Flat roof inspection for maintenance and longevity
Most property owners don’t give a second thought to roofing. In other words – if it isn’t leaking, it isn’t really a problem. Clearly, this is short-term thinking, and can potentially come back to haunt. That’s why it’s important to have a regular flat roof inspection. A proactive inspection is a sure way to prevent immediate problems from escalating and longer-term problems from developing.
Naturally, the life expectancy of a flat roof is dependent various factors, particularly the severity of weather in the region. Also at play is the material composition of the roof, and here, quality roof materials can make a difference in terms of longevity. Without doubt, a routine flat roof inspection is highly recommended, even when there are no visible signs of damage or decay.
A commercial roof inspection may detect sources of roof leaks or drainage issues
In Canada, industry association data shows that a high percent of inspection issues are directly related to roof leaks and/or water penetration. Needless to say, a preventive flat roof inspection could be instrumental in identifying problems in the early stages, and addressing those problems immediately. Simply put, doing a comprehensive commercial flat roof inspection will impact roof longevity.
Property owners know that doing a visual flat roof inspection from time to time is essential to proper building maintenance. However, nothing compares with an annual roof inspection that is comprehensive, especially after an intense season of rain, snow, and ice. Astute property owners often undertake additional commercial roof inspections when weather events are more severe than usual.
Infrared Thermal Imaging Included For Commercial Roof Inspections
Thermal Imaging cameras provide our building inspectors the ability to identify defects such as hot spots, hidden wet areas and potentially missing insulation, that are often missed by average building inspections. By using an infrared thermal imaging camera, we perform commercial roof inspections and scan every flat roof to easily identify water leaks and potential roof leak locations. We also use thermal imaging to detect moisture in walls and ceilings, which can lead to mold growth. This service can be extremely valuable in preventing expensive water damage down the road.
We're committed to providing quality commercial property inspections & commercial roof inspections in Toronto that are compliant with all safety codes. We also offer a wide range of other services such as environmental inspections, electrical thermal scanning, and air barrier inspections.

Important signs to look for in a building with a flat roof
- Ponding - these are pools of water that indicate drainage problems or roofing issues
- Weakened seals – caused by deteriorating sealing materials (could be caulking or tar)
- Ineffective seams - allowing water to penetrate and be trapped under loosened seams
- Undesirable collection of leaves, garbage, and debris (even mold and mildew buildup)
- “Blistered” areas that were damaged because of severe weather/temperature extremes
- Clogged gutters and drains that can cause water overflow with associated problems
With roof inspection, a professional approach is highly recommended. Scheduling will depend on the condition of the roof, and past issues may prompt more frequent inspections. Doing it right the first time has long-term benefits - and cutting corners has long-term disadvantages. In fact, when replacing a roof, a final inspection after installation is an excellent option going forward.
With a professional inspector, property owners are assured of a level of expertise that delivers results. Professionals have the right equipment and the necessary experience to provide a very in-depth inspection. Indeed, with today’s high-tech tools (like infrared imaging), they can often identify problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye. This can be very valuable in the long run.
The benefits of preventive/proactive roof maintenance
Proper roof maintenance makes for a longer lifespan for a flat roof. This can be further assured with a roof inspection that is both preventive and proactive – one that allows for early problem diagnosis and equally early corrective measures. For property owners, especially in a commercial setting, the benefits are many, and the upfront cost of prevention makes good economic sense.
- a well maintained roof allows for lower utility bills (winter heating and summer cooling)
- proper roof maintenance, along with inspection reports, can result in a higher sale price
- a roof that’s in good condition will offer valuable peace of mind for every owner/landlord
