Types of Commercial Roof Damage

You can catch some forms of roof damage with a visual inspection. These types of damage include:

  • Loose flashing: Roof seams are covered by flashing to prevent water infiltration. If your flashings are loose, water can easily seep into your roofing system.
  • Cracks and tears: As your roof ages, it will experience cracks and tears that may lead to further problems and water damage.
  • Punctures: These easy-to-miss holes in your roof are caused by sharp objects, such as screws and debris.
  • Roof membrane issues: Your roof membrane may experience various types of damage, including bubbling, peeling, rips and coming unattached.

If you notice water leaking into your building, you may assume the leak is due to a roofing issue. While many water leaks come from roofing damage, not all of them do. Roofing systems can be complex, and water may travel along the roof deck and pipes from other locations. Tracking down a leak can be difficult — that’s where we come in. As professional roofing contractors, we can identify the problem and offer solutions.

Causes of Damage

Commercial roofs can experience damage due to a variety of reasons, some preventable and some not. Common sources of damage include:

A drainage system is essential to protecting your roof. Without one, water will pool and eventually seep into your building.

Ventilation helps humid air escape to decrease condensation. Minimal or no ventilation will contribute to the buildup of water, which can damage your roof and building.

Consistent preventive maintenance can extend your roof’s life and lessen the damage you need to repair. Letting minor issues go unaddressed can lead to costly and time-consuming problems later.

High-quality roofing contractors will ensure your roof is installed correctly so you can enjoy lasting performance. Improper installation can lead to expensive damages in the future.

Some commercial roofs experience a lot of foot traffic. Depending on your roof’s material, your roof may deteriorate and experience more damage due to frequent use.

All roofs have a certain life span. Normal wear and tear, such as cracks and peeling, can lead to water damage and other significant issues. 

Roofs are exposed to all kinds of weather events and extreme temperatures. Storms, high winds, heavy rains and hail can cause cracks, punctures, rips and water damage.
