Given the magnitude of a commercial roof replacement project, property owners and managers are keen on making sure that the project is carried out as smoothly as possible. However, many might not even realize that they are due for one. So, how do you know it’s time to call a roofer for a replacement? Look for these signs.
Pooling water occurs when water is unable to drain off properly from a commercial flat roof. While extended exposure to water is a problem because it hastens deterioration in roofing material, standing water is also an issue because it can result in structural failure. How? Water can get heavy and, when it is spread out across a flat roof, can immensely strain a roofing structure.
Another way moisture can be a problem is when it makes its way through a commercial roofing system, resulting in interior damage due to leaks. Sometimes, the damage is cosmetic like mold and mildew growth on ceilings, but left long enough to fester, moisture exposure can also lead to rot that can compromise structures. Interior moisture damage is a definite sign you should be getting in touch with a commercial roofing company.
Avoiding Premature Replacement
Routine maintenance is the best way to make the most of a commercial roof because it lets you catch small issues early, allowing you to address them right away and keep them from worsening, which can lead to a need for premature replacement.
