Remove Debris Regularly: Over time, your building’s roof is sure to collect debris.

Make a plan to clean it regularly, at least once a year.
It always pays to take a proactive stance when it comes to your roof. If you do this, it can help save you more money further down the line. Regular maintenance can go a long way towards a longer lasting roof.
So it comes as no surprise that one of the first steps to take is to carry out regular inspections. What might surprise you is that the most common cause of damage to your roof is not what you think it is…
Surprisingly, weather is not the most common threat to a roof’s durability. Approximately 40%[iv] of all roof problems occur because of human error due to workers going on your roof for window washing, HVAC repair, etc., faulty maintenance or poor installation in the first place. Therefore, proper training, experience and consistent performance are all essential when choosing a roofing provider.
