The majority of roof leaks are a result of improper roofing installation of roof flashing or defective flashings. Improperly installed shingles, storm or hail damage, gutters that aren’t draining properly, and inadequate ventilation are other common problems resulting in a roof needing repairs. Many times a roof that is leaking creates an emergency situation in your business. Since many roof leaks are a result of incorrect installation on the part of the original installer, it’s important to find a roofing contractor with experience and expertise in the materials of your particular roof system. Every material is unique and some require specialized knowledge. Metal roof repairs require a different set of knowledge and skills than shingle repairs, tile roof repairs, or flat roof repairs.
Common Reasons for Roof Leaks
Proper upkeep of a roof will save you a very significant amount of time and money. Scheduling regular commercial roof inspections will allow you to catch any problems, such as roof leaks before they become an expensive issue. Unfortunately, roof leaks in Texas are common. However, it is not inevitable that every roof will develop them. If you suspect there is a leak somewhere in your roof, it is to your advantage to have it repaired as soon as possible to prevent serious repairs and water damage.
Since many neglect their roofing upkeep, often times leaks are spotted too late. Not only will the building owner be left with a ceiling stain, but their insulation, sheet rock and roof decking may possibly be rotting or saturated. If the damage has spread this far, everything will have to be replaced. In fact, some of the most costly roof repairs are those that don't even require the roof itself to be replaced, but all these other components listed above.
There's a common misconception that if a contractor finds a problem with a roof, the whole roof will have to be replaced. By having routine inspections done, you will actually benefit a great deal by having the peace of mind that all little problems are spotted before they become larger ones. Our inspectors will also be able to tell you whether the problem you're having is actually being caused by a roof imperfection, or by something else.
For example, ceiling stains are not always the result of roof leaks, but also plumbing and air conditioning issues. Despite what people may think, a roofing professional can mend many roof imperfections without having to do a major roof replacement. This is just another reason why you should first call one of our expert inspectors, before attempting to get a roof/ceiling issue fixed.
We are factory-authorized to install your roof. What that means for you is that you can take advantage of the product-defect warranties that some manufacturers offer on their materials that are used to repair leaks, as they only offer them if the roofing is done by an authorized company. We also offer certain warranties on our work, and are happy to offer you details at any time.
