4 Things You Need to Know About Commercial Roofing Maintenance & Repairs, Newington, Connecticut

Installing a new roof on a commercial or industrial building can be costly, so you’ll want to take care of it properly to ensure it lasts its entire expected lifespan. New Britain Roofing Co., Newington, CT’s leader in commercial roofing, says while industrial roof lifespans can vary depending on the type of material used, you can expect it to last anywhere between 30 and 100 years. However, without proper maintenance or repair work, it could fail long before then.

To ensure your commercial or industrial roof lasts as long as possible, consider these four tips from New Britain Roofing Co., the commercial roofing experts:

  • Remove Debris Regularly: Over time, your building’s roof is sure to collect debris. Whether it be leaves, branches, or even garbage making its way up there during the last wind storm, it’s never a good idea to leave debris lingering on your roof. Make a plan to clean it regularly, at least once a year.
  • Cut Low-Hanging Tree Branches: To avoid damage from tree branches from landing on your roof, trim back any nearby trees. It may even be a good idea to remove the trees completely if they are extremely close to the building or are sickly, as they could fall and cause structural damage to both the roof and your building.

  • Clean The Gutters Often: Gutters, while meant to drain the water from your building’s roof, are also excellent leaf and debris collectors. If they aren’t cleaned out regularly, they can pose serious problems to your roof. Overflowing, clogged gutters can’t protect your roof in the way they’re meant to, so have them cleaned often, especially as the seasons change.
  • Don’t Avoid Repairs: If you notice a leak or other problems with your commercial or industrial roof, have them addressed right away. Avoiding small repairs could lead to bigger, more costly problems in the future and may even require a complete roof replacement.

New Britain Roofing Co. also says routinely inspecting your roof can help to extend its life expectancy, as you may catch potential problems before an issue actually arises.
