When it comes to commercial buildings, safety and security are vital. The public is putting its trust in you, and in return, you must make certain they are always protected when in your place of business. All Roof Edmonton offers the expertise you need to make certain your building is always at its best.
WHY COMMERCIAL ROOFING IS SO IMPORTANT
A safe and well-maintained roof is a vital component of any building’s structural integrity, and that’s why the importance of commercial roof repair is so great. A well-built roof protects the building’s interior from severe weather damage and can even help with fire prevention measures. A variety of problems can plague your commercial roof’s health such as standing water, blisters, and gaps in flashing. It is absolutely imperative to upkeep commercial roofing so that massive repairs don’t cause major financial hardships later.
Most roofs are made with materials that are meant to be flexible to a certain extent, but too much moisture or heat can create blisters that will allow moisture to seep in and weaken the structure. These issues prematurely age the roof and reduce its effectiveness to protect the interior of the building and its foundational supports from severe rain, debris, and wind perils. All Roof Edmontons Expert Roofing Contractors are able to inspect your commercial roof to ensure you know what the true lifespan of the current condition of your roof is or has left.
Standing Water and Intrusion
Standing water has an abundance of adverse effects on a roofing system. It can lead to leaks that can deteriorate your roof leading to water intrusions that often cause a variety of health hazards like bacteria and mold. Unpleasant musty smells can also signify that water has infiltrated the roof or other parts of the building. Standing water will also severely weaken the roof’s supports as materials like wood shingles and metal shingles decompose and rust. All Roof Edmontons expert Roofing Contractors are able to spot the signs right away! Do not hesitate - Call All Roof Edmonton Now!
A Roofing design is fundamental to a roof’s durability and lifespan. A rooftop in Vancouver will require different specifications than one in Edmonton or Calgary. It’s essential to build the right type of roof for your building and your environmental surroundings. The Expert Roofing Contractors at All Roof Edmonton are the ones to call for all your commercial roofing needs.
Roof Drainage and Gaps in Flashing
Proper drainage is critical to your roof’s health and lifespan. If drains or scuppers become clogged with waste and debris, then the water pools on the roof. Gaps in flashing on the roof often cause water to permeate the building. Also, cracks or worn seams on the roof will allow water to gain access into the interior of the building. Standing water is heavier than you may think and puts excessive stress on the roof and other structural components. Skylights are other areas that may potentially cause leaks if the seal around them is damaged. Have the Expert Roofing Contractors at All Roof Edmonton inspect your Commerical Roof today!
When it comes to the integrity of any building, the roof is where it starts. Having a well-built and well-maintained roof is vital to keeping your building in its best shape. Not to mention that the better your roof is, the safer your building is for everyone inside. All Roof Edmonton knows that Commercial roofing is nothing to take lightly, and we understand the gravity of every installation, repair, and replacement we do for our commercial clients.
The roof is a commercial building’s first line of defense from natural hazards such as wind, rain, fire, hail, ice, snow, and extreme heat. It is also the most vulnerable part of your building. Every day, your roof is exposed to weather and other elements that may contribute to decay and deterioration, increasing the risk of damage to the roof itself and the contents below it. Having a roof that “protects the building” starts with design, materials selection, and installation at the time a facility is built or remodeled—events that occur infrequently and may be outside the scope of most businesses ongoing activity. But it also includes a regular program of inspection, maintenance, and repair—activities that should be part of your operational planning in order to prolong the useful life of your roof and make sure it does its job in protecting your business from weather damage.
Signs of serious problems may be apparent even from inside the building. Water stains on a ceiling may signal a leak, which can be caused by a crack or hole in the roof. It’s important to understand that even the smallest leak can be a sign of big trouble. Similarly, if the building has unexplained mold or odors inside, this may indicate a roof leak resulting in water penetration. While internal water damage or mold may signal trouble above, it’s also important to visually inspect the roof itself to look for problems that are likely to worsen over time.
The best way to avoid roof-related problems and strengthen weather resistance is through regular care and preventive maintenance. Proper maintenance also prolongs the life of a roof and in many instances will allow for “repair” instead of “replacement” when a problem is identified. The frequency of inspections for routine maintenance depends on several factors, including the age of the roof, recent weather events, rooftop foot traffic, and conditions identified during previous inspections. That said, scheduling inspections every 6 months (fall and spring) is an effective way to make sure they are not sidetracked by the press of other important business.
