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
