficult to reach or if you feel unsafe on a ladder.

Cleaning out gutters on a regular basis, and especially after a storm, can increase the life of your roof.

Select a roofing contractor

When selecting a roofing contractor to perform re-roofing residential or commercial projects the following are a few ideas to consider when choosing a contractor for this important work. We recommend getting the following information from the contractor before signing any contracts:

    • Attain a local address and phone number and visit their office if needed.
    • Ask for references or even go see related projects that they have done or are working on in your area.
    • Get their insurance certification (a sample to verify coverage should be sufficient and they should have general liability, auto and workman’s comp insurance).
    • Ask for an itemize estimate and review the contract
    • Review all warranties (included workmanship and roofing manufacturer warranties).

This is a short list but at least it will steer you in the right direction before you sign any agreements. One other note from SRC: we recommend that you partially pay for the work once it has started, usually the first day just not when materials are delivered or lieu of a deposit.
