Winter Tips for Flat Roof Care

Winter in the Midwest is full speed ahead. Overland Park commercial contractors know that commercial roof care is especially important during colder months. That said, commercial property owners often have their plates full with running a business. That means roof maintenance isn’t always a priority. 

If you’re a property owner and this story sounds familiar, why not leave commercial roofing concerns in the hands of a professional? Shamrock Roofing and Construction provides commercial roofing installation, repair, and maintenance services for properties all over the Overland Park area. Contact us for more information on our commercial roofing services. Or start here for our advice on how to winterize a commercial roof.

Schedule Regular Inspections

Many commercial roofs are made of a TPO membrane which is highly vulnerable to winter storm damage. TPO roof repair is expensive, so why not get ahead of the game with an annual inspection? 

During a roofing evaluation, our team of Overland Park commercial contractors will assess your roof for damages like punctures, cracked caulking, or loose gutter systems. They’ll also attend to any blisters or pockets of water underneath your roof’s membrane. Taking care of these items before they turn into more significant issues is a no-brainer when caring for your commercial roofing structure. 

Clip Back Surrounding Limbs and Branches

While Shamrock Roofing recommends regular roof inspections with a qualified commercial roofer, there are preventative measures you can take independently as well. Evaluate the space around your commercial property, looking for loose and overhanging limbs. Remove dead branches and shrubs before they snap and fall with the weight of a heavy snow. This is a great way to keep your roof, your building, and your tenants free from harm.

Clean the Drain Hub

Most commercial properties contain some sort of drainage hub (sometimes multiple hubs). Clearing this space of dirt and debris with a plumber’s snake will keep your drainage system intact so snow and rain don’t accumulate. Most calls received for TPO roof repair are due to some type of water damage caused by standing water. Cleaning out the drainage system is a must-do in the winter.

In an Emergency, Call Shamrock Roofing!

Sometimes, even when taking the best precautions, emergencies happen. As a business owner, you already know the importance of having a Plan B. Why not apply that same strategy to roofing care and maintenance?
