Signs that your Commercial Roof is in Need of Masonry Repairs

Your commercial roofing is the most important barrier that your building has against outdoor element. From rain, to wind, to snow, and everything in between, your commercial roofing is both your first and last line of defense. Unfortunately, cracks can form and begin to expose its vulnerability. When these defects happen, it may mean that your roof is in need of masonry repairs; and it can be a sign to get your commercial roof checked, fixed, or replaced.

Matrix Roofing has the expertise you need to understand your roof to identify certain concerns that need to be addressed before they become more serious and costly. Here are some signs to look out for: 
  • Roof Sagging: A sagging roof indicates that there is structural damage to your building, and needs to be replaced as soon as possible in order to prevent injuries. Sagging affects the entire roof and it is possible that the roof could collapse! Please don’t hesitate to contact our team as your safety is very important us.
  • Gaps in Flashing: Flashing is the strips of material (typically metal) around the perimeter of the roof’s edge where it meets the wall. Issues can occur when there are gaps present between the flashing and the roof’s edge, which can result in failure during high winds and rain.
  • Prolonged Standing Water: If you start to see bubbles appearing on your commercial roof, this may indicate that there’s trapped moisture within the roof cover, which can lead to leaks, reduce the lifespan of the cover, and reduce the roof cover’s effectiveness against extreme weather conditions.
A properly maintained roof is necessary for the safety of everyone in your building. We encourage you to give us a call here at Matrix Roofing to schedule a roofing inspection in order to determine the best course of action for your roof. We are here to help, and happy to be at your service!
