The roof on your commercial building is protecting a huge investment. Whether you run a business from your building or lease the space to other business owners, you need it to stay in good shape. Do you know what signs indicate that the roof needs immediate attention? The following are three to get you started.
Some leaks are sneaky, and others are quite noticeable. Some things to look for are stained walls, both inside and outside the building. You may notice streaks that seem to begin at the roofline and work their way down. You may also notice stains on the ceiling, indicating there is pooling water that is beginning to seep through. Stains often point out a smaller leak.
Another sign you have a leak, is actual water flowing from the ceiling inside or the soffit outside. This could indicate a more serious leak, making it more important that you have it inspected immediately.
- Poor Workmanship
Whether the roof was installed improperly to begin with, or you’ve had some poor repairs done, your commercial roof won’t be efficient unless it is in good repair. It’s important that you hire the professionals who have the right tools and products to get the job done right. If your roof is in disrepair at all, it’s time to call in a commercial roofer.
- Standing Water
There are many commercial buildings with flat roofs. If yours is one of those, be sure you periodically check for standing water. This could occur because the materials weren’t installed correctly, or the building has structural damage of some sort. It could also be due to clogged drains. Ponding water will create further damage, so it’s important to get it taken care of right away.
