Commercial roof leaks are basically inevitable. However, the quicker you address the issue the better off you will be in the long run. There are some common failure points of your commercial roof.
Penetrations – Holes that are cut to accomodate drains, vent pipes, HVAC components, skylights, roof hatches and antennas are called penetrations. This is typically the weakest points on the roof, causing them to be the most vulnerable places for water to enter the building. These areas must be properly sealed and maintained.
Seams – This is where sheets of roofing material come together. Regardless of what type of roofing material you have installed, all roofs have seams. The fasteners holding the roofing material together, or the seams themselves, may separate over time due
Pooling Water – Rainwater or other water from precipitation that has collected on a roof, but not drained within 48 hours following the weather event is a reason for concern. This may be a sign of an issue or issues with your roof’ drainage system.
Membrane Failure – Commercial roof membranes can spilt, crack, tear or exposes open laps. Changes in temperature, UV penetration, wind, debris, excessive wear or freeze-thaw cycles are common causes of membrane failure.
