As the spring season approaches, it’s time for maintenance managers to start thinking about the state of their commercial roofs. With the winter weather behind us, it’s essential to assess the condition of your roof and make any necessary repairs before the hot summer months arrive.
To help you get started, we’ve put together a comprehensive checklist of things to look for and consider when maintaining your commercial roof this spring. And, to make it even easier, we’ve turned the checklist into a convenient PDF that you can download and use as you conduct your roof maintenance.

Here’s a preview of what you can expect to find in the PDF:
Inspect for Damages
Take a walk around your building and inspect your roof for any visible signs of damage, such as cracks, punctures, or missing shingles. Look for any signs of water damage, such as discoloration, inside your building as well.
Clean your Roof
Remove any debris, such as fallen branches or leaves, from your roof. This will help prevent water from pooling and causing damage.
Check your Gutters and Downspouts
Ensure that your gutters and downspouts are free of debris and functioning properly. If they’re clogged, water can back up and cause damage to your roof and building.
Look for Signs of Wear and Tear
Check the flashings and seals around roof penetrations, such as vents and skylights, for signs of wear and tear. If they’re damaged, they need to be repaired or replaced to prevent water from entering your building.
Check your Roof’s Drainage System
Ensure that water is draining properly from your roof. If water is standing on your roof for extended periods, it can cause damage and leaks.
Assess the Condition of your Roof Membrane
If your commercial roof has a membrane, inspect it for signs of damage, such as cracks or blisters. If you find any damage, it’s essential to have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent water from entering your building.
