In my experience the roof is one thing the majority of buyers and tenants with triple net leases have most of the attention on and legitimate so. Proper maintenance and routine inspections are strongly advised.
Typical commercial and industrial roof is a flat roof. It means that it has less than 2-inch slope or fall for each flat foot. Modern standards require all roofing have a minimum of 1/4 inch of slope for each flat foot. This was rarely the case to cover before the 70s.
The majority of any roof built in the 1970s and before it is almost always very flat and do not pour water well. This leaves areas of standing water. Standing water is a potential problem for two reasons; # 1 is when the holders of water has a way of finding a weak spot and escape.
# 2 is standing water collects dirt and debris that will make roofing materials deteriorate more quickly and escape quicker. (Water that is stopped is any water that is 1/2 advances to inches deep or more and do not flowing or there is more than 48 hours after the rain has stopped.)

My experience is the one area which can prolong almost all aspects of any building. Proper roof maintenance is the insurance cheaper there is. If each owner made that a roofer should roof every 2-3 years (it once at least 5 years) and repair any as well as it does all the normal preventive maintenance, a roof can last well beyond its expected life.
The shelf life provided generally a flat roof is approximately 13 – 17 years with many materials for roofing, if it is maintained correctly, lasting 20 years.
The State of California has energy requirements that are listed in what is called Title 24. These are energy needs assigned by mandate for each building in the State. (Noted that the implementation of these mandates is not always constant.)
It covers many areas and roofing requires any surplus of the roof a “conditioned space”, namely office space, to have a reflective coating on it to help reflect heat and save energy. This material can come in many forms of white plastic vinyl spray in layers and others.
