What Are The Common Types Of Commercial Flat Roof Repairs?

Roofs are complex systems and require the expertise of an experienced professional to determine whether it’s time for repair or replacement. Integrity Roofers can provide a thorough assessment of the current state of your commercial roof if you notice damage on your roof’s exterior or water stains in your building.

4 Types of Commercial Flat Roof Repairs

Shingle Repairs

The shingles on your roof are the first thing that weather will touch. They need to be in good condition so your building can stay warm and dry. Common Problems with shingles are many-sided. The first problem is granule loss. When shingles become bald, water will enter the roof more easily because the granules are what helps water move from the roof to the downspout. When spotted, cracks, curls, and broken shingles are cause for concern. This means that the decking doesn’t receive complete coverage. Water will soak into the wood and cause rot. You can bet on the fact that some shingles will lift from their original position, allowing water to leak into your home. Pay attention to the valleys of the roof. The shingles here wear out faster than anywhere else because they are responsible for the majority of rainwater runoff. These areas are prone to leaks, which can be problematic if ignored.

Flashing Repairs

Professional roofing contractors use zinc or galvanized alloy to seal areas around chimneys and dormers. They also seal any area where the roof meets a vertical plane. Some contractors are not up to the task, and flashing can lift if a seal is missed. Water only needs a small opening to enter, and expensive repairs are the result of substandard work.

Gutter Repairs and Maintenance

Rain gutters are located at the edge of your roof to help move water down to the ground. They will also collect anything from the roof, such as twigs, leaves, and other debris. This will clog the channels. The gutters were not designed to hold excessive weight. Once the material gets wet, it becomes heavier and can freeze during winter temperatures. Building owners are responsible for keeping the gutters free of debris to prevent costly repairs or water from spilling out and creating safety hazards. Integrity Roofers recommends a bi-annual gutter cleaning that is done in conjunction with your roof inspection. This will keep your gutters performing at their best.

Leak Repair

Water stains, pooling, and puddles on the floor are all signs that there are leaks. If stains or streams of water appear, they should alert a building owner to the fact that damage has been done. You will need to hire a professional roofing contractor once you have identified the problem. They can help find the source of the leak, and then make the necessary repairs.
