Commercial Roofing Repair & Replacement

If you are a business owner, you understand the importance of having a secure office or building. It is crucial to prioritize keeping your roof in decent shape among all the maintenance requirements. Any signs of damage, including leaks or ceiling stains, create a negative impression on customers and indicate that it may be time for a roof repair or replacement soon. In addition, if your roof were to collapse, it could lead to a temporary business shutdown, resulting in a loss of revenue, disgruntled employees, and extra repair costs. To avoid such situations, Brian Elder Roofing is here to help. No matter what your building needs, our team has your back for:

Signs Your Commercial Property Needs Roof Repair or Replacement 

Brian Elder Commercial Roofing professionals learn in training how to repair or replace all types of commercial roofing, ranging from flat, asphalt, shingle, low-slope, tile, and more. Yet, how do you know when your commercial space needs a roof replacement? Read on to discover the most common reasons for roof repairs and replacement and how Brian Elder Roofing can help.  

Water Damage 

If you see water coming through your roof during rainy weather, it is time to seek professional help. Our team can assess whether your roof requires repair or replacement. Unfortunately, leaks in commercial properties can go unnoticed, mainly if the underside of the roof is not visible. Instead, look for secondary signs of leaks, such as moldy spots and ceiling stains. If your property has an attic, check it often for water damage. Plus, you should remember that you can detect mold by its smell, even if there are no visible signs of leakage. 

Blistering on the Roof 

If moisture pockets develop between your roof’s underlayment and membrane, you may notice bubbles or blisters on your roof. Addressing this issue promptly can prevent more extensive damage. Catching the blistering or bubbling early can mean the difference between a simple roof repair and a costly replacement. Scenarios like this issue are why Brian Elder Roofing’s annual maintenance services are so valuable. During our inspections of your property, we will watch for this problem to save you money in the long term. 

Storm Damage to the Roof Membrane 

Fierce winds and severe storms can lift the roof’s membrane, leading to damage. If the damage is minor, affecting less than 25% of the roof’s space, our commercial roof repair services can prevent further damage. However, a total roof replacement may be necessary if the damage is substantial, and you can see bald spots on the roof’s membrane. 

Clogged Downspouts 

If the downspouts on your commercial roof release little or no water after heavy rainfall, they have a clog containing leaves, twigs, or debris. Clogged downspouts are a common issue. But, if the downspouts cannot drain water away from the roof, it could lead to standing water on the roof. Standing or pooling water on a roof can cause tremendous damage in a short amount of time. So, during our inspections, if we notice the downspouts are not working correctly, we will quickly repair them, preventing long-term damage from occurring. 

Flashing Shows Signs of Deterioration 

In a commercial building, flashing is crucial for the roofing system as it safeguards the materials from moisture and other elements. In addition, it provides a protective seal; if it gets damaged, water and debris can enter the roof and cause severe destruction. The damaged flashing can result in the need for repairs or a new roof. 

Shingles are Missing or Damaged 

Steep slope commercial roofs commonly incorporate the use of shingles. Therefore, it is vital that the shingles are inspected on occasion, but especially after a storm. If any of your shingles appear curled, splitting, cracked, or missing, this is a sign that you need to call our roofing experts. Plus, if you notice moss growing on shingles, water is trapped inside the roof under the shingles. When we repair a commercial property that uses shingles, we use the highest quality Owens Corning shingles in our repairs, so you can rest assured that your property will receive an expert repair with the most durable shingles available to roofing service providers.  

Your Roof is Getting Old 

As time passes, roofs age and eventually require complete replacement. Regular inspections and maintenance can help delay this process, but you can only avoid replacement temporarily. Therefore, when the time comes for a roof replacement, it is wise to be informed about the available options and the lifespan of each material. Brian Elder’s Roofing team can advise you on the best roofing materials for your property to make sure your roof is durable and lasts for many years.
