Summer storms equate to more commercial roof repair calls. This is because we often get a lot of rain in a short time accompanied by wind. When that happens, we’re often asked, “Why, with so little rain, does the leak seem so bad?”

Wind and rain together can magnify small roof leaks – both on businesses and homes. If you have steep slope roofing with asphalt shingles, the wind can blow up the shingles, allowing water to saturate the underlayment which can lead to leaks. When this happens over time, the underlayment can break down causing water to penetrate your roofing system. If you have a flat roofing system, even a small amount of rain that pools on the roof and can be blown up against a vent or HVAC unit and penetrate even the smallest opening, resulting in a leak.

Signs You Need Roof Repair

There are signs other than the obvious one of a roof leak that you need commercial roof repair. Depending on your building, you may have shingles, metal, TPO, EPDM or another flat roofing product on your roof. Some buildings have a combination of materials. The signs vary between steep slope and flat roofing. Steep slope roofing with shingle signs include missing and misaligned shingles or shingles with dents or breaks. If you notice any of those on your business’s roof, call your commercial roof repair company.

Flat roofing has different signs. Those signs are nearly impossible to see from the ground level. Someone at your company should be visually checking the roof at least a few times a year. Things they should check for on a flat roof include:

  • Ponding (aka standing water)
  • Discolored areas on the roof
  • Bubbles in the roof coating material
  • Missing or loose flashing
  • Splitting or cracked seams

If your accountant comments that your energy usage has gone up recently, that may also be a sign of an issue with your roofing. If you don’t have anyone willing to go on the roof, ask your commercial roofing company about a commercial maintenance contract.
