Leaks happen, unfortunately. No one wants to see signs of a leak in their commercial roofing system, but it is better to take care of it as soon as possible before it becomes a bigger problem. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult to even know that there is a leak in the roof unless there is a large amount of standing water. At MG Roofing, Inc., our team of qualified technicians will perform regular inspections and maintenance so that any potential leaks can be identified before they become a problem.
Ceiling and Wall Water Stains
These are the most obvious signs that there is an issue. For office areas of a building, it is almost always seen as discolored ceiling tiles. When there is water damage inside of a wall, there may be discolorations on the wall itself.
When you see any areas of standing water inside the building, this is a sign that there is a leak somewhere. These types of leaks can create problems with the infrastructure of the building itself, so they need to be dealt with as soon as possible. Realize that water inside the building can also damage any inventory, business or production equipment and supplies.
Mold and a Strange Odor
Sometimes the only way that you can identify water leak problems is by a musky odor. This can indicate that there is mold growing in a moist environment within the building. If unchecked, it can spread throughout the facility. Ultimately, it can cause employee illness and destroy inventory.
Damage to the Flashings or Other Roof Components
If you have regular inspections and maintenance on your commercial roof, the professionals will often catch small issues before they become big ones. When a professional roofer inspects, there are several things that they will be looking for. These include:
- Any open seams that don’t seem secure.
- Tears in the membranes of the roof structure.
- Blisters in the membrane can indicate that they are brittle.
- Standing water of any kind. This can indicate that the roof system has poor drainage and was not installed correctly.
- Flashing that shows signs of damage or being secured incorrectly.
