Commercial Roofing in Houston, TX – Problems with Roofs

Different Problems that can occur with Commercial Roofing

Crazing – This is the proliferation of fine cracks on single-ply membrane, and if it is not taken care of it will eventually lead to leaks and roof failure. One solution to crazing is roof coating applications. For more information on solutions for crazing get in touch with Longhorn Commercial Roofing in Houston, TX today.

Seam Failure – This can happen for multiple reasons. Shrinkage and the loss of elasticity over time is one and aging and weathering degrading the seams is another. In order to prevent seam failure, the commercial roofing should have routine inspection and maintenance. When problems arise, prompt repair will be essential. Seam failure can also happen after unprofessional roofing installs during the installation process.

Roof Leaking – Roof leaks commonly occur around the flashing whenever it becomes loose, due to seal loss, or has been damaged. Flashing is installed around the perimeter and intrusions of the roof.  There are roofing solutions that require no flashing and can minimize the possibility of leaks. For more information contact Longhorn Commercial Roofing in Houston, TX.

Alligatoring – Alligatoring is a problem that can occur to smooth surface asphalt roofing systems.  Alligatoring is where the surface will develop cracking due to the asphalt drying out from sunlight. This cracking can extend completely through the roof, allowing for leaks and other damage from the elements.

Ponding – Experienced from flat or low sloped commercial roofing systems. This is where water will pool up on the roof. It can not only accelerate the deterioration of a commercial roof but it can also be the source of fungi, algae, sediment deposits and can even experience vegetation growth. Due to the accumulation of the weight of the water, over time the areas experiencing ponding will increase in size and compromise the integrity of the roof. As the areas and weight increases, eventually it can cause the commercial roofing structure to collapse.  If you are experiencing ponding on your commercial roof then get in touch with Longhorn Commercial Roofing in Houston, TX to schedule an appointment for repairs at your earliest convenience.

Clogged Gutters – When gutters become clogged, they can cause storm water to back up and this can result in both structural and even foundation damage with a commercial structure. Gutters should be inspected on a periodic basis in order to prevent the possibility of gutter back up.

Blistering – Blistering is a process where moisture will become trapped within the membrane plies of a roofing system. When outdoor temperatures increase, the moisture will vaporize and expand; this will form blistering on the membrane. Blistering weakens the roofing’s membrane and can eventually result in roof failure if repairs are not provided promptly.

Commercial metal roofing is one of the best investments for a commercial building that qualifies. A metal roof can potentially last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Metal roofing applications requires very little maintenance for the first few decades. However, routine inspection and annual cleaning is the best tool to making sure that the commercial metal roof will last a lifetime. Usually, after the first few decades, the protective coating applied to commercial metal roofing will need to be re-applied in order to continue protecting the metal, preventing the possibility of rusting.  If you would like to learn more about commercial grade metal roofing and how your business’s roofing system may benefit from it then do not hesitate to get in touch with Longhorn Commercial Roofing today and we will be more than happy to answer any of your questions and / or concerns.
