Is Your Commercial Roof Ready For The Rainy Season?
The rainy seasons can damage your commercial roofing and this damage will be worse and cost even more money if there were pre-existing cracks or tears before the weather gets here. It is important to ensure your roof is repaired and in optimal condition before the rain and snow arrive. Failing to get the roof fixed ahead of time will not only cost you more money but the damage could end up being irreparable. Commercial roofing has a flat design that puts it at greater risk for damage. Cold weather can easily make worse existing cracks and these cracks or tears increase the risk of internal damage as well. Roof repairs are not cheap, but they will definitely be more affordable when done before the rainy season. Protect the value of your building and your investment by ensuring your commercial roof is in optimal condition before the winter arrives.
Prepping For The Cold
Repairs before rain and snow damage are cheaper than a full roof replacement. During the winter, the continuous cycle of water thawing and freezing causes the most damage to your commercial roof. Existing damage to the outer material allows melted snow or rain into the roof and as the weather gets colder, this water can freeze. Water also collects on flat roofing very easily and can freeze into a lake of ice overnight. This additional weight can be too much for your roof to bear. Icy roof lakes can cause serious structural damage and the water that made its way through the cracks into the internal parts of the roof causes further cracking as it freezes and expands. Water that reaches the internal components of a roofing system also causes mold and other interior damage. Ceiling and interior repairs are costly and more challenging than repairing the flat exterior of a flat roof, so you want to ensure all repairs are complete before the weather turns cold.
