How to Keep Your Commercial Roof Spring-Friendly

If you are planning to schedule your commercial roofing maintenance and repairs, there is no better to do it than spring. Storms, rainfall, hail, or snow from the previous season may have caused some damage to your roof. To keep everything in check, you may need to perform simple roof maintenance tasks like trimming trees, cleaning gutters, and scheduling a professional inspection to keep your roof spring-friendly.

  1. Wash the Rooftop Surface
    Washing the rooftop surface will help prevent mold infestation caused by dirt accumulation. Simply use cleaning solutions and a commercial pressure washer to keep the surface sparkling clean.
  1. Clean Your Gutters
    Your gutters may be blocked by mold, tree limbs, and leaves that prevent water from reaching the drains. This can lead to overflows and structural damage of your commercial roofs. As you prepare for Sprint, clean the gutters and make the flow streamline. Hiring a professional roof expert can help to access and clean areas of the gutters that you cannot reach. They will also check your gutters for cracks, rusts, or loose parts that need fixing.
  1. Conduct a Moisture Survey
    Conducting a moisture survey with an infrared scan will help see what is happening under the roof membrane. The purpose of the survey is to detect changes in the roof’s materials due to heat retention, presence of water, or loss of heat through insulation. Since such problems are not visible with naked eyes, conducting a moisture survey at least once in five years is necessary.
  1. Repair Leaks
    Your roof may have suffered wear and tear from the harsh winter weather. This could have resulted in leaking holes that bring water inside your commercial property. If not properly handled, such roof leaks could lead to further damage and expensive repairs. A professional roofing contractor will check roof membrane, downspouts, vents edges, caulking, and other roofing areas that may require leak repair.
  1. Trim Trees
    Any overhanging branches or that touch the roof can cause damage by creating shaded and damp areas that encourage mold growth. Make sure you trip nearby trees on a regular basis to keep the roof clear.
  1. Inspect the Roof After Bad Weather
    Severe weather like snow, hail, high winds, and torrential rainfalls can loosen your roof shingles or cause them to crack. Take time to inspect the roof after extreme weather conditions to identify any signs of damage and plan for any necessary repairs. Ice and snow build-up can damage the roof shingles. An inspection of the roof will help you replace the worn-out, damaged, broken, or curled shingles.
  1. Schedule an Inspection

How to Choose the Right Commercial Roofing Company

How to Choose the Right Commercial Roofing Company

March 2021 by Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows


In every building, the roof is among the most important components. Apart from protecting against the outside elements, the roof also provides significant structural support. Given the importance of having a good room, you should work with the right commercial roofing company to get everything in order. A professional commercial roofing contractor will always come in handy when you are repairing a small leak, installing a new roof, or replacing a damaged roof. But, how do you choose the right roofing professional?

  1. Choose a Local Company.
    Before considering only the big names you have heard in the industry, research all the available commercial roofing companies in your area. Examine their services and choose a company that meets your roofing needs and budget. Working with a local roofing company is easier as they can always visit you whenever you need their services.
  2. Get Recommendation.
    The easiest way to get a roofing professional is to ask for recommendations from families and friends. The good thing is that you will be working with a tried-and-tested professional, and you will likely land a bigger discount.
  3. Check Credentials.
    Before hiring a roofing expert, make sure you conduct a background check to determine whether they are licenses and insured. The last thing you would want to do is work with an unlicensed contractor. So, check for their license, certification, and insurance to ensure your company is protected from any damage, and that your house is in good hands.
  4. Focus on More than Just the Cost.
    Do not be so much concerned about your budget that you forget to check other factors that influence the quality of work delivered. After the contractor falls under your budget, go further to check their previous projects and compare their work with other contractors in the area.
  5. Read Reviews.
    Since we are living in the digital age, the online space is a bank of information. Check for online reviews on the available roofing contractors in your area. Check how other people have rated them in terms of service quality, reliability, customer service, and customer service. You can check for feedback and testimonials on the company’s website, review sites, and social media.
  6. Warranty.
    When choosing a roofing contractor, go for the one who offers a warranty for their services. This way you will be sure of claiming free repairs and replacements within a specified period after they offer their service. This can prove to be extremely beneficial especially when you roof rails because of poor workmanship or material defects.
  7. Experience.
    Experience is crucial in any field of work. A roofing company with extensive experience and knowledge in this field is more likely to produce quality work than a newbie.
