Roof Maintenance – A Better Way to Keep Your Roof in Tip-Top Shape

Eskola Roof Maintenance Process
Eskola follows an exhaustive commercial roof maintenance plan
Stage 1: Building Survey and Roof Assessment
During our first visit, we note down the surroundings of your commercial building to measure the risks. We’ll’ determine if your roof is at low-risk or high risk depending on your building is located relative to wind direction, trees surrounding it, and estimate how well it’s likely to withstand harsh weather.
Also, we note down
- How much foot traffic your roof gets every day
- The heavy objects exerting pressure on it
- If it is used for any activities that might be wearing it out
This gives us an idea about the frequency and amount of maintenance work that needs to be done on your commercial roof regularly. Our experience says, the more significant the activity, the faster the roof will wear out.
Stage 2: Customized Inspection Plan Design
With the information collected in step 1, we’ll’ outline a customized inspection plan solely for your commercial building. To start with, our roofing contractors will decide on the best roof inspection schedule suitable for your commercial building. This could be once every six months or inspections after significant weather events. If you choose Eskola’s’ commercial maintenance program- Eskola Shield offers semiannual inspections. Next in the plan, we’ll’ write down a practical inspection checklist to use on every maintenance visit with the goal to
- Clear the debris on the roof
- Check and keep the drainage systems functional
- Note down the areas with standing water
- Limit objects that might penetrate the roof
- Restrict access to unauthorized people
- Train cleaning personnel about how to care for the roof
- Clear ice deposits on overhangs and others
For roof inspections after significant weather events, we examine the ceilings for water stains, cracks, and interior walls for damage.
Stage 3: Identifying roof problems
We’ll inspect every roof’s inch to find problem spots and note them down. Our roofing inspection specialists will especially evaluate the roof edges, flashes, terminations, drains, scuppers, gutters, roof penetrations, unites, control joints, and expansions to find common roof problems.
Stage 4: Roof Treatment and Repair
When it’s time to fix roof problems and apply for roof protection, Eskola’s roof repair crew lands fully geared with a vast arsenal of roofing and waterproofing products. Our roofing contractors skillfully use caulk guns, nail guns, air compressors, blades, hammers, shovels, sealants, fabric, cement, and more to add multiple coats of resilience and prolong the longevity of your existing roof.
Stage 5: Detailed Recording
Our habit of recording all the roof activity saves our clients and us a tremendous amount of time. We quickly go back to previous repairs, check their status and swiftly examine and strengthen weaker sections of your commercial roof on our very scheduled maintenance visit.
