Are you selling or buying a commercial building? Are you experiencing roof leaks to your flat, commercial building? Or do you just want to stay proactive and make sure you address roof problems before they get out of control? In any case, your best first step is often to get a rooftop inspection.
But if you look at a roof inspection as just a perfunctory effort to keep your insurance or mortgage company happy, then you may be missing the importance of it. That's not uncommon, however, especially in the commercial roofing industry. Commercial roofs are usually flat, which means you can't see them from the ground. You end up spending a lot of time inside a building that is being protected by a roof you never see.
Unfortunately this scenario leads to an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. You never think of the importance of your roof until it is failing. But by the time you experience evidence of a roofing problem; i.e., a roof leak, the problem may be far more extensive than that isolate leak may seem to indicate.
