Everyone needs a bit of help when it comes to choosing their roof components, especially those who are about to install a metal roof for the first time. One of the most important parts of a metal roofing system is its substrates.
It’s not always easy to maintain commercial roofs, but without proper care, your roof will most likely develop damage in crucial areas like the roof envelope, which is the barrier between the roof and the interior parts of the building.
Moisture damage is one of the leading causes of premature roof replacement. Water, regardless of its form, generally causes wood decay and is a catalyst for metal corrosion. Its destructive power doesn’t always have an immediate effect, but it ultimately renders non-resistant construction elements structurally unsound in the end.
Proper drainage is key to commercial roof longevity. However, the flatter the slope, the more prone it is to pooling water. Considering that a one-inch pond can weigh 5.2 pounds per square foot, it can put a great strain on the roof. When left unchecked for 48 hours, the roofing system can collapse due to hydrostatic pressure.
