Ohio winters usually consist of decent snow storms. Sometimes that snow can really pile up, which is bad news for most commercial roofs. Flat roofs are something to watch when snow begins to build up. Roofs have a weight limit and when exceeded, it is at risk of roof collapse.
Cold surface + warm air = condensation. Even well-insulated buildings are at risk of having an area where the warm interior air escapes and reaches the cold roof. When this happens, condensation will form and if not corrected, it leads to mold, mildew and other damage.
Your roof can be exposed to high winds during winter months. Damaging winds can wreak much havoc on a commercial roof, especially if it already had minor, unnoticed problems beforehand.
You can't control winter weather, but you can control your roof's defense against it. All roofs are at risk during winter months making it important to have your roof inspected by a professional. It minimizes any damage because the problem is caught before it gets out of hand. Ask us about our bi-annual inspection and maintenance program, RoofCare. Call us for more information: 419-739-ROOF.
