The roof of a commercial building is often out of sight and out of mind for many business owners. However, neglecting its maintenance and repair can lead to significant problems down the line. Commercial roofs are exposed to the elements year-round, making them susceptible to various issues that can compromise their integrity. In this blog post, we will discuss some common commercial roof issues, how to identify them, and the importance of addressing them promptly.
One of the most common commercial roof problems is leaks. Leaks can occur for various reasons, including damaged or aging roofing materials, poor installation, or severe weather conditions. Signs of a roof leak may include water stains on ceilings, damp or discolored walls, and pooling water on the roof’s surface. Detecting and fixing leaks early is crucial to prevent structural damage and mold growth inside the building.
2) Ponding Water
Ponding water refers to the accumulation of water on a flat or low-sloped roof. This can happen due to poor drainage or the roof’s inability to shed water efficiently. Over time, standing water can cause roof materials to deteriorate, leading to leaks and structural damage. Regular inspection and proper drainage maintenance are essential to prevent ponding water.
3) Roof Membrane Damage
Commercial roofs are often covered with a protective membrane, which can be made of materials like TPO, EPDM, or PVC. These membranes are designed to withstand the elements, but they can become damaged over time. Common causes of membrane damage include exposure to UV rays, extreme temperatures, foot traffic, and debris. Inspecting the membrane for cracks, tears, or punctures and addressing them promptly can extend its lifespan and prevent leaks.
4) Blistering and Bubbling
Blistering and bubbling occur when air or moisture becomes trapped between the roofing layers, causing the roofing material to bubble up. This can weaken the roof’s integrity and lead to more significant issues if left untreated. Proper ventilation and insulation can help prevent blistering and bubbling, and damaged areas should be repaired to maintain the roof’s performance.
5) Flashing Problems
Flashing is the material used to seal joints and transitions on a commercial roof, such as around vents, chimneys, and skylights. Over time, flashing can deteriorate or become loose, allowing water to penetrate the roof. Regularly inspecting and maintaining flashing is crucial to prevent leaks and water damage.
6) Poor Installation
In some cases, commercial roof issues stem from poor initial installation. This can include improper sealing of seams, inadequate insulation, or the use of subpar roofing materials. It’s essential to hire reputable roofing contractors with experience in commercial roofing to ensure a proper installation that can withstand the test of time.
7) Weather Damage
Extreme weather conditions, such as hailstorms, heavy snow, and strong winds, can cause significant damage to commercial roofs. Inspecting the roof after severe weather events and promptly addressing any visible damage is essential to prevent further deterioration.
