As you plan ahead for the busy summer rental season, one of the first tasks to address is a thorough roof inspection. Roofs and gutters can take a beating during the winter months, and it is important to address any issues before a problem escalates into a leak causing costly damage to the facility or tenants’ stored items.

Be sure to inspect the following areas and perform required maintenance in a timely manner.

  • Loose or missing fasteners, or enlarged fastener holes
  • Exposed sealants or dry rot
  • Entrance points for pipes and HVAC systems
  • Ponding water
  • Damaged screws, shingles, or flashing
  • Gutters and downspouts
