Many business owners rent or lease their brick and mortar building space. The benefits of leasing or renting is the ease of not having to worry about costly maintenance. As a renter, you can usually leave it to the property manager of the building to take care of the building’s needs for you. However, as a property manager or the owner of a business who owns their own building, there are things you must think about such as the roof of your building! Below you will find out tips on how to keep up with your building’s roof maintenance.

  • Weather - Keep into consideration that weather such as extreme heat/sunlight, wind, and rainstorms, take a toll on your roof.
  • Seasons - The winter season can take an extra toll on your roof due to the freezing and thawing that occurs all winter long. This can possibly lead to dry rot in parts of your roof.
