Is Your Commercial Roof Failing?

We don’t pay much attention to our roofs unless something goes wrong. Unlike a home where just a few people will face the problem of issues such as leaky roofs, a commercial building may have hundreds of employees who may be inconvenienced by the problem and this can only then impact on the bottom line.

With this in mind it is important to know when a problem arises so that it can be quickly repaired before things get out of hand and develop into a major problem.

To identify these problems, you should schedule regular inspections to ensure the roof is in good condition and to find any problematic areas. Some of the most common issues with the roofs of commercial properties are broadly the same as those you find in domestic properties and include leaks, loose or broken tiles, punctures to roof membranes, blistering and general wind damage.

To prevent such issues getting out of hand, it is important to hire a qualified roofing contractor to sort out these issues and put in place repairs that will last. If you are the owner of the building, then replacement materials can sometimes be sourced cheaply from reclamation yards, which is particularly the case with reclaimed roof slate.
