October is here and we’re on the brink of some hefty wet weather this fall in the Midwest. The last thing we all want to talk about is the rain, sleet, and snow that will be forecasted as we’ve spent precious moments in the beautiful summer weather these past several months. Still, the roofing industry is here to help you prepare for the leaks and repairs you could run into this upcoming season.
The first step is being responsible by taking action. Make sure you are prepared to manage and maintain both commercial and industrial buildings, because the harsh weather is bound to affect those who think there is time to waste. According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, the snowfall in the Chicago area this coming winter “will be above normal in most of the region, with the snowiest periods in mid-December, early [to] mid-January, and early February.”
Also, always keep in mind that knowledge is power. Know the common causes of roof leaks such as: puncture wounds to various portions of the roof, rotting materials, cracked flashings, broken shingles, poor roof and gutter drainage and installation. Now is the right time to fix existing problems and take preventive measures by making sure your roof is in good condition to handle the up-and-coming unpredictable weather.
With proper maintenance, you can avoid leaks and further extend the life of your roof in return. You can seek proper precaution and prevent roof leaks at your facilities every season of the year by reaching out to the roofing experts!
