8 Common Commercial Roof Issues to Watch For!

Maintaining a commercial roof is essential for the longevity and functionality of your business facility. A well-maintained roof not only protects your property but also ensures the safety and comfort of your employees and customers. In this blog post, we will explore some of the most common commercial roof issues that property owners and facility managers should be aware of to prevent costly damage and ensure the structural integrity of their roofs.

1) Roof Leaks

Roof leaks are perhaps the most common and troublesome issue for commercial property owners. Leaks can lead to water damage, mold growth, and costly repairs. They often result from damaged or deteriorating roofing materials, such as cracked or missing shingles, damaged flashing, or worn-out seals around roof penetrations. Regular inspections and timely repairs are crucial to prevent leaks from causing more extensive damage.

2) Ponding Water

Ponding water occurs when water accumulates on a flat or low-slope roof and doesn’t drain properly. This issue can lead to roof deterioration, weakening of the structure, and even leaks. To address ponding water, it’s essential to ensure proper roof slope and drainage systems are in place to direct water away from the roof’s surface.

3) Roofing Material Deterioration

Commercial roofs are exposed to harsh weather conditions, including extreme heat, cold, and UV radiation. Over time, roofing materials can deteriorate, leading to cracks, blistering, and curling. Regular inspections can identify signs of material deterioration, allowing for timely repairs or replacements to extend the roof’s lifespan.

4) Punctures and Tears

Commercial roofs are susceptible to punctures and tears from various sources, including foot traffic, falling debris, and severe weather. These openings can compromise the roof’s integrity and lead to leaks. Implementing proper safety measures, such as walkway systems and regular roof inspections, can help minimize the risk of punctures and tears.

5) Roofing Membrane Damage

Single-ply roofing membranes, such as TPO, PVC, and EPDM, are popular choices for commercial roofs due to their durability and cost-effectiveness. However, these membranes can still be damaged by hail, sharp objects, or prolonged exposure to UV rays. Inspections should include an assessment of the membrane’s condition, with any damaged areas promptly repaired or replaced.

6) Poor Installation

Improper installation of roofing materials or inadequate workmanship can result in various roof problems down the line. It’s crucial to choose a reputable roofing contractor with experience in commercial roof installation. A properly installed roof will have fewer issues and a longer lifespan.

7) Clogged Drains and Gutters

Clogged drains and gutters can hinder proper water drainage, leading to ponding water and potential leaks. Regular cleaning and maintenance of these drainage systems are essential to ensure they function correctly, particularly after storms or heavy rainfall.

8) Roof Penetrations

Roof penetrations, such as vents, HVAC units, and skylights, can create weak points in the roof’s structure if not properly sealed and maintained. Regular inspections and resealing of penetrations are necessary to prevent leaks and maintain the roof’s integrity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a roof repair or full replacement?
