Protect Your Commercial Roof During Denver's Spring Weather
Updated: Aug 10
The unpredictable spring weather in Denver can be a challenge for any commercial building owner. From sudden hailstorms and torrential rains to occasional snowfall and extreme winds, it can be daunting to adequately prepare for unforeseen weather events. However, no matter how careful you are, there are instances when the elements can take their toll on your building, especially on your roof. As a result, it is essential to take proactive measures to protect your commercial roof during Denver's spring weather.
Monitor Roof Drains
Heavy rains can cause significant damage to your roof drains, leading to clogs that prevent the free flow of water. As a result, water accumulates on your roof and can cause damage to your roofing membranes, resulting in leaks. Blocked gutters and downspouts can lead to overflowing water resulting in damage. As a preventative measure, make sure your roof drains are working correctly and are free of blockages.
Denver has recently experienced massive weather patterns that can overwhelm downspouts. Torrential driving rains can cause various problems for your roof; the most common problem is roof drains backing up due to plugged drain pipes or a blockage in the subsequent drain lines owned by the municipality. Often downspouts are not big enough to handle the quantity of water that the Denver area can experience in the spring, and this causes a backup under roof membranes. If this happens, call us immediately on our 24/7 Emergency hotline: 303-623-4166.
Check for Debris
In spring, debris, such as leaves and branches, can accumulate on your roof, gutters, and downspouts. Monitor your roof and gutters regularly, and remove any debris that could damage your roofing system. Check for any trees or shrubs that could cause blockages or damage by trimming or entirely removing them.
