It’s October – Will Your Roof Survive The Winter?

If your commercial building is in need of a new roof, there is still plenty of good weather to complete the process. Often, the need for a new roof is forgotten during the drier summer months, but as the end of the year approaches and cooler, wetter weather sets in, building owners and managers should consider whether their roofs will be able to outlast another winter.

Now is the perfect time to evaluate the integrity of your roofing system. In the fall, leaves, branches, and debris often collect on a roof and clog drains and vents, causing water to pond and possibly damage the roof. It’s a good idea to take a roofing expert – perhaps a local contractor you can trust (get references) – up on the roof to help you determine whether to repair or replace it.

If you decide to replace your roof, the Duro-Last roofing system is formulated so it can be installed with top-quality results during the marginal weather that affects much of the country in the last quarter of the year. A Duro-Last installation does not require a specific daytime temperature range, and is not affected by humidity variations.

If you need a contractor, we have relationships with local roofers across North America. If you are already working with a roofing contractor on a new Duro-Last installation you still have plenty of time to complete the process and get the roof installed before the arrival of harsher weather in the first quarter of the year.

Performing a little rooftop “due diligence” now could prevent the formation of a bucket brigade inside your building next spring.<-->
