It is easy to get caught up in the day-to-day operations of a business and neglect things that are not all that noticeable. If the ceiling isn’t showing any water marks, it is not uncommon to put little thought into the condition of your building’s roof. Unfortunately, by the time a leak that could have been repaired for just a couple hundred dollars exhibits symptoms, you could be facing thousands of dollars in repairs. The way to avoid this is to have a good relationship with a local roofer who is experienced with leak detection.
Just looking at a typical EPDM roof is not always an adequate way to detect a problem. Sometimes you’ll see seam failure or a shrinking issue, but not always. Just a few small punctures can let in just enough moisture to saturate the insulation underneath, and if left unchecked, this can lead to mold and other problems. In addition to having to deal with mold removal and replacing insulation and other pieces of the structure, over the period of time in which the problem existed, you were paying higher utility bills because the insulation couldn’t do its job properly.
Regular inspections by a roofer can save you this grief by proactively maintaining the roof on your building. We’ll look for even the smallest leaks and take care of them before they become costly.
