The Top 3 Signs You Need a Commercial Roof Repair
- Your Flashing Is Damaged: Flashing is the metal edge that runs around the perimeter of flat roofs (and some pitched roofs, too.) The flashing of your roof is in place to seal the joints together and prevent leaking, making it one of the most important parts of your roofing system. If you start to notice that your flashing is bent upwards, splitting apart, or coming off, call Lyons Roofing right away to schedule a repair.
- Your Roofing Is Cracking or Blistering: If you notice cracks or blisters on your commercial roof, you will want to call a licensed, bonded, and insured commercial roofing company like Lyons Roofing ASAP. Not only does a cracked roof look bad, potentially deterring people from entering your property, it also means there may be moisture trapped between the roof membrane and roof deck. When this moisture bubbles up, your roof will slowly begin to deteriorate. You may not notice the water damage initially, but eventually, it can start to show inside your property, which is why it’s always better to call for a repair as soon as your roof starts to look even a little bit cracked.
- There Is Standing Water On Your Roof: While we are on the subject of moisture, it is appropriate to cover one of the very worst problems any roof can experience: standing water. If you notice standing water on top of your property, that means that your roof’s drainage system is not working properly. Water that stays on top of your roof for several days after a storm is not uncommon, but if these puddles persist, you will definitely want to call our commercial roofers at Lyons. Standing water that is left too long can result in leaks and mold growth, which pose both an immediate and long-term threat to your property.
