When should you connect with a commercial roofing contractor in Cedar Rapids? Although facility managers and building or property owners are equipped to do most things, they can't solve every problem. An expert roofer is your best choice when taking care of one of your property's most critical investments— the roof and its many parts.
Reach out to a commercial roofing contractor in Cedar Rapids when you see visible damage, clogged drains and gutters, ponding water on a flat roof, or leaks. Even if there's no glaring signs of roof damage or leaks, it's wise to consult an expert bi-yearly for a routine roof consultation and periodic maintenance. An experienced contractor can identify potential issues and speedily fix them to safeguard your asset. Inspection and maintenance are also essential if you have an active Red Shield™ Warranty.
Contact a Contractor for Roofing System Inspections in Cedar Rapids, IA
Though they're outside the scope of Red Shield Warranties, regular inspections are critical to any long-term roofing system maintenance program. Your nearest ELEVATE-licensed contractor in Cedar Rapids provides both expert inspections and expert repairs. During your commercial roof inspection in Cedar Rapids, a contractor will evaluate roof traffic wear, drainage, and roofing membrane seams and identify any wind or contaminant damage. They'll take note of crushed or compressed insulation, punctures or cuts from dropped tools, and excessive wear in high traffic areas. They'll examine drainage systems, looking for evidence of ponding water and structural compromise from moisture. Appropriate drainage might be one of the most critical roof design and maintenance details, given that 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 oils, acids, fats, and other organic solvents has not caused untimely membrane cracking or swelling. All in all, the goal is to maintain a watertight roof, and your ELEVATE-approved commercial roofer in Cedar Rapids will advise on repairs that support this goal.
The type of commercial roof material currently in place will determine the specific course of action, whether for replacement or repairs.
