Here at Integrity Homes & Construction Inc., we know you care about your business, and we want to help you take the best possible care of your commercial property. One of the most important parts of any commercial facility is the roof, and although commercial roofs are designed to last for many years, they will eventually need to be replaced. In this article, our team will go over a few signs that you need commercial roof replacement—if you notice any of them, we encourage you to give us a call right away.
- Damage to the Roof Membrane – One clear sign that you need commercial roof replacement is damage to the roof membrane from storms or wind, which will eventually cause the membrane to peel away from the roof deck in places. In some cases, the damage may be minor enough to be repaired, but in other cases, it may be so severe that it is best to replace the membrane altogether.
- Water Infiltration – Another sign that you need commercial roof replacement services is water marks or stains on the building’s walls. These indicate that water is leaking through the roof and into the rest of the structure, which means your roof is not doing its job properly.
- Less-Effective Insulation – A third sign that indicates you need commercial roof replacement is more subtle, as it has to do with your building’s insulation. Your roof is part of your building’s heat envelope, so if it is damaged or worn, your insulation will start to lose effectiveness, and it will take more energy to maintain your desired temperature. If your electricity bills start to rise for no clear reason, you should check your roof.
