The good news is that we have the skills and experience to address these issues head-on, and also to provide much-needed commercial roofing maintenance to help you avoid future issues and costly repairs. That leads us to common roofing problem number one.
1– Lack of Maintenance
The most common commercial roof problem we encounter is a lack of regular roof maintenance. Roofs, just like any other part of your building, require a certain level of maintenance if you want to avoid more severe and costly issues or even total replacement sooner than you would otherwise need it. Contact our team at Horizon Roofing for commercial roof maintenance services to protect your investment.
2– Installation Issues
If your commercial roofing system has not been properly installed, you’re likely looking at trouble down the road. Poor installation increases the likelihood of roof problems that require repairs. That said, professional installation increases the lifespan of your commercial roof warding off issues that could arise due to a shoddy job. This is why it’s imperative to work with a trusted and experienced roofing contractor from the jump.
3– Improper Roofing Materials
It’s not surprising that using the wrong materials for your commercial roofing job can also lead to big problems in time. Your business and building type should be factored in when it comes to the type of roof installed on your property. Before you choose a roofing type, have a consultation with an experienced commercial roofing expert to assess your situation and needs. Our team at Horizon Roofing can help you figure out what roofing materials make the most sense for you, and help extend the life of your roofing system.
4– Pooling Water
Another common issue with commercial roofs is standing water. Leaves and debris get blown onto roofs, and build up causing materials to weaken, and sometimes blocking drains. This also goes back to proper installation. If the pitch of the roof is off, it can cause more issues with pooling water, which in turn leads to other problems, roof damage, and more necessary repairs.
5– Problems with Shrinkage
Certain roofing materials can expand and contract drastically with changes in temperature and weather. This can lead to problems, for instance, with metal roofing systems, as drip edges and flashing can shrink with the season changes. The expanding and contracting of materials can cause breaks and holes in the joints, and leave the roof susceptible to leaks.
Regardless of the state or type of your commercial roof, our team can help ensure it’s in the best condition to weather the years.
