Signs You Need Commercial Roofing Repair

Commercial roof repair can be more important in a business than a residential home. Not only can it cause the same type of problems, but there is the added worries over customers, inventory, and equipment. For that reason, it is important to keep taking care of any repairs as soon as they are spotted.

Here are the most common commercial roofs repairs to watch out for:

  • Energy Spikes: If you notice a spike in energy costs, it could be due to cracks or holes in the roof. Some other issues could be damaged flashing on chimneys or vents and the roof is no longer airtight.
  • Water Leaks: Leaks in the roof may not always be apparent by pooling water or dripping from the ceiling. While leaks are never good, the accumulation of moisture can cause water stains on the ceiling, equipment issues, mold, and pest infestation.
  • Damaged Ceiling Tiles: As mentioned above, ceiling tiles can become stained from water damage. It is important to also keep an eye out for sagging tiles, or bowing supports.
  • Bubbling: Many business roofs are flat, and have a single-ply roof material. Bubbling can occur when the moisture is trapped between the roof and the material below. One or two bubbles is not a big deal, yet four or more should be a cause for concern.
  • Bald Spots: If you have a pitched roof, any bold spots or missing shingles indicate you to need to have repairs completed.
  • Roof Seams: Any opening in the seam of the roof, or damage to the fastenings, a roofing technician should be contacted.
