Roof Maintenance: A Crucial Part of Your Roof’s Life Span and Safety
Neglecting your roof can lead to safety issues, as well as the shortening of its life span. In order to ensure your roof will last the test of time without developing leaks that can lead to bigger problems, routine scheduled maintenance should be a part of an ongoing process to keep your property in good shape. Not only will this keep the occupants safe, be they your family members or your employees and customers, it will also allow you to get more service and longer life out of your roof.
Here at Ferguson & Melvin Co., we understand the vital importance of regular roof maintenance for both commercial and residential roofing systems. As a full-service roofing contractor, we are completely equipped to inspect and maintain anything from homes, condos, and apartments to office buildings, retail stores, schools, and hospitals.
Commitment to Safety
Serving much of Southern California since 1979, Ferguson & Melvin Co. specializes in roof maintenance for a variety of our clients. We stay up to date on the latest advances in roofing technology and client management tools, so that we can offer you the best services possible when it comes to professional maintenance. And, we do it with a complete dedication to safety on your project. Our commitment to safety doesn’t end when we install or repair your roof.
We stress the importance of regular inspections to ensure your roof continues to function at optimal capacity. If you’re a business owner, you may have a staff of maintenance technicians to keep up the condition of your property; however, these staff members often don’t have specialized knowledge of complex roof systems. Our servicemen do. We draw on our many years of training and knowledge of a wide range of roofing types, equipped with the right tools to access, repair, maintain or replace roofing materials. The last thing you want is to risk a fall from the roof of one of your employees or yourself.
Roof Maintenance Services
As a full-service roofer, we specialize in everything from new construction roofing and repair to carpentry and inspections. As part of our regular roof maintenance tasks, here’s a brief look at what we can do:
An inspection of your roof should be done at least once a year, twice if you have tall trees next to your roof that drop a large volume of leaves. You can help the process along by keeping an eye on your roof and checking for any problems in the fall and again in the spring. Be on the lookout for damaged flashing, missing or curling shingles, cracking or lifting of the membrane, staining and pooling (a common occurrence on flat roofs). Call us right away if you notice anything amiss.
We always recommend you get on a schedule of routine roof maintenance so we can catch those problems before they become a bigger issue. This will save you on costly repair bills down the road. For commercial business owners, it may also mean the loss of productivity because of downtime while repairs are being made. For apartment owners it could save you thousands in rent, because tenants don’t pay if they have leaks in their units.
Save yourself the hassle and make roof maintenance a priority. Proactive maintenance also keeps your warranty intact!
