Spotting and Dealing With Common Commercial Roofing IssuesBy Stacy Mellete
Choosing the right commercial roofing for your business establishment will help ensure that your hard-earned investments stay safe from the elements. It pays to be aware of the many factors that can shorten your roof’s service life.
Affordable Roofing Systems discusses some of the most common commercial roofing problems, such as:
Leaks and Moisture Issues
Poorly installed flashings and moisture barriers can cause roof leaks and moisture issues, respectively. Meanwhile, inadequate head and backwater laps can also allow moisture to enter your roofing system and deteriorate it overtime.
If you suspect that your building has a leaky roof, then contact us so we can conduct a thorough inspection. Once we’ve found leaks, we’ll give you a detailed assessment then conduct thorough repairs as needed.
Heavy foot traffic can scrape or cut your roof’s membrane and damage the substrate underneath it, especially single-ply or spray polyurethane foam roofing. Equipment improperly installed on your roof can also damage your roof and affect its overall performance. A good way to prevent this from happening is to limit foot traffic on your roof; you can establish a policy that only allows authorized personnel to enter the area. As with leaks, we’ll examine your roof’s overall condition and make the necessary roof repairs.
Lack of Maintenance
An unmaintained roof is more vulnerable to the effects of harsh climate conditions than regularly maintained commercial roofing. That’s why you’ll want to hire the right people to eliminate the risk of voiding any existing roofing warranties. As a GAF® Master Elite™ contractor, we have the necessary experience and training that will allow us to conduct proper maintenance for a long lasting roof.
