What many business owners already know is that commercial roof inspections are very similar to residential ones. If you own a building or just about anything else that has something resembling a roof, you will need to inspect that roof to make sure that it doesn’t leak and that it can still protect your building to an adequate extent. But how frequent should these inspections be?
Depending on where you live, it can vary a lot. Balanced climates usually lead to better protection for your roof. You won’t have to deal with a lot of damage over time, if your area barely has any storms, the overcast weather prevents UV radiation from reaching your house, and the winters and summers are generally mild.
Some of the main factors that might lead you to have to inspect your roof more often include frequent and intense temperature drops during the winter, increased precipitation in the spring and fall and hot summer days with the sun shining almost all the time on your roof.
Roof restoration Dallas specialists affirm that while in milder climates it’s fine to have your roof inspected only once a year (especially if you own a low-maintenance roof like a metal or tile roof), in areas with a more extreme climate, whether hot, cold, moist or dry, you will need to schedule roof inspections at least 2-3 times per year to make sure your roof doesn’t have extensive damage.
