Commercial roofs are subject to normal wear-and-tear just like any other roof. However, it can be more challenging to spot problem areas on commercial roofs than residential roofs. This is why the roofing professionals at Executive Roofing Systems, Inc. recommend roof inspections twice a year. If your building has recently been exposed to hail, hurricanes, tornadoes, or high winds, it is best to schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Regular roof inspections will help to find minor problems before they turn into serious emergencies.
When a commercial roof inspection is performed, the most important things to look for include:
- Visible damage
- Dirt and debris
- Fading or chalking
- Excessive movement in expansion joints
- Signs of water damage
- Signs of moisture in the ceiling
- Deterioration of roof edges
- Loss of firmness of the substrate
- Ponding, deposits, and growth

That’s why we provide prompt inspections and maintenance programs for your business.
