Maintaining a commercial roof system is about taking a proactive approach when dealing with problems that may compromise its performance and structural integrity. The idea is to get on top of issues at their early stages before they become so advanced that they wreak havoc on your roof. In doing so, you also get to spend less on repairs.
Facilities managers and property owners, therefore, must do their part in making sure the roofing systems are as maintainable as possible. In today’s post, local roof repair and replacement contractor Pritchett Roofing, Inc. discusses the vital elements that are found in a maintainable commercial roofing system.Roof Access
A commercial roof is considered maintainable if inspectors can easily access it for routine inspections and needed repairs. Then again, excess roof strain may manifest once too many unauthorized individuals can gain access to the roof. Owners and managers must take control over who can get up the building or structure.Pipe Support
Pipelines running along the rooftop require necessary support. A block of wood lying on top of the membrane roof, however, does not count as one. Without the benefit of a proper pipe support system, makeshift materials could wear down and tear apart the membrane. This leads to leaks and other issues that may lead to early roof replacement.Equipment Clearance
Stands are required to support roofing equipment and must adhere to guidelines set forth by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). Large-sized equipment requires taller stands. These must also provide enough clearance to let the pros get under the equipment for maintenance and repairs.
