Commercial Roofing Repair Specialists Discuss Common Roofing Issues

The roof is one of the most important elements of any commercial property. While it can be easily overlooked and written off as unimportant, a neglected roof can present significant issues for a business that may not be able to keep its investments safe and secured from inclement weather.

"As the owner of a commercial property, you need to be on the lookout for all of the common issues that commercial roofs tend to face," states Laura Cameron, a representative of Brian Dawson Roofing & Construction. She explains, "Even the smallest of leaks can escalate and cause bigger problems down the line. They can threaten to run you out of business by damaging your inventory, expensive equipment or causing water damage to the structure that will put everyone at risk. You need to ensure that all repair work is done before the damage becomes too significant, though you need to know what to look out for so you can decide when is the best time to have your roof repaired."

Brian Dawson Roofing & Construction explains that leaks are the most common issue often found in commercial properties. They can occur at any time and in the smallest of places. While they are typically easy enough to spot when they leave water spots behind, invisible leaks can go unnoticed for months until the roof gives in. Regular maintenance programs will reduce the risks of leaks. More information on this can be found here:

Defective flashing is another issue often found on commercial properties. Flashing is used to protect the seams and joints of the roof from excess water, preventing water damage from occurring. A roof's natural expansion will cause the flashing material to tear or break, especially during seasonal changes. This is harder to spot than other roofing issues, and only a professional roofing contraction can assess whether defective flashing can be repaired.

If the flashing was installed incorrectly, other issues may arise. Poorly attached flashing is more susceptible to being lifted or even blown off if strong winds occur. This can cause heavy damage to the roof and be a serious hazard to surrounding buildings. In this case, the only solution is to have the flashing re-done by a professional.

Another cause of concern for owners of commercial properties is roof blistering. Bubbles or blisters often indicate that the roof was not installed properly, and pockets of moisture were left at the time of installation. These must be uncovered and treated immediately, as they can quickly escalate and cause further damage to the roofing material.

The best way to fix these issues is to hire a trusted roofing expert to complete the roofing project. Brian Dawson Roofing & Construction is one of the most reputable roofing companies in Wentzville.
