Common Commercial Roof Repair Issues

Ponding

Commercial roofs are typically low-sloped or flat roofs and these type roofs. Low-sloped roofs are susceptible to water ponding. This is when water sits in low spots on the roof. Over time, these areas of ponding will degrade quicker than the rest of the roof causing leaks and water damage.

To correct water ponding, one solution is to install a properly sloped insulation board design that directs all water to the drains is needed.

Holes and Tears

Holes and tears in roof membranes are very common. This could be from hail damage, debris, and other physical hazards. These damages can be repaired, however, if your roof has many leaks, the costs add up quickly. A roof replacement could be a better decision than constantly repairing the roof.

Seam Leaks

Seams leaks happen with a variety of roofing membranes. Leaks can occur over time from general degradation of the materials but they can also present themselves much quicker when the roof was not properly installed.

Roofing membranes, like TPO, have many seams that are glued or heat-welded. Contractors that are in a hurry might not properly check the seams for proper sealing.

Leaks From Roof Penetrations

Penetrations in the roof for vents, HVAC, grease traps, etc. are all vulnerable areas that require a skillful technician to ensure the detailed work is waterproof. Many leaks from these areas on a newer roof is from poor installation. However, as the roof ages, these areas become frequently the source of leaks.

Flashings

Flashings are another component of the flat roof that is often the source of leaks. The sealants on flashings age, dry and shrink allowing water to seep in behind the flashings and into the structure. Proper preventative maintenance performed twice a year will prevent many of these roof leaks.
