What Causes Problems in Commercial Roofing Systems?

With residential roofing systems, regular inspections are important to spot, diagnose and address potential problems before they cause serious damage to the rest of your home. This is just as, if not more, true with commercial roofing systems. When the flat roof on a commercial property fails, there is often a lot at stake. That’s why managers and owners must always follow their maintenance schedules to the letter.

Keeping up with your regular maintenance is one thing, but familiarizing yourself with some of the signs of common commercial roof problems is equally important.

Impact and Puncture Damage

Because most commercial roofs are typically flat, it’s easy for someone to walk on the roof and conduct a quick visual inspection on their own. However, our roof maintenance professionals advise against doing this. Certain areas of membrane roofing systems can be prone to puncturing, which, in turn, leads to worse issues. You can avoid this type of problem by ensuring that all work done on the roof is carried out by a certified contractor.

Standing Water

Water and moisture are perhaps the top enemies of any roofing system. Standing water exposes areas on your roof to water for extended periods. This can cause sagging, rotting or deterioration depending on the type of roof you have. Standing water is typically caused by clogged gutters and downspouts. Regularly clean these areas to ensure proper water drainage.

Hiring the Wrong Roofers

Be vigilant about the roof repair and installation contractors you hire to work on your roof. Always check for references and records with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to ensure you’re always dealing with trustworthy individuals.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
