Preparing Your Flat Roof for the Fall

Article Summary: 

Fall and winter are the start of colder temperatures and increased precipitation, so it is important to prepare your commercial flat roof for the cooler months ahead. To do this, it is important to hire a professional roofing company to clear off leaves, twigs, and other debris from the roof's surface and gutters. Additionally, it is important to inspect your flat roof annually, which should be done by a licensed professional. During flat roof inspections, a professional roofing contractor should look for loose or open seams, gaps, holes, and cracked or rusted flashings. To ensure the drainage system is working properly, a commercial roofing professional should pay extra attention to any drain hubs or other drainage areas around the roof.

If the drainage system has any clogs or leaks, the roof is at higher risk for severe ice accumulation, which can require a full flat roof replacement. Crown Industrial Roofing is a trusted and respected commercial flat roof expert in Toronto, Ontario and the surrounding areas.
