The Common Causes of Commercial Roofing Issues

Your roof is your commercial property’s first line of defense against the elements. By understanding the types of problems your roof may have and investing in prompt and thorough roof repair, you help keep your roof in prime condition for longer.

The Common Causes of Commercial Roofing Issues

These are the most common problems commercial roofs face:

Leaks and Excessive Moisture

Leaks can occur in both residential and commercial roofs. While there are many things that can cause a leak, a common cause in commercial properties is the improper fastening of flashing details. Constant exposure to water can lead to excessive moisture buildup, which, in turn, speeds up the degradation of the roof.

Blow-Offs, Tenting and Billowing

Poorly installed flashing can also lead to open seams and laps in the roof. When high winds hit your building, blow-offs occur. Compromised wind resistance also occurs as an effect of inadequate curing on the roofing system.

Poor Installation

It’s crucial to work with experienced, professional roofers right from the start. Otherwise, you run the risk of improper installation and subpar workmanship. These two factors can lead to roofing problems down the road that will require costly repairs or even premature replacement.

Lack of Maintenance

Sticking to a rigid maintenance schedule is one of the most important aspects of roof care. Doing so will enables you to identify and repair minor roofing problems before they escalate and cause major damage. It also helps extend your roof’s service life.
