Schedule a roof evaluation!
Do some research!
The question is always interesting on whether owners or property managers have had a roof inspection completed within the last 12 months, and had the results documented. Not a lot of hands go up. Why?
Next to the foundation, the roof is arguably the next most important part of a building. No other building component takes as much varied abuse as the roof. The sun, rain, snow, wind… foot traffic, vandalism, chemical spillage, animal feces… the list continues…never forget the roof protects your assets inside!
Generally speaking roof replacement is only necessary for two reasons:
If issues are spread across the entire roof area and they equate to approximately 25% of the roof area, likely a replacement is necessary.
A roof replacement can be considered a costly inconvenience and should be your last resort!
WHY DO YOU NEED SNOW REMOVAL ON YOUR FLAT ROOF?
• Avoid excessive weight on building structure
• Avoid damage to building structure
• Avoid irregular ponding leading to increased leaks
• Avoid clogging draining locations

WHY FLAT ROOF REPAIRS?

• Prevent premature roof replacement
KEY FACTORS TO SUCCESSFUL REPAIRS
• Owners should budget for roof repairs annually to ensure maximum life span
• Repairs should be carried out by a certified flat roofing contractor only to avoid repeat repairs
• Be proactive - minimize down-time and damage to the interior of the building
• Preform minor repairs consistently instead of costly major repairs

Commercial Flat Roof Cleaning is a crucial part of the ongoing maintenance you should be performing on your flat roof system every year.
Over time, bird and animal feces can build up and begin to corrode the membrane surface which compromises the integrity of your roof. Environmental debris such as soil, leaves, and tree limbs will begin to decompose and eat away at the membrane, or worse, can create plants with roots attempting to penetrate the roof causing costly repairs later on. Not to mention, accumulated debris can promote ponding in areas where the roof is not designed to hold water, rather than properly draining at designed drainage locations. With the absence of a proper Roof Cleaning Program, you subject your roof to many elements which can have a negative impact on the lifespan of your roof.
When taking a moment to finally reflect on 2017 and where we are now as a company, the first word that comes to mind is “Wow”…
After coming off a record year in 2016, our team at Alliance had our sights on another milestone year. Momentum was strong and demand was an all-time high after company record-breaking numbers. Our team continued to grow throughout the year, with new staff and opportunities to expand divisions to meet our clients need. With that, comes new challenges and adaptations, which ultimately, would come to define 2017 for us.
