Like many things, a commercial roof requires a lot of maintenance and repairs. It is important to know what you are looking for when it comes to things such as roof damage, as spotting it early means that it can be easily repaired. Here are three signs of commercial roof damage you should always be looking out for…

  1. Blistering or bubbling on the roof

This is usually an important tell-tale sign that water has been allowed to enter a building from somewhere in the roof and has become trapped underneath the surface. This is because insulation will not swell unless it is exposed to water. If this is not treated, it can lead to the spread of mould.

  1. Sagging or stained ceilings

An almost definite sign of a leak, this clue indicates that a problem could be situated below the top of the roof; however, any ponding of water may have compressed any insulation or it is possible that roof join may just be broken.

  1. Bad Odours

An unpleasant smell usually occurs after water has been able to penetrate a commercial building and left to settle. The smell usually occurs due to growth of mould.
