Commercial Roof Inspection help business owners assess the condition of their roofs. These audits help ensure that roofs are correctly maintained and that needed repairs are conducted to avoid risks and potential property damage. Let’s review some of the highlights of Commercial Roof Inspections:

  • What do Commercial Roof Inspections typically include?
  • Why are these inspections necessary to businesses?
  • How does Fielda increase the speed and efficiency of these Commercial Roof Inspections?

What do inspections cover: During typical roof inspections, inspectors examine several parts of the roofing structure, such as the roofing surface, vents, flashing, gutters, downspouts, and drainpipes. Inspectors conduct simple visual examinations or use more advanced inspection methods, including non-destructive testing such as thermography. Using a detailed checklist to document evidence of decay, wear and tear, ponding, clogging, or debris. Surveyors also examine components like the parapet wall termination bars and the roofing edges. 

Why are these inspections significant: Roofs are constantly exposed to changing weather conditions; heat, humidity, extreme cold, snow, and rainfall. They are also at risk from debris such as tree branches and accumulated dust or sand. Moisture often gets within the roof, causing cracks, and temperature changes cause expansion and contraction, leading to damage over a period. Routine commercial roof inspections help businesses ensure that their roofing is secure and up to code. They also help property owners conduct timely repairs and maintenance to avoid more expensive overhauls in the future. These detailed inspections flag surface-related or structural issues and identify necessary corrective measures.
