Getting Roofs Ready for Summer | Titan Roofing & Construction

Summer is just around the corner, and things are about to get heated. If Tennessee summers came with a warning, it would probably be, “If the heat doesn’t get you, the humidity definitely will!” Plus, we can’t forget about the thunderstorms.

Whether you love or hate Tennessee’s hot and humid summer months, one thing is certain — they’re hard on your business roof. It takes a proactive approach to make sure your roof is ready. Have you ever wondered what advice seasoned roofing contractors would give you about “summerizing” your commercial roof? Here, you’ll get tips straight from the horse’s mouth!

Check Whether You Need a Roof Inspection

We know! If you’ve looked through Titan’s blog for roof maintenance tips, you’ll inevitably have seen this piece of advice over and over again. Most roofers would advise every property owner (residential and commercial alike) to schedule a thorough roof inspection at least once a year, although twice a year is ideal.

If that seems excessive, consider this — commercial roof repair can be expensive and disruptive to your daily work, and roof inspections allow you to catch emerging issues before they become massive problems requiring extensive repair work.

You don’t need an extra roof inspection to get your commercial roof summer-ready if you already had one at the beginning of spring, but consider calling Titan Roofing & Construction or another reputable roofing company now if your last inspection was in fall (or even earlier).

Address Roof Repair Needs

If your roof inspection uncovers issues like damaged sealants, punctured roofing membranes, loose seams, or malfunctioning gutters, have the necessary roof repair work carried out before summer hits.

You may or may not know that relative humidity levels in Tennessee can go up to 90 percent during the summer. This isn’t just unpleasant for many people, but, together with the inevitable thunderstorms, it can also do a real number on your roof — especially if you already have minor damage. Take care of it now to make sure your roof is ready for summer!

Consider Commercial Roof Coatings

Reflective and energy-saving commercial roof coatings are available for all types of business roofs, including metal roofs, EPDM, TPO, PVC, and built-up roofing. These protective layers can prevent the need for metal roof repair work if your roof’s finish has deteriorated due to aging, and add years to any roof’s functional lifespan. Thought you needed a commercial roof replacement? With a roof coating, you can skip this expense and enjoy your roof longer. Commercial roof coatings reduce the risk of UV-related damage and help protect your roof from severe weather.

Commercial roof coatings also have two other distinct advantages. They contribute to making your commercial building much more comfortable during the hot summer months (potentially leading to increased productivity), and they can drastically lower your cooling costs.

Have Your HVAC System Inspected

This look at the best steps to take to get your Tennessee commercial roof ready for summer wouldn’t be complete without addressing one issue a commercial roof repair contractor can’t help you with — having your HVAC system inspected and repaired.

A properly functioning HVAC system ensures that your building remains at a comfortable temperature throughout Tennessee’s hot summers. That, in turn, lowers the strain your roof is under.
