One of the many roofing services we offer is roof repair. Roof leaks occur when water has entered the building through the roofing materials. Causes usually include one or more of the following: old roofing materials that have become deteriorated, individuals or equipment traffic across the roof, accidentally causing damage, material failure, improper installation, building movement and Mother Nature.
Roof leaks should be addressed as soon as they are discovered to avoid damage to the surrounding roofing materials, building structure and contents below the problem area. Repair methods and products vary based on the type of roofing materials that are present, location of the problem and weather conditions. It is always important to use compatible materials and eliminate wet roofing materials whenever possible to avoid premature failure and deterioration of the system.
When allowing someone to travel across your roof, it may be in your best interest to have a knowledgeable roofing mechanic escort them to ensure proper precautions are taken. If a roofing professional is present and a puncture should occur, it can be repaired before water is able to enter the system and leak.
Commercial and industrial roofs can be repaired in most situations - however, repairs can be difficult on old, deteriorated materials. Should a building begin to experience multiple leaks, roof maintenance or replacement should be considered as a more efficient, cost effective and permanent option. Following general maintenance guidelines, along with annual inspections and cleaning of debris, can help eliminate leaks on serviceable roofs.
