Why Do Roof Leaks Happen?
Roof leaks are one of the most common problems we diagnose and fix at Capital Coating, Inc. Here are just a few of the risk factors to be aware of:
- Harsh weather conditions – temperature extremes, unrelenting UV rays, storms
- Fluctuations in temperature – significant expansion and contraction of roofing material
- Building/roof age – all roofs have a limited service life
- Standing water – deteriorates roofing materials, especially on flat roofs
- Accumulated debris – opportunity for tears, holes, accelerated weathering
- Humidity – creates breeding ground for algae growth
Avoiding Roof Leaks
There are a few small things building owners and property managers can do to help stave off roof leaks. Here are some ways you can decrease your roof’s chances of developing a leak:
- Use quality material while building the roof (this includes insulation) – some materials are much softer and more susceptible to deterioration
- Clear the roof of water, mold, and algae regularly
- Hire a professional to inspect your roof every 6 months
- Maintain your roof – an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
Taking the above steps can add years to the life of your commercial roof and even your building.
