Common Commercial Roof Problems You Need to Watch Out For

Common Commercial Roof Problems

Your roof is the umbrella that protects your home and office. A weak or flimsy umbrella exposes everything under it to dangerous weather elements. Don’t risk your commercial business because of common commercial roof problems.

Contact Douglas Construction for reliable commercial roofing contractors in Atlanta.

Proper Installation

A solid roof begins with proper installation. Using a less experienced roofing company or doing the work yourself creates room for many errors. A poorly installed roofing system could result in the early replacement of the entire structure.

Your roof is a significant investment in your commercial business. As such, it’s best to treat it with that importance in mind.

Regularly Scheduled Maintenance

Regular roof maintenance is every bit as important as proper installation. Once installed, check roofs regularly for minor issues that could lead to more significant damage if not caught early. Check your roofing system following any storms or natural disasters that might have impacted its integrity.

Roofing damage is not always immediately visible once it occurs. Regularly scheduled maintenance is often the only way of identifying immediate impact or damages.

Common Commercial Roof Problems

Every owner should look for and know the following ten common problems in roofing. Many of these problems are preventable with proper installation and maintenance. However, roofing damage can occur even with proper installation and regular maintenance.

The most common roofing problems include:

  1. Poor roofing installation
  2. Poor flashing installation
  3. Shrinkage of single-ply roofing
  4. Lack of maintenance
  5. Poor roof repairs
  6. Blow-offs from wind uplift
  7. Water buildup
  8. Blistering
  9. Punctures
  10. Leaks/moisture

The risks of putting off roof replacement or repairs can be dangerous and costly.

Reliable Repairs

It’s essential to conduct repairs for common commercial roof problems following a damage assessment. Issues such as blow-offs, blistering, punctures, and leaks are only manageable if caught and dealt with early. Failing to take these conditions seriously or not using proper repair techniques will only worsen the damage.

Additional damage may involve weakened roofing structures, interior walls, and ceilings. These structures are also susceptible to mold and bacteria growth from leaks and moisture buildup.

Pooling water on the roof often points to this increased damage. Weakened substructures or walls create bowing in the roofing structure. As a result, the roof collects water over time.

Professional Roofing Services

Ensure proper installation and schedule regular maintenance to get the most out of your roofing investment and prevent early roof replacement. Skimping on installation or maintenance will impact your investment sooner than you realize. It is always more cost-effective to prevent roofing damage before it occurs.

    • Excellent service from Douglas Construction!! We had hail damage, new roof required, insurance covered. It was really easy working with Rome, from start to finish. He is very professional and courteous! During roof install day, Jonathan and his crew were great! They came with a big crew early in the morning and got the roof installed in 1 day! Thanks for a great experience! The roof looks wonderful!

    • Since moving to GA, I've dealt with a lot of contractors & carpenters. In most cases, I've been disappointed with the results. However, working with Douglas Construction has been my best experience thus far. I was impressed with their professional & authentic marketing, their prompt & knowledgeable sales approach, and the overall quality of the installation. If you need a roof, call Douglas.

    • We had a great experience with Douglas Construction Company. They are very professional. We had storm damage and Hayden took care of everything, and was present at every step of the process. He gave us a free roof inspection, communicated with the insurance company, and before we knew it we had new high quality gutters and a beautiful new roof. We couldn’t have asked for more!
