Most common problems of any building’s roof are often preventable through planning. Design quality, installation, products, maintenance, roof use, abuse and weather affect a roof’s longevity. This is true not only for roofing but for gutters as well.
Here, Hinkle Roofing discusses common commercial roof issues as well as how to deal with them.
Leaks, whatever the size and cause, can become bigger problems if not given immediate attention. Improper commercial roofing installation is a common cause. Unfortunately, it may not be noticeable until it’s already too late. To avoid leaks, we reinforce roof joints with Duro-Last. It is ideal for quick installations, as the material is custom-manufactured to the roof’s size. It requires fewer seams and eliminates on-site measuring and cutting during installation.
Bad Roof Repairs
Paying for roof repairs that do not solve the problem is worse than a bad installation. When you rely on inexperienced contractors, they will only make matters worse. Ask for manufacturer certifications to install and repair your roof. We have a long-standing partnership with the Duro-Last team. They are the leading provider of commercial roofing solutions. As such, we can give you the best repairs that not only solve the problem but prevent it from returning. We also provide quality replacement windows.
Ponding Water and Poor Drainage
Ponding is common in flat and low-slope roofs, especially ones with poor drainage. Left unresolved, it may cause structural damage. We can identify low areas on your roof and water stains that show where water might pool. We can resolve the issue if you decide you need a new roof. We will add roof drains or use tapered roof insulation to address poor drainage. We’ll also ensure proper flashing as they can be a source of leaks.
