How do you know it's the right time to reach out to a professional commercial roofer in Illinois? Although facility managers and building or property owners are equipped to do most things, they can't solve every problem. A professional roofing company is your best choice when taking care of one of your structure's most important investments— the roof and its many layers.
Find a commercial roofer near you in Illinois when you notice leaks, ponding water on a flat roof, clogged gutters and drains, and visible damage. Even if there are no glaring symptoms of roof leaks or damage, it's recommended to call on a professional twice a year for a seasonal roof consultation and preventative maintenance. A licensed professional can quickly identify lurking concerns and promptly resolve them to preserve your building. Routine inspections and maintenance plans are especially important if you have an active Red Shield™ Warranty.
Prepare with a Full Roof Inspection in Illinois
Though they're outside the scope of Red Shield Warranties, regularly scheduled inspections are crucial for any successful roof maintenance plan. Your nearest ELEVATE-licensed contractor in Illinois provides both expert inspections and expert repairs. During your commercial roof inspection in Illinois, a contractor will review roofing membrane seams, drainage, damage from wind or contaminants, and roof traffic. They'll note crushed or compressed insulation, punctures or cuts from dropped tools, and excessive wear in high traffic areas. They'll examine drainage systems from top to bottom, looking for evidence of structural compromise from moisture and a history of ponding water. Appropriate drainage might be one of the most critical roof design and maintenance details, as even a tiny bit of water infiltration can impair the roof insulation, roof deck, and building contents. They'll also thoroughly review the edge metal for wind damage, the roof membrane, and rooftop equipment and ensure roof exposure to acids, oils, fats, and other organic solvents hasn't triggered undue membrane swelling or cracking. In the end, the aim is to keep up a watertight roof, and your ELEVATE-approved commercial roofer in Illinois will suggest repairs accordingly.
The specific course of action (for either repair or replacement) depends greatly on the type of commercial roof material currently in place.
