Is it time for a commercial roof replacement? This is a question that confuses many business owners. It can be difficult to tell if your roof is damaged, especially if you have a large property. Plus, most business owners simply don’t have the roofing knowledge to know when a replacement is needed. Luckily though, there are some clear signs that it’s time for a new roof. If you notice any of these issues, then call your local roofing professional.
1- Your Roof is Bubbling/Sagging
Changes in the look of your roof might indicate water damage. Look out for bubbling, sagging, and also other changes in your roof and ceiling. If you notice these, then a contractor needs to inspect the damage.
2- You Have Water Stains
Water stains are always a red flag. Water stains will appear on your ceiling, and can change in size and shape as the damage spreads.
3- You Have Humidity Problems
If your office is more humid than usual, then you might be dealing with excess moisture from a water leak. Humidity from water damage might mean that the damage has spread from the roof to your building’s walls.
4- There is Roof Leakage
This is one of the most obvious signs that you have roof damage. However, it’s also one of the most common problems we hear about. While many leaks can be fixed with simple solutions (like a shingle replacement), leaks might also indicate a bigger problem. Have a professional evaluate the leak to be sure.
5- Your Energy Bills Are Climbing
A damaged roof will not cool your building very effectively. This can mean energy bills that are higher than usual. If you are struggling to cool your building, then your roof might be the culprit.
6- You Are Overdue For a New Roof
While commercial roofs can last for a long time, they won’t last forever. Most roofs last from 15 to 40 years. If it’s been decades since your business had a commercial roof replacement, it might be time for an upgrade.
