Preparing Your Roof for Winter



Preparing a commercial roof for winter is especially important in areas with
intense winter weather and snowfall. Failing to prepare a flat roof (TPO, PVC,
EPDM, etc.) can lead to multiple issues, ranging from leaks that cause interior
water damage to total roof collapse.

Considering the cost of a roof replacement, many property managers and
building owners find it to be a wise choice to invest in a semi-annual/annual
roof inspection
to determine the integrity of their roof. Here are some items
MidAmerica Roofing can cover in an annual inspection:

  • Inspection of a roof's drainage system
  • Testing of roof seams and edges
  • Cleaning gutters, downspouts, and debris/litter on the roof
  • Checking the roof membrane for tears, punctures, and voids
  • Minor repairs to any damaged sections of the roof
  • A roof assessment report with recommendations and anticipated remaining lifespan

Maintaining the integrity of your commercial roof is a year-round job. Taking
preventative measures such as those covered in a roof inspection ensures that
your flat roof is ready to handle the stress of harsh winter weather.
