Does your Houston area business still have the same roof it did the day you bought the place? Then it’s time for a commercial roofing inspection from Titans Commercial. We’ll look your structure over and determine your next course of action. While most businesses can get by with a few repairs, some circumstances lead us to determine that you need to replace your roof. Here are some of those signs.
1. Significant Leaks
If you and your employees strategically place buckets around in the showroom or office when it rains, then it’s time to have your roof inspected for major damage. Not only can this be a bad look to customers, but it can also cost your business significant damages, including carpet and equipment replacement. Just one leak is all it takes for your entire roof to be compromised. That’s why it’s important to have the professionals look at it. If you have this issue, then it’s time to replace your roof.
2. Visible Damage
It’s not uncommon for roofing damage to happen after a storm, or just from years of being exposed to elements. Some commercial buildings end up with rust, loose screws, visible wind damage, or even ponding water on the roof. This kind of damage can be a deterrent to your customers and stop you from doing new business. With a roofing inspection, you’ll get a detailed report about the extent of the damage and recommendations for replacing your roof.
3. Missing Flashing
Flashing on a commercial roof stops water from seeping through between joints and other access points. This air-tight seal also prevents moisture buildup from the inside. However, it’s not uncommon for this to be a cause of concern for many business owners. When the flashing of a roof retracts or wears down, you could start to notice water stains on the ceiling or down the side of exterior walls. While flashing repairs can help, it’s always best to replace your roofing if the damage is substantial.
4. Not Energy Efficient
Businesses have a lot of overhead, and energy is often one of those costs. If your roof is outdated or you suspect you’re losing a lot of energy through the top of your business, then it’s time for an inspection. With an infrared inspection, we can tell you exactly how much energy you’re wasting on the outside and make recommendations for replacement. Replacing your current roof with one that is more energy-efficient ensures you can keep your employees and customers cool and protected all year long.
