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.
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.
Proper commercial roof maintenance comes with a long list of practical benefits. It increases the time between replacement projects, averts major leaks, prevents unscheduled downtime and avoids liability in the event of accident or storm damage.
