The combined forces of weight and sharp pressure applied to an area in the roof may result in a roof puncture. This hole in the roof is a common problem in commercial roofing, which allows moisture to penetrate and damage the other parts of the roof. If left untreated, it can result to severe structural damage.
Here are the top three causes of roof punctures:
1. Roof Traffic
Believe it or not, people are the number one cause of roofing punctures. Normally, roofs can manage regular roof traffic such as repair professionals, painters, HVAC technicians or DIY homeowners who use the roof to accomplish their job. However, they may accidentally drop their tools or other harmful materials that may result in roof damage.
Birds peck at things, squirrels chew on products, rodents gnaw on building materials and raccoons may scratch the roof surface. These are just some of the ways that animals may unintentionally produce roof punctures.
3. Severe Weather Conditions
Storms or strong winds may hurl debris such as branches against the roof that may cause punctures. Hailstones can also bring about damage.
