Meet Your Match: Mother Nature
In accordance with the National Roofing Contractors Association, nearly 40% of all building-related headaches relate to water leaks. That’s a fact! Therefore, it is time we put the leaf in the leak and put to rest this pandemic plaguing our commercial roofs. In this ‘drip-ly’ entertaining guide, developed by us, the Tri-Link Contracting team, we’ll unshroud the mysteries of commercial roof leakage repair.
The Lifespan of a Commercial Roof
The International Association of Certified Home Inspectors states that a commercial flat roof, on average, has a life expectancy of merely 20 years. Think of it as the life-cycle of a butterfly, but with less flutter and more… water! Lack of maintenance and repair can shorten this life, but don’t fret, we present you leak prevention, and various roofing solutions to help maintain your commercial roofing systems.
The Common Foe: Water Leakage
Water leakage sounds like a drip in an ocean but look closely – it’s a tsunami in disguise. It accounts for nearly 40% of all commercial roofing problems. Henceforth, regular commercial roof leakage repair goes from being a suggestion, to a necessity. Here’s how you can combat and conquer this slippery foe.
Step 1: Roof Inspection
Imagine wearing a pair of sunglasses indoors just because of a leaky roof! Sounds absurd, right? Avoid such eccentricities by an initial roof inspection by roofing experts. Their in-depth analysis can identify potential leaks and help you select the appropriate preventive roofing repair techniques.
Step 2: Identifying the Culprit
Beware, sleuths! The water dripping from your ceiling might not be the actual leak. It could be a misleading trap for naive leak hunters. The real suspect hides elsewhere. A roof restoration process accompanies effective roof leak detection to catch this mischievous rascal in the act.
Step 3: Waterproofing Solutions
Ponder for a moment how sailors safeguard their ships from water. They waterproof them! Similarly, applying waterproofing solutions to your commercial roofing systems can keep water leakage at bay.
Handy Tips for Reliable Roof Repair Services
