How Often Should You Waterproof Your Commercial Roof?

Being a South Florida commercial property owner, you’re more than aware of the weather found here. Direct sunlight and heavy rain will take their toll on your flat commercial roof. No matter what type of roofing material your roof is made from, it will always be in danger from the harsh Florida weather. 

It’s only a matter of time before water begins to make its way in. If you don’t waterproof your commercial roof, you could be in store for expensive repair bills. To make sure this doesn’t happen, a waterproofing solution is needed and Deluxe Waterproofing & Caulking can provide it. We’ll make sure your flat commercial roof is safe from the water making its way in. 

To help you protect your commercial property from water damage, here are some general guidelines that can be used to see how often you should waterproof your commercial roof.

Have Your Roof Inspected

The most obvious and important step to making sure your roof doesn’t have a leak is by having it inspected by a professional. This is critical since a roofing expert will be able to spot certain spots that you could potentially miss. Having someone locate water damage spots or potential spots can save you from having to spend big money to have them repaired.

It’s also a good idea to have someone inspect your commercial roof after a big storm, such as a tropical storm or hurricane. These harsh storms can cause water damage that was never present before.

Flat Roof Waterproofing Intervals

Using a high-quality waterproofing application for commercial rooking should last for at least ten years. This will obviously vary depending on the amount of bad weather your area sees. Objects such as AC units, chillers, and vents are areas with the highest chance of seeing water damage. 

For roofs that use TPO, EPDM, or PVC membrane roofing solutions, waterproofing treatments won’t be necessary unless the membrane itself is damaged. Don’t assume this is the case though. It will be impossible to know if there is damage unless a Deluxe Waterproofing professional inspects it in person.

If you own a property with a flat roof, it’s a good idea to have your roof inspected at least once a year. South Florida has its fair share of rainstorms so you never know when water can begin to make its way in.
