Here are some of the most common issues you may experience with your commercial roof:
Much like any roof type, your commercial roof is subject to wear and tear. This is due to weather conditions, the environment you may be located in and aging. Roof leaks are a common problem for commercial roofing, especially in areas that receive quite a bit of precipitation throughout the year. These leaks can be caused by foot traffic damage, a lack of a proper moisture barrier, the wearing out of your roof coating, hail damage as well as poor installation. Leaks that are not tended to can cause damage to the structure of your commercial roof and the building as a whole.
Due to the size of major business warehouses and buildings, it is quite common for commercial roofs to be flat. While flat roofing is quite economical and durable, they do have their downfalls. One of the most common downfalls of flat roofing is the accumulation of standing water. Standing water occurs as a result of poor installation and bad drainage systems. It can also be caused by blocked and broken gutters. Standing water can lead to the deterioration of your roof materials and water leaking into your building.
Jacksonville, FL is no stranger to storms and the damage that these weather giants can cause. Things like heavy rains, severe winds and hail are all-weather elements that can inflict severe damage on your commercial roof. While we can’t prevent storm damage we can tend to the damage caused by these storms as soon as possible.
Lack of maintenance
Like all things, commercial roofs require regular maintenance. Tending to minor issues and repairing any faults is vital to the survival of your roof. Regularly maintaining your roof and keeping it in working condition will cost you a lot less than having to replace an entire roof every ten years or so.
