At OD Jones Roofing, we have extensive experience in working on both residential and commercial roofs. While commercial roofs are different in many ways from their residential counterparts, they do share some fundamental similarities. For example, commercial roofs are subject to wear and tear like residential ones are, and they will also need to be replaced eventually. In this article, our team will go over a few ways to tell if it’s time to schedule a commercial roof replacement for your business.
- Bubbles or Blisters – When you look at your commercial roof, is it smooth and even, or are there bubbles or blisters in the material? If you see any bubbling in the membrane, then you should call our team to have a look, as these bubbles indicate there’s moisture trapped underneath. In some cases, it may be possible to repair this issue, but in severe cases, you will need a commercial roof replacement.
- Sagging – Alternatively, there may be areas of your commercial roof that sag. This is also a problem, as these depressions can create puddles when it rains, increasing the likelihood of water damage. If the sagging in your roof is extensive, then you most likely need a commercial roof replacement.
- Odors – A third sign you need a commercial roof replacement can be observed inside the building. If your commercial property starts to smell musty, then it’s likely you have a mold problem, which often starts in the roof. Other signs of mold issues include respiratory symptoms, so if people in your building start coughing, sneezing, or becoming congested frequently, then we encourage you to have your building and roof inspected.
If you’ve noticed any of these signs on your roof, reach out to us today to schedule a roofing inspection or inquire about getting started with a commercial roof replacement service.
