Normally, when you notice a leak inside a building, you should first inspect your flat roof for any signs of damage. However, it’s not the only possible culprit here.
Restrooms are one of the most used rooms in a commercial building so broken toilets aren’t uncommon. You shouldn’t worry too much, though: replacing a toilet’s broken parts is fairly easy. Just make sure to have a plumber replace the broken parts as soon as possible.
Damaged Bathroom Floors
The ceiling under your bathroom has a waterproofing membrane to prevent water from dripping onto your interior. However, if it’s of low quality or is damaged, damp patches might start to appear on the ceiling. If you see any damp patches, have a contractor inspect that floor right away.
Clogged and Worn Gutters
The surface of your flat roof doesn’t have to suffer damage to cause leaks. If you don’t find any issues in the interior, try checking your roof’s gutters. Blockages could be preventing rainwater from flowing to the downspouts, causing rainwater to spill onto your roof or the building’s facade. Hail or storm damage might have left holes in your gutters as well.
Installing seamless gutters can also help reduce the risk of leaks. If you’re planning to install new gutters, our seamless aluminum gutters have baked-on enamel finishes that don’t need to be repainted to retain their colors. Plus, we craft our gutters according to the measurements of our customers’ houses so they’re guaranteed to be a great fit.
