Roofs leaks, especially for industrial and commercial buildings can be hard to repair and/or recognize due to the various reasons that may have caused the damage.
For instance, during seasons with heavy rain, some parts of the world experience storms and hurricanes that can damage the roof, leading to leaks.
Since commercial roofing is very critical to any business premises and these leaks are commonly caused by external elements, there is need to understand how to deal with them. They never occur at a time which is convenient and they can lead to significant damage to the interior of your industry or commercial outfit. Sometimes determining the source of the roof leak can be an even greater challenge.
Roof leaking can be attributed to various causes and ranges in term of leaking severity depending on its extent and time of damage. Reasons for most roof leaking in commercial or industrial building or outfit varies; this includes:
Flashings are of metal that are installed on your roof in order to create a water-resistant barrier, which can be concealed or exposed. If exposed, they will look like long runs of sheet metal and, if concealed, they will have a rubberized coating overtop. In the event that your flashings are failing, elements like wind and rain could easily penetrate your building. This is a major cause of roof leaking.
When some plumbing works are done through the roofing of a building at times this results in leaks to the roof. The plumbing penetration includes plumbing vent pipes, exhaust flues for appliances, attic vents and ventilation fan ducts, among other necessities. Worn or cracked rubber boots and metal flashing around pipes and flues are among the most common leak sources.
