The 2020 calendar year presented plenty of obstacles for businesses. Many businesses may have fallen behind on new goals or even regular upkeep. With commercial roofs, it’s important not to let business setbacks stand in the way of regular care and maintenance. Negligence can only lead to heavier costs further down the line.
The new year presents a new opportunity to get back on track with help from your commercial roofing contractor. Here are a few New Year’s resolutions to consider for your commercial roof in 2021:
1. Get an Inspection
Scheduling regular inspections for your commercial roof is critical to extending its life. Inspectors can catch small roofing issues and take care of them before they become catastrophic problems. If your company has fallen behind on roof care, an inspection is the best place to start getting back on track.
2. Create a Maintenance Schedule
Commercial roofs are exposed to the elements all day, every day. Even the most well-constructed roofs will experience wear and tear over time. While performing regular inspections, your commercial roofing contractor will be able to identify what type of roof cleaning and other maintenance is needed to keep your roof in top shape.
3. Stop Waiting on Repairs
In a time of crisis, it may not seem like minor roof repairs should be a top business priority, however, small roofing issues can quickly become big problems if left for too long. Getting a repair done early will save money in the long-run and stave off any potential safety issues. If you’ve been delaying a repair, make it a New Year’s resolution to take care of it.
4. Upgrade your Roof
If you’ve been putting off a roof replacement, 2021 might be the year for a new roof. Though expensive, new roofs go a long way in extending the life of a building. A well-constructed commercial roof can keep your building safe. Upgrades to insulation or rooftop HVAC equipment can also help keep your building energy efficient, saving your business money over time.
5. Make a Long-Term Plan
Ongoing roof care shouldn’t be an afterthought when the new year comes along.
