A commercial roofing system must be regularly maintained and repaired to ensure its longevity and performance. Over time, however, it may manifest signs indicating that it is nearing the end of its lifespan and would require an immediate replacement. These signs can be found inside the property and on the roof itself.
Here are the five signs that tell your commercial roof is in trouble.
1. Water Stains on Your Building Interior
While damaged plumbing can also cause these to appear, it could also mean there’s an active leak on your roof. You may notice new and growing brownish spots on ceilings and walls, particularly those on the top floors.
2. Presence of Mold or Bugs
If you have recurring problems with mold or insects in your property and you’re spending more money on remediation or pest control, it could mean one thing: water might be infiltrating your roof. Hire a reputable roofing maintenance contractor for a thorough roof inspection as soon as possible.
3. Visible Leaks During Rainfall
Experiencing ceiling leaks means that your property already has the two previously mentioned signs of a compromised commercial roof. Immediate attention is needed.
4. Gaps and Holes
These obvious problems need to be addressed upon discovery. Open laps, which are a result of insufficient preparations and improper roof installations, may expose the roof to water intrusion, increasing the likelihood of damage.
5. Material Warping
Aging, wear and tear due to weather, and improper installation are the top reasons commercial roofs develop punctures, blisters and other forms of material distortion. Any of these can happen due to moisture buildup under the roofing membrane.
