Houston, TX – 3 Scary Things to Find During Bi-Annual Roofing Inspections

BY: Rickey Evans, Certified Commercial Roofing

Routine roofing inspections should be a common practice to be sure a roof is doing its intended job of protecting valuable space. Expert commercial roofers can perform annual or bi-annual roofing inspections as the season changes to find or make roofing repairs as needed. In the long run, keeping up with roofing repairs will save money over time, keeping roofs in tip-top shape to last for years to come and minimizing larger and more costly roof repairs in the future. But there are a few things a commercial roofing company doesn’t want to find when performing an inspection.

Mold

It’s never good to spot mold on a roof during inspection time. Mold usually means there is a leak somewhere that has been going on for a while, leaving damage in its wake. Not only that, but mold can also be harmful to people. Any sign of bacteria or mold while performing a roof inspection will alert a commercial roofer to a problem that should be addressed right away.

Ponding Water

Standing water on a commercial roof is also not a good sign. Any ponding water, especially over time, can lead to leaks. 

Water is always looking for a place to go and can find its way through the smallest of places, leading to major problems. Ponding water can also compromise the roof membrane, again leading to a leaking roof. 

The fact of the matter is that ponding water is not a normal occurrence for a commercial roof, and a commercial roofing company should make any necessary repairs to prevent further damage to the roof.

Insects and Debris

Debris may end up on the roof, especially flat roofing systems. A commercial roofer will clean off any debris as things such as branches can cause damage to a commercial roofing system. Insects can also be a bad sign on a commercial roof. 

Insulation can cause insects to gather on the roof and can lead to leaks that will need repair.

Contact Commercial Roofing to schedule your roof inspection or to make any necessary roofing repairs.
