How do you know it's the right time to reach out to a professional commercial roofer in Chicago? While property owners and facility/maintenance personnel can tackle most challenges, they can't do everything. A professional roofer is the best source for taking care of one of your building's most critical investments— the roof and its many components.
Connect with a commercial roofing contractor in Chicago when you discover ponding water on a flat roof, leaks, visible damage, or clogged gutters and drains. Even if there aren't any obvious symptoms of roof damage or leaks, it's recommended to meet with an expert in the winter and spring for a routine roof inspection and periodic maintenance. A professional can easily spot lurking issues and swiftly resolve them to protect your investment. Routine inspections and maintenance plans are especially important if you have an active Red Shield™ Warranty.
Contact a Contractor for Roofing System Inspections in Chicago, IL
Though they're outside the scope of Red Shield Warranties, routine inspections are essential to any good roofing system maintenance plan. Your closest ELEVATE roofer in Chicago provides expert roof inspections and roof repairs. What can you expect during most Chicago roof inspections? Your contractor will review roofing membrane seams, drainage, damage from wind or contaminants, and roof traffic. They'll point out cuts or punctures from dropped tools, extreme wear in high traffic spots, and crushed or moist insulation. They'll examine gutters and drains, checking for signs of puddling and structural damage from moisture. Proper drainage is top priority in roof design and maintenance as even a tiny bit of water infiltration can damage the roof deck, roof insulation, and items inside the building. They'll also check the membrane, rooftop equipment, and edge metal for wind damage and ensure that exposure to acids, fats, oils, and other organic solvents has not caused untimely membrane bulging or cracking. Ultimately, the objective is to keep up a watertight roof, and your ELEVATE-approved commercial roofer in Chicago will recommend repairs accordingly.
Whether roof replacement or repairs are needed, the type of commercial roof system and material that's currently in place will determine the course of action.

PVC membranes are also white and solar reflective, which helps to manage a building's energy consumption and temperature and lessen the heat island effect in cities. PVC single-ply roofing membranes are ideal for urban structures subject to grease, chemicals, animal fats, and extreme weather conditions, and can handle some foot traffic thanks to heat-welded, watertight seams.
