In the winter, Colorado roofs must withstand extreme weather. This is why the Columbine Roofing team has a few recommendations for business owners and property managers. Before winter arrives, consider a commercial roof inspection – here, you’ll learn more about why.
Colorado winters accompany unexpected snowfall, fierce winds, and icy rain. Your roof is exposed to all of these weather elements and often reacts to them.
Commercial roofing materials react to the temperature and weight of these weather elements. This build-up of moisture and pressure can lead to compromised venting, damaged roof surfaces, and dips that prevent proper water drainage. All of this can spell disaster mid-winter.
Before winter arrives, a professional roof inspection can evaluate any weak areas or roof repairs that will help your commercial roof withstand the winter damage and leak-free.
Commercial roofs are held up by durable beams. When access weight is applied to them, their integrity can be compromised.
Unchecked and weakened support beams can cause leaks. If left alone, support beams can end up costing business owners thousands. This is why we recommend regular inspections as a way to protect your investment and wallet!
Before snow builds up on your roof, we consider debris removal.
Debris, like leaves and fallen branches, adds access weight to your roof. Then, when it’s all covered by snow, those pounds pile on (and up).
It’s also important to consider how to remove debris in a way that doesn’t scratch or damage your roof. Commercial roofs require special care because of their delicate draining systems. Scratches, dents, and dips all impact how your roof funnels water.

Due to the unpredictability, it’s important to have a snow removal plan for your commercial roof.
