5 Signs of Commercial Roof Damage

If you own or run a business, you understand the importance of maintaining your property; this includes making sure your roof is in optimal condition. One of the easiest ways to do this is by regularly scheduling roof maintenance and considering a roof coating if you don’t already have one. Nevertheless, many times this gets away from us in dealing with the demands of day-to-day work.

If you are concerned that you have been neglecting the upkeep of your roof, contact us for a free examination and estimate.

Telling Signs of Roof Damage:

  • Cracking or Blistering
    Take a quick glance for unexplained cracks, bubbles, or blisters on your roof’s surface. This can indicate that there may be pockets of air or moisture trapped between the roof membrane and deck or between layers of the membrane itself. This could potentially worsen over time if left untreated, leading to more serious problems.
  • Mold and Odor
    If you are noticing unexplained musty odors or notice visible mold inside of your commercial property, seek professional help as soon as possible. Not only might this indicate a roof leak, but it can be potentially dangerous for you and your employees if left untreated.
  • Sagging or Stains
    Inside of your commercial property, regularly be on the lookout for stained or damaged ceiling tiles, watermarks, or bulging patches on the ceiling interior walls that can indicate water damage from a faulty roof. Similarly, a sagging ceiling can also be a sure sign that your roof needs to be looked at and repaired.
  • Standing or Pooling Water
    It is normal to have some existing ponding water after rainfall or a particularly heavy storm. However, if it is still there after 48-72 hours, it may indicate a larger roof or drainage problem. If left untreated, this can seep into your building, lead to leaks, and weaken your roofing system overall.
  • Clogged Drains
    It is crucial to ensure your roof is draining properly, as clogged drains can contribute to pooling water and further roof damage. You can do this by inspecting the exterior downspouts during rainfall.
