Have you recently invested in new business premises? If so, you will already be aware that there are dozens of things that you need to do before opening your doors to customers. For example, you will have to move in your products and set up cash registers and any other pieces of business equipment you might need. You may even need to make structural changes to the premises to turn it into a suitable business environment. But have you considered repairing, overhauling or replacing the roof? As experienced roofing contractors, we can attest that there are several compelling reasons to carry out work on your new premises’ roof before allowing customers to access the building. 

1. Safety

Before you open your doors to customers, you should do everything possible to ensure that the premises are safe. Repairing or overhauling your roof is an important part of this process. An unstable or poorly maintained roof can pose a serious hazard to employees and customers alike, so it’s worth carrying out a thorough inspection, repairs and maintenance before you open your premises to avoid any costly claims should the worst happen.

2. Aesthetic appeal

If the previous owners of your premises hadn’t refurbished or replaced the roof for a while, it may look rather unappealing. Roofing that hasn’t been properly cared for can take on an aged and damaged appearance, which can deter prospective customers. We suggest that you take steps to ensure that your new premises’ roof is aesthetically appealing before you open the building to customers. In most cases, you will only need to have minor cosmetics repairs carried out. However, in some cases, you may need to completely replace the roof.

3. Future-proofing

All roofs need to be repaired and maintained occasionally. Obviously, you don’t want to have to close your business once it’s fully operational just to repair, replace or maintain the roof. It’s therefore advisable to have roof work carried out before your business opens to the public. Why spend valuable time and trading hours on repairs later when you can sort it out now, preventing any future disruption to your employees and customers?
