A commercial property’s roofing system must always be in top condition in order to make sure the harsh weather does not disrupt business operations. That said, you should keep an eye on these four telltale signs so that you can have your commercial roof fixed ASAP before the repair costs start eating into your overheads.
Bumps on the Surface
Does the roof have a few bumps on the surface? For flat commercial roofs, these small bumps could be air or water pockets. Air pockets have a negative effect on the surface, making the material more brittle. On the other hand, water pockets trap moisture that can lead to water damage beneath the surface.
A warped roofing surface is usually caused by constant expansion and contraction due to temperature changes. There’s also a chance that wind damage could lift the edge of the roof, causing it to get warped along the seams. Warped sections of the roof have to be replaced or re-sealed to prevent water from getting inside.
Puncture holes are a serious sign of your commercial roof getting damaged. This type of problem is often caused by excessive foot traffic, especially when the people carrying out the inspections are not trained professionals. Puncture holes are often filled up and patched, but severe cases may warrant replacing an entire section.
Indoor Water Spots
Some signs of roofing problems are found elsewhere in the building. If you see mold or water stains on the ceiling and walls, it could indicate that water from outside is leaking through the roof. Hail damage can create puncture holes on your roofs, some of which could lead to indoor leaks.
