Signs of roof damage in commercial roofs aren’t always obvious. This is why it’s important to have your roof inspected and maintained regularly. Doing so will also help ensure the safety and comfort of your building’s occupants.
Here’s how you can tell you need a roof repair or replacement.
Mold Inside the Building
Mold is a sign that water is leaking from your roof. This problem will only persist if you fail to address its root cause. Keep in mind that inhaling large amounts of mold spores can have negative effects on one’s health. If you notice signs of mold growth in your building, such as dark stains on the walls and ceilings and musty smell, contact a roofing professional for an inspection.
Water Stains on Ceilings and Walls
There’s a high chance your roof is leaking if there are yellowish or brownish spots on ceilings and walls, especially on the upper floors of the building. Even newer roofs can experience this problem. If you have an older system, it can be a sign that you need a roof replacement. HVAC equipment and excessive foot traffic can also cause leaks in commercial roofs.
Obvious Signs of Damage
Visible holes in your roof should be repaired immediately. Bubbling can occur in single-ply roofing due to age and improper installation. If your flat roof seems uneven, it’s best to contact an experienced roofing contractor for assistance. Low spots on your roof can cause ponding, which will eventually cause issues with the material and allow water to penetrate your interior.
