The roof is the most efficient place for many industrial, commercial and institutional buildings to install sizeable commercial HVAC units or other mechanical equipment. However, improperly installed rooftop equipment that is not watertight will harm your commercial roofing system and lead to expensive repairs.
Like a roof, the rooftop equipment will also need proper maintenance. Damage to your roof can occur from a variety of sources. The prolonged foot traffic from maintenance staff or service technicians, dropped tools, the misuse of access panels that can puncture your roof and the use of specific cleaning agents or lubricating oils can also damage sensitive commercial roof membranes.
