Maintenance and repairs are often required for industrial roofing, and it’s vital that you use a specialist roofing contractors such as JDB Industrial Roofing to carry out these repairs. Here is a quick guide to the main types of maintenance, repairs and treatments that are often required for industrial roofing:

Asbestos Roof Services

Asbestos is often present in industrial roofing, and if you find that your building contains asbestos then you may have to get it removed. Even if you do not require asbestos roofing replacement services, you may require repair work to be carried out, and where asbestos is present it is essential that you hire a contractor who is experienced and more importantly qualified to deal with asbestos.


If you have rooflights in your commercial property, which allow natural light to enter the building, you may find that over time these become discoloured or cracked. If this happens, not only does it look unsightly, but you may find that you end up paying more for your lighting as a result.

Rooflight maintenance from JDB Industrial Roofing can help to prolong the lifespan of your rooflights and reduce lighting bills in the process.


When the guttering on industrial roofing becomes clogged up due to the collection of debris, this can also lead to the collection of rainwater and sludge. When this happens, it can lead to corrosion and can cause leaks or even structural damage. As a result, it is essential that you get your guttering and drainpipes cleaned on a regular basis to avoid the problems that can occur if they are left unattended.

Roof Sheeting

Roof sheeting can become corroded over time if it is not properly maintained, and this can cause leaks and other problems to occur, not to mention health and safety issues. Regular inspections of your industrial roof can often prevent a small roof repair project from turning into a major roof replacement project. The team at JDB Industrial Roofing have extensive experience in a whole host of roof sheet corrosion and edge lap treatments, roof sheeting repairs and full roof replacements.
