Your commercial roof should always be kept in good condition since it plays a crucial role in protecting your building, its occupants and all the valuable items and equipment inside. Regular roof inspections can help you detect problems early and prevent severe damage to your roofing. But during those times in between your scheduled inspections, there are a few signs that you can look out for, including:
Leaks During Rainy Weather
If rainwater drips through your ceilings every time it rains, you’re in serious trouble. These leaks have probably been there for quite a while now, so the best thing to do at this point is to call a roofer as soon as possible. Have your roof repaired or replaced, depending on the extent of damage.
If water stains have appeared on your ceilings and walls, these could possibly be due to either damaged plumbing or roof leaks. However, if the leaks are new and creating brownish spots on ceiling tiles, these are likely to be caused by an active roof leak.
The culprit behind leaks could be aging roof material that’s already starting to break down or storm damage. A roofer can confirm the problem for you and recommend roof repair or replacement.
Mold may be caused by moisture seeping through your roof system. Of course, there are other possible reasons for mold growth, but your commercial roof should be one of the first things that you should check for hidden leaks. Make sure that you are not only addressing the symptoms and that you are identifying the actual cause of the mold.
