Flat Roof Leak Detection

As your Columbus, Ohio flat roof specialists, we know that flat roofs are real culprits when it comes to commercial leaks. Large structures such as manufacturing plants, warehouses, and warehouse-style retail spaces all share one thing in common: Flat roofs that can cause leaks. Flat roofs are more prone to leaks because they lack the efficiency to drain water off the surface like sloped roofs. 

As a result, water pools and can wear down materials, and allow the water to seep into the protective membrane. Over time the damage becomes more pronounced, allowing water to make its way into the interior, damaging the structure of your roof.

Common Flat Roof Leak Causes

Common causes resolved by our flat roof contractors include:

  • Poor drainage
  • Water pooling
  • Inadequate slope
  • Clogged drains
  • Clogged or damaged gutters
  • Structural issues
  • Inadequate maintenance and repairs
  •  Inferior installation and materials

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you provide a warranty for leak detection and repair services?

    Yes, we offer a variety of warranties on our commercial roofing services, depending on the type of roof and the specific needs of the project. Our warranties are backed by reputable manufacturers and are designed to protect your investment.

  • What should I do if I suspect a leak in my commercial roof?

    Call our team immediately to schedule an inspection to confirm there is a leak, diagnose the issue and provide repairs before the damage gets worse.

  • Can a roof leak be fixed without replacing the entire roof?

    Yes, however, it all depends on the age of the roof, whether that area of the roof has caused damage that can make your roof dangerous or prone to the leaks spreading, etc. A roof inspection will determine what is required, whether repair or replacement.

  • How can regular roof inspections save money in the long run?

    Preventative maintenance is always far more cost-effective than reactive maintenance. Because leaks are often slow to appear, the damage can be beyond repair by the time they are detected. Roof inspections spot issues in the early stages, allowing you to make affordable repairs that prevent damage, prolonging the need for a complete roof replacement.

  • How long does a commercial roof inspection take?

    It depends on the size and complexity of the roof, the materials used, and weather conditions.

  • What technology is used in detecting leaks in commercial roofs?

    Drones can help us perform thorough roof inspections quickly without the need for our team to climb a ladder and risk stepping onto an unsound roof. As a result, we perform quick, efficient roof inspections to quickly identify issues and recommend cost-effective solutions on the spot.

  • What are the signs of a commercial roof leak?

    You can’t always see signs of commercial roof leaks, but some more obvious signs include:

    • Staining on your ceilings and walls
    • Puddles inside or around the ground outside the building
    • Moss or discoloration on the exterior, such as rust
    • Noticeable damage to the roof, such as missing shingles, a large branch on the roof after a storm, lifted sheet metal, etc.
    • Unexplained moldy odors in the building
    • Unexplained increase in energy bills related to water-damaged insulation
  • Are commercial roof leak detections covered by insurance?

    No, however, they play a critical role in whether roof damage is covered by insurance. With regular roof inspections you can provide proof you have taken good care of your roof and reasonable steps to prevent damage to your business.

  • How often should my commercial roof be inspected for leaks?

    We would recommend spring and fall inspections to spot issues early and avoid costly damage as well as disruption to your business.
