Thunderstorms and winter storms are a year-round concern for Denver homes and businesses.
If you’re worried about your commercial property’s ability to withstand high winds, rain, snow, and ice, the first thing you should take care of is your roof. It’s your first line of defense against everything we just mentioned and, as a result, takes the biggest beating.
Plenty of Denver companies have had to shut their doors for days at a time to deal with roof damage, but that doesn’t have to be you. That is why it is important to get regular roof inspections. In this post, we’re going to tell you about a few benefits of storm damage roof inspections.
Getting your roof inspected after severe weather is a no-brainer. Keep reading and see what an inspection might reveal and how you’ll benefit.
Avoid Expensive Repairs
Storms of all kinds often do at least some damage to a roof. When you get an immediate roof inspection after you’ve seen storm damage, it helps you avoid expensive repairs in the future.
By catching and repairing it early, you won’t have to deal with ongoing problems. Inspections help to increase the lifespan of your roof.
A roof inspector will come as soon as it’s safe and thoroughly examine your roof for signs of damage and leaking. With a trained eye, they’ll know exactly what to look for so you can avoid any structural damage to your roof.
Maintain Property Value
If you have a dilapidated roof, not only is it an eyesore, but it can decrease the resale value of your building. By scheduling a roof inspection every time there’s inclement weather, you can maintain its value over a longer period of time.
The cost of having a roof inspection is nominal compared with the money you may lose if you don’t maintain your roof.
Keep Your Employees Safe
You probably know the old adage, it’s always better to be safe than sorry. After a storm, it’s always important to ensure your employees and visitors are safe in your building. An inspection will let you know if there are any structural issues that you need to worry about. If any of your employees or anyone visiting your building are injured whether it’s a slip and fall from a leak or get sick due to exposure caused by roof damage, you’ll have to go through the workers’ comp process or litigation which can be costly. Additionally, not caring for your buildings can also be perceived as not caring for your employees, damaging your office morale and company reputation.
No Water Damage
Storm damage often creates small leaks that become big ones with each subsequent storm. The more leaks you have, the more water damaged your building can become.
Water damage can lead to structural issues. It is also a catalyst to mold and mildew, which can cause even bigger problems for your building, as well as the people inside of it.
