What causes roofs to leak?

Unused equipment on your roof is usually the source of roof leaks. Roberts Roofing Company is able to remove the equipment, properly repair the structural deck and install the roofing manufacturer’s specified material. In the event you need to add stacks, vents or new HVAC units to your facility, Roberts Roofing Company has the ability to properly seal these penetrations according to industry standards. We will also install roof drains with piping and commercial grade gutters, downspouts and scupper boxes.

Another leading cause of commercial roof leaks is our region’s widely fluctuating weather patterns. For example, constant freeze/thaw patterns can lead to trapped moisture in seams that can eventually cause leaks. A thorough inspection by an experienced commercial roofer can reveal loose or deteriorated flashing, split membranes and other damage from debris, such as tree branches.

How do I manage winter roof leaks?

Flat roofs are more susceptible to leaks because they don’t allow snow to easily slide off. Additionally, ice can be a real problem on flashings, seams and downspouts. So, what do you do when you spot signs of leaking during the winter? There are temporary fixes that will help to eliminate costly spring repairs, including frequent snow removal, the use of tarps and the application of temporary materials to stall or stop an active leak.

At Roberts Roofing, we immediately dispatch a professional to assess the situation and determine the best course of action. Our leak repair crews consist of two men per crew. Each crew has their own truck that is equipped with the tools and materials necessary for any repair needed.

Should I repair or replace?

Here are four questions we ask our customers in guiding them toward the best solution:

  1. What is the extent of damage?
  2. Where is the damage and how does it affect the building’s use?
  3. Is the owner looking for a short-term fix or a long-term solution?
  4. How much will the work interrupt business processes?

Don’t rule out other options when it comes to addressing a damaged roof. When a commercial roof needs more than a repair but the insulation is still in good shape, the most effective solution may be to recover your roof. Or, when the commercial building owner simply wants to extend the life of the building roof, a cost-effective coating might make sense. In addition to extending the life of the roof, you will get leak protection and better heat protection that results in a more comfortable temperature inside the building.

No two roofs are alike, so make sure you are not getting a one-solution-meets-all quote. With many options to consider, you want to work with a qualified, experienced and innovative roofer that will walk you through each of these options.
