A damaged commercial roof can do more than devalue your facilities; it can put your employees in harm’s way. As a business owner, making money is your first priority, but it’s important to spend a little to keep up with the maintenance of your building. The following are three overlooked signs of much-needed roof repairs.

Damaged flashing

Flashing is an integral component of your roofing system. Flashing serves as a preventive step in roofing. Installed around joints and walls, flashing prevents water from getting to your roofing system. When your flashing is damaged water can easily complicate the situation. If you allow flashing to remain unrepaired long enough, you could contribute to mold growth in your facilities, which could be dangerous for your employees.

Old flashing, improperly installed flashing, and the wrong flashing can have the same effect on your commercial roof. If you have water leaks or brown circles on your ceiling, then you may have a problem with your room.  At Intelligent Design Corp, we can help you remedy all of your roofing problems.

Improperly Torched Down Roofs

Beyond being aesthetically appealing, torched down roofs are functional. In fact, these roofs are great at preventing water from entering your building and increasing insulation rates. However, when your roof hasn’t properly been torched down, you get the opposite effect. Your build can become prone to roof leaks, mold, and a quick escape for the energy you need during the summer and winter months.

Your Nails Are No Longer in Your Shingles

Shingles are one of the most common type of roofing for both commercial and residential properties. When it comes to maintaining a shingle roof, many people drop the ball. They fail to observe their roof throughout the year to ensure they don’t have cracked or damaged shingles. If they do, they still fail at look at the nails holding their shingles in place. Missing nails or loose nails are a cause for concern when it comes to roofing. If your shingles aren’t properly installed, then your facilities aren’t protected.

The most likely cause for missing or loose nails is a dated roof. If you think that you may need a new roof or you need roof repair, at Intelligent Design Corp we are your go-to source for all things roofing.
