Believing in misconceptions surrounding commercial roofing systems can be dangerous for some business owners. This is because it can create a false sense of security that can affect your business’ long-term performance and even your daily operations due to costly repairs. Here are some of the common myths surrounding commercial roofing systems.
“Holding Off Repairs Saves Money”
When it comes to commercial roofing, it’s your responsibility as a business owner to take a proactive approach to protect your roofing system. At no time should you hold off roof repairs since your roof can suffer serious damage, which will lead to costly repairs. You’ll save more in the long run by having regular inspections that can catch minor issues like leaks and rotting, which can become serious later on.
“My Roof Is New so There’s No Problems”
The moment your commercial roofing contractors finish the job, your roofing system is already performing to protect your property from the elements. A few years later on, it could sustain damage due to high foot traffic, littering and even the elements. To catch small issues before they worsen, make sure that you schedule annual inspections and maintenance checks to keep your commercial roof from issues to keep it performing at optimal levels.
“All Commercial Roofs Are Similar”
There are tons of commercial roofing systems you can pick from on the market. There are flat roofs, traditional built-up roofs (BUR) and even single-layer membrane roofs. Weighing out the benefits and drawbacks of each option and finding out the best roofing material and type for your climate will do wonders for your property.
