Your roof is one of the most important components of a commercial property. It protects and shields the building from the harsh elements. However, no roof lasts forever. At some point, it will start showing signs of deterioration that will need to be addressed. Local commercial roofing contractor A1 Siding & Roofing discusses more.
If your property is an older one, the roof may feature phenolic foam insulation. Unfortunately, this type of foam insulation is highly acidic and causes rust on your metal decking due to moisture infiltration.
This problem needs major help from professionals. You should call a roofing contractor so they can identify the rust as well as any holes created by the moisture seeping through the roof. They will find these damaged parts of your metal decking and replace them.
Rooftop pools are typical amenities that attract tenants of a hotel or condominium. However, they may cause damage not only to the roof but also to the entire building structure. Since your building is in constant movement, your pool may start to crack, causing water to leak. Once this happens, the water will find its way into the building structure and cause materials and components to deteriorate.
Property owners with rooftop pools should schedule two maintenance visits per year to head off potential damage. Although there are a lot of guides online on how to check your pool if it’s leaking, it’s still best to call in professionals who will do the job for you and can identify underlying issues that an amateur would likely miss.
Standing water on your flat rooftop can also negatively impact your commercial property. Depending on the volume of water that has accumulated on your rooftop, it may also put dangerous stress on the building structure.
To avoid water ponding, always make sure that there is proper drainage. Removing leaves, twigs, and other debris will help clean out your drainage system and avoid water stagnation. If you think your drainage system is not doing its job properly, you should call professionals to check for you.
