Commercial roofs require regular maintenance and prompt repair of any damage to function properly. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be hard to tell if a commercial roof has sustained damage.
Today, Elevate Roofing and Exteriors, one of the top roofing companies in Naples, shares telltale signs that your roof needs repair work.
Brown stains on the ceiling indicate that there is a roof leak. While this is more common with older roofs, even new roofs sometimes develop leaks. If you see a water stain on your ceiling, call your roofing contractor immediately. Keep in mind that the source of the leak may be in a different part of the building from where you see the water mark, which is why a trained professional needs to conduct the inspection.
For properties with flat or low-slope roofs, it’s a good idea to check the roofing membrane for signs of uplift. This can occur as a result of strong winds and often manifests in the relatively weaker parts of the structure, such as the corner, parapets and seams.
If you notice an uplift or visible damage on the membrane, get in touch with your local roofer immediately. At Elevate Roofing and Exteriors, we include a wind-uplift test as part of our complete inspection service.
Finally, be wary of any warping on the roof’s surface. These can manifest as any kind of distortion, with bubbling being the most common. Prompt roof repair
