Most people don’t think about their roof until there has been a storm or water suddenly starts leaking from the ceilings, but proper roof design, installation and maintenance is one of the easiest ways to protect your business from the most common weather related claims.

One of our insurance company partners, Utica National Insurance, makes available a Best Practices Guide for Commercial Roofs. The study was done by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety and includes nearly everything you’d want or need to know about commercial roofs, including:

  • Hail Resistance
  • Wind Resistance
  • Sealing Against Water Intrusion
  • Type of Coverings
  • High-Wind Rated Shingles
  • Wildfire Protective Roofs

The study also includes a checklist for selecting and hiring a roofing contractor.

We hope these tips help you make sure your business roof is designed and installed properly. To make sure its insured properly, give us a call today to discuss.
