Roof Condition Assessments
October 26, 2023
The freeze and thaw cycle of winter weather can negatively impact roof systems. Snow and ice dams may trap water, pushing it into roof cracks and holes. Water saturation of the insulation under a roof membrane can cause major leaks and possibly structural deck damage, which can go unnoticed until it’s too late.
The best way to prevent unexpected damage to a roof system is to perform annual roof inspections. Roof condition assessments can help you better understand the life expectancy of your roof, address immediate concerns, optimize building performance, and expedite a remediation strategy if needed.
