The roof of your commercial property is vital for keeping all the occupants and furnishing safe and protected. A flat roof is common on a commercial property and not without its complications.
Roof repairs are expensive, as are most maintenance required for a commercial property. A flat roof is very easy to install and can last for many years if properly maintained.
However, leaving repairs will only cost you more down the road. If the roof is damaged and causes damage to the tenants inside the property, you can be looking at a heft bill.
Common Flat Roof Repairs
A flat roof is the most common type of roof for a commercial property. There are also some very common issues that will arise with a flat roof.
Flat roofs can experience issues with drainage. Even with proper drainage, it can be difficult for excess water and moisture to be removed completely. This means water is pooling and it can start to seep through your roof.
If there is heavy foot traffic on your roof, then it can get damaged much faster. Tears and holes can also be caused by natural causes, like debris hitting your roof, falling branches, and animal damage.
The sun, wind, rain, ice, and hail are all problems for any roof, but in particular, a flat roof. Constant exposure will damage many elements of your roof much faster.
It happens. Cutting corners or trying to save money on a good deal is rarely a good idea. You end up paying for it in the end, anyhow, so you are better off relying on a reputable roofing company like Premier Group.
Mold and mildew can happen very quickly. It can be difficult to get rid of it once it starts to set in. This can spread quickly, causing not only more damage, but people can get sick.
Professional Roof Repair
No one likes to dole out money for repairs on their commercial roof, but cutting costs by hiring cheap labor is never a good move. You should never make your roof repairs DIY or hire someone because they cost less.
There are too many things that can go wrong. This is not something you should be willing to risk.
Hiring cheap unskilled labor will only cost you more down the road. If they do it wrong, not only do you need to pay someone else to come in to fix it, your insurance may not cover it.
Safety is something you need to consider. A professional contractor will be insured and licensed. If someone gets injured you don’t want to be held responsible for it.
You might be able to locate and patch a small leak, but that doesn’t mean you have solved your problems. There can be any number of underlying problems with your roof that will get missed without a professional inspection.
