When it comes to our homes, most of us are aware of common indicators that some roofing repairs need to be done. Things such as missing or curling shingles should be a dead giveaway. However, when it comes to commercial roofing, many times the signs are not often as noticeable without a keen eye or without taking a trip onto the roof to complete an assessment.
Here are just a few things to look for that might indicate you need commercial roof repair services for your business:
- Age/Warranty. First, you should keep tabs on the lifetime of the current warranty for your roof. How old is the roof? How long was the warranty for? If the warranty is nearing its end, it is then also probable that the roof is on the older end and should certainly be checked for needed maintenance.
- Increase in energy bills. Your roof obviously helps insulate your business. If there are leaks or weak spots, air might be escaping through your thin insulation and causing a hike in your energy bills. If you notice an unusual increase, consider having your roof inspected.
- Buckling. If you notice any buckling of your commercial roof (particularly noticeable in metal roofs), this could be a sign of a bigger problem and you should have a professional come and assess the damage and begin on repairs.
- Bubbles or sagging in the lining. This often indicates moisture beneath, which can be a problem for your entire roof. However, this can only be seen when on the roof itself.
These are just a few things that indicate commercial roof repair services are needed. Because most business owners don’t spend much time on top of their roofs inspecting them, it is wise to have regularly-scheduled roof maintenance performed.
