Repairs and maintenance are very important when it comes to commercial properties, especially when it comes to roofing systems. A single leak or insulation problem can easily result into hundreds or even thousands of losses related to disruption of operations or equipment damage. In this post, roof replacement experts from TH Remodeling & Renovations Inc share how to check if your roof needs to be fixed.
Unusual Bumps on the Surface
If your property’s roof has a few bumps sticking out, you might want to call the roofers ASAP. Deformations on the surface are usually caused by moisture causing the top material to expand and become warped. This is especially true for membrane roofing, where bumps can create big seams that can lead to major leaks.
Does it feel a bit more humid than usual inside your property? This could be caused by the presence of moisture around or near the ventilation system. Even worse, it could be because moisture has already penetrated the ceiling material. If you think the property’s HVAC is still in good shape, you should contact professional roofers for a thorough roof inspection.
High Energy Costs
Does regular activity in your property reflect unexpectedly high monthly energy consumption? The excess costs will eventually add up to big losses over the following years. Part of poor energy efficiency is related to damaged or inefficient insulation. Older roofs can be retrofitted with modern insulation, while gaps and other signs of damage have to be fixed immediately.
Excessive Noise During Rain
While it may not completely block out the sound of rain, a roofing system should still minimize noise caused by rain or other external sources. If the noise is too loud, it could mean that your roof isn’t soundproofed or there’s a gap somewhere that’s keeping the soundproofing from working properly. Commercial and residential roofing services experts recommend getting help from a professional if your roof has this kind of issue.
