Maintenance

In Wisconsin your roof is exposed to rain, strong winds, heavy snow, and the winter's freezing and thawing cycle. Even the best designed and applied roofing systems will not reach full life expectancy unless the proper preventive care is exercised.

We are licensed by many major roof manufacturers for all types of roofing systems and roof guarantee claims. We have multiple full-time, dedicated maintenance and repair crews with over 100 years of roofing experience between them to assure quality workmanship.

We are available 24/7 for emergency roofing situations.

We provide comprehensive roof management plans for many of our customers and typically outline:

  • Regularly Scheduled Roof Inspections
  • Preventive Maintenance Recommendations
  • Budget Planning for Future Reroofing Work

Proactive Maintenance Program

Carlson Racine Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc. preventative maintenance program includes annual non-destructive inspections for all roof areas.  As a result of these inspections and information from your maintenance department we will establish a base line, note the condition of each roof, and list out any repairs that are necessary.

One of the most important aspects of maintaining your roof and ensuring that it remains resilient is to perform at least annual inspections of the roof. Frequent inspection and scheduled maintenance, as required under manufacturer's warrantees, can save the time and money that can be involved with emergency repairs.

It is recommended that a Carlson Racine Roofing representative walk the roof after each storm, in the spring and in the late fall prior to the onset of winter, looking for anything that might be a problem such as: 

  • Debris, clogged roof drains, physical damage from vandalism, excessive roof traffic or wind-blown debris that could create a tear, puncture, or hole in the membrane. 
  • Check coping caps to make sure that they are not disengaged from cleats, loose or missing. 
  • And any “soft spots” on the roof could be an indication of moisture-contaminated insulation. 
  • Check for any de-bonding or loose lap and flashing seams in the field of the roof or around roof curbs and penetrations. 
  • After a storm, clear debris from the roof as quickly as possible and check for any rips or punctures in the membrane.  
  • And, if any service companies have accessed the roof, ensure that they have not left even small items like screws or metal shavings that could damage the membrane.
