Common Commercial Roofing Problems
While residential and commercial roofing share many of the same properties and purposes, there are also several differences between the two. Since 1988, ABCO Roofing, has been repairing, replacing, inspecting and providing warranties for commercial roofs throughout the Ft. Worth and Dallas areas. Additionally, we also like to inform our customers of the steps they can take to better care for their roofs to extend their life while lowering their short- and long-term costs.
Prevalent Roofing Problems for Business Owners
Before we launch into the most common roofing problems experienced by business owners, we’d first like to express how essential it is that you keep up with roofing maintenance. While regular maintenance won’t keep you from experiencing any roofing issues whatsoever, it most certainly goes a long way in keeping those issues from getting out of hand and eating through your funds, funds that you can funnel back into your business.
Some of the issues you might experience with your roof include:
- Standing water, which is often attributed to either a block or clog in a drain, but can also result from poor mopping during the installation of a hot bituminous roofing system
- Poor flashing or pitch pans, which is also the leading cause of roof leaks due to the shrinking and expanding of the flashing
- Decreased wind uplift resistance, which can lead to blown-off chimney caps and vents as well as the eventual infiltration of water
- Blocked drains, which are the result of tree branches and leaves not being cleared from around a drain cover
