The Importance of Preventative Maintenance

Extend the life expectancy of your roof by practicing regular preventative maintenance procedures.

Unintended Consequences

All it takes is standing moisture and Texas leaves to form a biodegraded heavy mass that clogs drains, blocks scuppers, and invites mold, fungi, and mildew. If not promptly removed, leaves and debris can lead to backed-up water, which increases the live load on the roof deck. Especially in commercial or flat roofs. Standing water, just 1-inch deep, adds five pounds per-square-foot load on the roofing system. Over time, standing water can reduce flexibility and overall length of life. 

In commercial or flat roofs, ponding becomes critical when pooling water freezes and expands, forcing its way into tiny cracks or under flashings. Additional ice weight can cause structural damage and expensive repairs, or – in extreme cases – even roof collapse.

Preventative Maintenance

When was the last time you had a roofing professional perform regular maintenance on your Residential, Multi-Family, or Commercial roof? Your roof is exposed to countless potential problems caused by exposure to weather, the Texas sun, ice, hail, debris, faulty repairs, rooftop traffic, poor workmanship, and much more. Problems with your roof can lead to premature deterioration and shorten roof life if they’re not caught early. 

Regular roof maintenance gives you the opportunity to inspect each area of your roof, review the condition of the materials and components that make up your roof, and notice any changes that may have occurred since the last scheduled maintenance. Your roof gives telltale signs of what’s working and what’s not. Contact Accurate Roofing Systems today for a free 42 point Inspection within 24 hours.

Be sure to look for signs of wear and target those areas for repair. Checkout our blog 8 Warning Signs: You Need A New Roof for a list of trouble areas that are most common in Texas.
