How To Prevent Commercial Roof Leaks


Do you have a Auburn, KY Commercial Roofing issue? Roof leaks can be frustrating, damaging, unsafe and costly to any facility, especially when not resolved in a timely manner. Some commoncommercial roofing Elkton KY issues that cause commercial roof leaks include membrane failures, drains and gutter issues, ponding water, and flashings.

Below are 8 tips to help prevent roof leaks from hanging over your head:

  1. Ensure your roof is properly draining and not holding or ponding water.
  2. Inspect your ceilings and walls from inside the building to look for evidence of roof leaks or other damage that may have occurred.
  3. Periodically check for coping or metal flashing that’s missing.
  4. Remove debris like leaves, sticks and garbage so they don’t cause a backup in the drains.
  5. Avoid sending anyone on the roof to remove snow who’s not specifically trained to avoid causing damage to your roof.
  6. Eliminate labor costs of a follow-up service call by asking the roofing tech on site to make simple repairs in the same visit.

A Project Manager

Should you hire Hopkinsville Roofing company Silver Creek to design and install rubber roofing, a project manager will oversee the entire project, from start to finish. Why is this important? Our project managers have significant experience in overseeing the design and installation of commercial flat roofing and are remarkably knowledgeable about materials, installation methods and evaluating custom requests.

Your project manager will happily meet you, and all who are responsible for your existing roof, to learn about problems attached to the existing flat roofing, how the building is used, and whether there are any special requirements for the project.
