If you just bought a new building, making sure the roof is in good order should be your first action in determining to see whether your roof will be up to the task of protecting your business from storms. Although you can simply replace your roof, that prospect can be a costly one, and in most cases, you will want to avoid spending too much, if at all possible:
- Start by calling a professional Dallas roofer to inspect your building and determine whether your roof needs any fortifications, upgrades or fixes that could enhance its weatherproof qualities – such as repairing damages that may lead to leaks, fixing pooling issues or installing new coating onto the top layer.
- Even the most resilient flat membrane roofs need proper maintenance. Consider talking to a reputable flat roofing Dallas contractor about visiting your property twice a year for scheduled roof maintenance, and make sure you have them arrive before and after winter to prevent weather changes and heightened precipitations from making matters worse if your roof really is damaged.
- Have your old roof replaced with a more durable and resilient one. If your old roof is too old, or if it’s made from a material that isn’t rated to last for more than 5-10 years, then you might be better off investing in a more durable material, like EPDM, bitumen or metal, which, with proper maintenance, will be able to protect your business from Texas storms for up to 2-4 decades.
