Uncover the Secret of Shingles: Unfolding the Importance of Commercial Roof Inspection

Do you know a well-executed roof inspection can save thousands of dollars in repair or replacement costs? So, stock up on your ladder jokes because we’re “raising the roof” on commercial roof inspection. Welcome to the world of Cline Roofing and Construction, where quality meets integrity; now let’s ‘shingle’ out the issues one by one.

Why Is Roof The Headliner?

According to the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), conducting a roof inspection twice a year is no short of a blockbuster deal for your establishment. The spotlight on roof inspection is due to its high potential to recognize minor problems before they escalate into more prominent, pricier productions.

Understanding the Power of Wind

The International Building Code (IBC) isn’t “blowing hot air” when it states that commercial roofs must withstand winds of at least 90 mph. Consequently, a crucial act of any roof inspection is to identify signs of damage caused by wind loads. So while we might be singing “Gone with the Wind,” it’s essential to ensure our roofs won’t jest so.

Don’t Let Your Roof ‘Drain’ Your Finances!

The National Roofing Contractors Association insists on checking for proper drainage during a Commercial Roof Inspection. An inadequately drained roof can become a breeding ground for issues like ponding water, thus speeding up roof deterioration. So, opting for regular roof maintenance can keep the ‘current’ of your finances flowing smoothly!

Benefits of Shingle Repair: A Penny Saved is a Penny Earned

Shingle repair is not just about maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your property; it’s about your building safety too. Ensuring timely shingle repair can help reduce inspection costs, keeping your roof damage prevention budget “nailed” to a minimum.

Commercial Property Care: Unlocking the Future with Preventive Measures

Opting for routine roof inspections is like getting a peek into the future of your commercial property care. Preventive measures can help you save and strategize better, so while your roof might be above your head, your finances don’t have to be.


How often should I conduct a roof inspection?

While most roofs should be inspected at least twice a year, the frequency might change based on the exposure to harsh weather conditions.

What damage can wind cause to my roof?

Wind can cause extensive wear and tear, including loose or missing shingles, ultimately affecting your roof’s integrity.

Why is drainage a critical aspect of a roof inspection?

A poorly-drained roof can lead to issues like ponding water which accelerates roof deterioration and can potentially cause leaks or structural damage.

Tips to Keep Your Roof’s ‘Act’ Together

1. Develop a habit of conducting routine inspections.

2. Address minor damages immediately to avoid major shingle repair costs.

3. Ensure good drainage to prevent accelerating the roof deterioration process.

4. Keep a watch for wind damage signs and take preventive actions.

5. Schedule professional inspections for an accurate evaluation of roof health.

In this ‘rafter’ race of property management, regular commercial roof inspections might seem like an extra workload, but it can actually allow you to sustain ‘archi’tecture’s gift that keeps on ‘truss’ing – your roof. Remember, roof maintenance is a game where the ‘stakes’ are high, but they’re worth the safety, savings and peace of mind.
