Standard Roof Maintenance

All roofing should be inspected and cleaned yearly and after heavy storms. The purpose of this is to check for routine maintenance, storm damage, and to clear the roof of debris that could be blocking water drainage, which if left unchecked, can lead to roof leaks and interior damage to the home. Each type of roofing requires a different type of maintenance at different intervals to keep your roof in good condition and give it the longest life possible. We have listed some maintenance tips below for your convenience.

Maintenance items include but are not limited to:
  • Tile & Slate Roofing: Clearing the roof free of debris, securing loose tiles, and replacing broken or missing tiles, and repairing mortar joints.
  • Shingle & Shake Roofing: Clearing the roof free of debris, securing loose shingles, and replacing missing or broken shingles or shakes, and sealing all penetrations throughout the roof.
  • Flat Roofing: Clearing the roof free of debris, sealing seams and edges, cutting out and patching bubbles, and recoating foam roofing to help protect the foam.
  • Metal Roofing: Clearing the roof free of debris, sealing seams and fastners, repairing or replacing any damaged metal panels, and securing any loose panels. Corrugated Metal Roofing is a type of metal roofing that requires a little more attention because of the exposed fasteners. Because the screws are exposed, the fasteners can become loose over time. Expansion and contraction of the metal panels, incorrect fastner installation, and worn washers can cause loose fasteners which can lead to leaks by allowing water to penetrate between the screw and the washer.

These inspections are the single most important factor when it comes to the life of your roof. We highly recommend this maintenance as it will extend the life of your roof significantly and will save you on unnecessary costly repairs in the future. Maintenance schedules and recommended inspection times are provided as a courtesy and recommended time is approximate. Every roof will require a different schedule, and every roof will have a different lifespan that will vary depending on weather, sun exposure, storm exposure, etc. We will not be legally responsible for any roof or home damage based on following this recommended roof maintenance schedule.

Flat Roof Maintenance

Maintaining a flat roof involves specific practices that vary depending on the type of roofing material used. Regular and appropriate maintenance extends the life of your roof and ensures it remains effective in protecting your property. Here’s what you need to know about maintaining different types of flat roofing systems:

Rolled Roofing Maintenance

Rolled roofing, being economical and straightforward in its application, requires vigilant maintenance to perform its best. Regular tasks should include:

  • Debris Removal: Keeping the roof clear of debris such as leaves, branches, and dirt that can accumulate and retain moisture, potentially damaging the material.
  • Sealing Edges and Seams: Periodically check and seal the edges and seams to prevent water infiltration which can lead to leaks and other water damage.
Foam Roofing Maintenance

Foam roofing offers excellent insulation and waterproofing but needs careful maintenance to preserve these qualities:

  • Debris Removal: Like rolled roofing, keeping foam roofs free of debris is crucial to prevent damage and allow for proper drainage.
    Bubble Maintenance: Inspect for and promptly repair any bubbles or delaminations in the foam to prevent moisture ingress.
  • Recoating: Apply a new layer of elastomeric coating every three to eight years, depending on the exposure and local weather conditions, to protect the foam from UV rays, drying, and cracking.
    Sealing Features: Regularly reseal scuppers (drainage outlets) and penetrations to maintain the integrity of the waterproof seal.
Walking Deck Maintenance

Walking decks not only enhance the usability of your space but also require regular upkeep to maintain their condition and functionality:

  • Debris Removal: Regular cleaning to remove debris is essential to avoid the buildup of materials that can cause wear or block drainage systems.
    Resealing Scuppers: Ensure that drainage points are well-maintained to prevent water accumulation.
  • Periodic Resealing: Reseal the surface every three to eight years to protect against weather elements and prevent the material from drying out and cracking, which is vital to preserve both the aesthetic and functional quality of the deck.

Each type of flat roofing has its specific maintenance needs, which are crucial for prolonging the roof’s life and optimizing its performance. By understanding and implementing these tailored maintenance strategies, you can significantly enhance the durability and effectiveness of your flat roofing system. Regular professional inspections can help catch and address potential issues before they become serious, saving you time and money in the long run.
