It’s slowly but surely getting colder now that winter is almost here. Before the rain starts pouring down, it’s time to start thinking about your business’s roof. Although we’re lucky to live in Los Angeles where we don’t have to deal with snowstorms, that doesn’t mean your roof is free from taking a beating during the winter months. The rain can do some serious damage to your company’s roof, so here are some tips to make sure you’re ready to handle the coming downpours and keep your business running smoothly.
Inspect Your Roof
The first thing you’ll want to do is perform a thorough inspection of your commercial roof before the rainy season. Inspecting your roof should entail the following:
● Look for any spots or stains on your ceiling that could indicate a leak.
● Get on your roof and look for possible trouble spots.
● Analyze the HVAC units on top of your roof for any cracks or holes.
It is crucial to take these steps before it starts raining so you can catch any problems early. Resolving issues before they turn into massive leaks can save you a lot of time and money.
Clean Your Gutters
Another simple thing you can do to prepare your commercial property for the winter is regularly cleaning the debris out of your gutters, downspouts, and drains. This prevents any gunk and water backing up and damaging your building.
