It is your first line of defense against the damaging effects of severe weather, such as wind and excessive heat. Everyday exposure to the elements can cause deterioration resulting in leaks and damage to your building. An annual inspection and routine maintenance of your commercial roof is a vital part of protecting its longevity. As with many other things in life, ignoring a small problem can lead to bigger issues, along with a bigger price tag down the road.   

What parts of the roof should have a routine inspection?

A routine inspection involves checking all parts of the roof for signs of damage. Areas your roof inspector should check include:


Looking for rust in steel decks or rot in wood decks.

Parapet Wall

Checking that flashings have been installed correctly and are not damaged.

Roof Curb

Ensuring that flashing around roof curbs is not loose or damaged.


Checking for sagging edges.


Looking for missing or broken tiles.


Checking for deterioration of the coating and damage to the membrane.


Checking for rust on all metal parts of the roof, including flashings, vents, skylights, seams, ridge caps, and fasteners.

What types of damage should the inspector check for?

A reputable roofing company will check for several types of damage, including:

    • Cracked Cement
    • Cracked or Decaying Caulk
    • Open Laps
