If you own a metal building, barn, or pole building shop in Coeur d’Alene, you know just how critical it is to have a roof that is in excellent condition. Faulty roofs can cause extensive damage to other parts of the structure and can leave the contents inside your structure vulnerable to numerous other elements.
Now that summer is here in Idaho, our team at MQS, Inc. has created a short list of three key items you may want to address regarding your Coeur d’Alene metal building’s roof. Here are few things you should check off in the next month or so:
- Inspect Your Roof for Rust and Wind Damage
- Thoroughly Look for Leaks and Water Spots
- Remove Any Debris on Top of the Roof
Inspect Your Roof for Rust and Wind Damage
One of the most common causes of damage to roofs on Coeur d’Alene metal buildings is straight-line winds or wind gusts. High winds can actually bend or push metal panels off of a building’s structure while also pulling or loosening nails. Any wind damage should be repaired immediately to prevent the problems from spreading to other areas.
Be sure to check for any areas where water is pooling or puddling on the roof. Standing water can cause rust or corrosion to the roofs of metal buildings in Coeur d’Alene if it is not removed in a timely fashion.
Thoroughly Look for Leaks and Water Spots
If you are near your Coeur d’Alene post frame building during a heavy downpour, go inside and look up at the ceiling. When rain is falling on the roof, this is the ideal time to look for potential leaks and drips from above. If you notice any problem areas, grab a bucket and mark the spot, so you know where to do your repairs once the rain stops.
Remove any Debris on Top of the Roof
Once the storms have cleared, there may be things like tree branches, pine needles, twigs, and leaves that have found their way on top of your roof. Make sure that the roof on your pole building shop in Coeur d’Alene is clear of any heavy objects that might cause further damage. Heavy tree branches might cause the roof to sag and compromise the integrity of the entire structure.
