Older commercial roofs that have not been inspected recently may be in need of re-roofing or roof restoration. Flat roofs are especially prone to leaks and damage, though even metal roofs can develop rust issues. It’s wise to have your commercial roof inspected regularly to catch problems early, especially after a heavy storm. Once a leak develops, it can go months before someone notices, leading to more extensive and costly repairs. If you’re inspecting your own roof, look out for:
Remember to be careful about where you walk on your commercial roof. Many roofing materials are not designed to support the weight and damage from regular foot traffic, and you don’t want to damage your own roof! If you spot any of these problems on your commercial roof, call the professionals at Firehouse Roofing for a more comprehensive inspection. We can determine the extent of the damage and whether it requires re-roofing or a few minor repairs. If the damage is extremely severe and your roof is more than 15 years old, you may need a full roof replacement.
