A commercial roofing system requires regular maintenance and repair to ensure its longevity and performance. It is, however, inevitable for the roof to undergo aging and get battered by the elements.
In today’s blog post, our expert roofers talk about the red flags indicating the need to replace a commercial roof.
This form of damage appears as tears or holes on the roofing membrane. It occurs for various reasons, including carelessness when stepping foot on the roof and flying debris. It is a problem for commercial property owners because it exposes the roof to potential water intrusion, which could compromise the whole system. Too many punctures necessitate an immediate roof replacement project.
They form when gas gets trapped within the roofing system, causing it to expand when exposed to sunlight. It can be easily distinguished thanks to its long and thin raised areas resembling bubbles. As soon as blisters become apparent, call our expert pros for a roof inspection.
Improper roof installations are the leading cause of open laps, which may compromise the whole system. The roofer may have disregarded the application of adhesive on an entire lap or might have had insufficient preparations on the roof surface.
Loose Roof Fasteners
It is a common problem found in roofing systems that are attached mechanically. As strong winds blow through the property, the roof’s fasteners begin to move back and forth, enlarging the hole around them. Membrane punctures could occur when ignored.
