4 Signs It's Time to Replace Your Commercial Roof

The roofing covering your commercial property boasts a higher durability and longer lifespan than its residential counterparts, but this doesn't make it immune from damage. Generally, commercial roofing problems necessitate repair, but there are times when a full replacement is necessary.

4 Signs it's Time to Replace Your Commercial Roof

West Side Roofing Co. discusses the four tell-tale signs it's time to replace your roof.

  1. Damaged Roof Membrane The easiest way to tell is if there's considerable and irreparable damage to the roof membrane. Strong winds or storm damage will eventually cause severe uplifting on your roof membrane. Assess the extent of the uplifting; if it's 25% or more or if you actually see large bald spots on the membrane, then you need it replaced. Left unattended, rainwater will eventually do considerable damage to the roofing and the attic itself.
  2. Considerable Wear and Tear on the Roof Deck Another part of your roofing to take a good look at is the roof deck. Continuing moisture damage is usually the reason your roof deck gets damaged. The signs aren't that obvious initially, but if you already see considerable wearing and tearing on your roof deck, you might want to have it replaced or repaired along with your roof membrane.
  3. Visible Water Infiltration Check your property's walls and attic. Are there any visible water marks or stains? These are indicators your commercial roofing isn't up to par in terms of elemental damage. This is usually the result of the roof membrane and the secondary protection failing to stop water due to age. We recommend that you have your roof inspected by our roofers if you see any water stains around your property. Not only are they unsightly to look at, it's a symptom of your roof falling to decay.
  4. Your Property Isn't Well Insulated Anymore Finally, check to see your property's level of insulation. Your commercial roofing contributes to the actual insulation of your property. So if you notice your electric bills increasing even if your HVAC usage is normal, then it's your roofing that's causing the trouble.
