Is Your Commercial Roofing Structure Ready For El Niño?

Is Your Commercial Roofing Structure Ready For El Niño?The southern tier of the U.S. is currently experiencing a strong and ongoing El Niño weather pattern. Expect heavy precipitation this winter and into late spring or early summer if current forecast models hold true. All of this extra moisture can wreak havoc on a roof that is in need of maintenance or is in danger of failing completely.

There are some steps you can take to ensure you’re prepared.

  •  Have your roof inspected for any issues that may cause leaks or other damage during heavy precipitation.
  •  Have your roof, gutters, and downspouts cleared of any debris that may cause your roof to drain improperly and cause damage.
  • Check for any other issues that may cause damage to your roof during strong storms such as overhanging tree limbs. Have these issues corrected as soon as possible. It is a good idea to have your trees checked for health as well.
  • Review your insurance coverage with your insurance agent to ensure you’re prepared for all possibilities including floods. Make sure you have coverage for any issues you may have with building tenants that could be caused by roof damage or failure. The cost to replace a roof has likely gone up since you last had it replaced. Be prepared.
  • If your roof has damage, get it repaired or replaced sooner rather than later. In some areas of the U.S. such as Los Angeles it is currently taking months to schedule a roofing contractor. Be proactive and save the potential headache later on.

With a little foresight and planning, you can avoid the hassle of severe damage caused by roof failure and water damage during heavy storms. N-Tex Roof Systems has decades of commercial roofing experience in and can help you through the process. Please contact us to schedule an appointment today.
