• Commercial Roof Leak Repair

    • What is the cost of repairing a commercial roof leak?

      This is another question with far too many factors to provide a broad answer. Scope of work, size, demand for materials, type of materials, emergency or non-emergency repairs are a few examples that can impact your commercial roof leak repair cost. We provide accurate quotes after a leak detection inspection, so you know exactly what to expect.

    • Can commercial roof leaks be repaired in any weather?

      No. Rain, snow, and cold temperatures make roof access dangerous while also interfering with things such as adhesion in the roofing process. While each season presents its own challenges, roofers can often contend with typical weather. For example, warm-weather roofing systems might be more difficult to install below 10 degrees, so a cold-weather system might be recommended as they are mechanically fastened and easier to install year-round.

    • How long does it typically take to repair a commercial roof leak?

      There are several variables that impact the time it takes to complete a roof repair, including:

      • Roof size
      • Material availability
      • Scheduling
      • Method used
      • Type of roof
      • Level of damage
      • Weather
      • Permits required (if any)

      Once we inspect your roof, we can provide a more accurate estimate to tell you how long the roof repair will take.

    • What are the most common methods used to repair commercial roof leaks?

      Some of the most common methods, especially for flat roofs include:

      • Sealing to address minor leaks such as small cracks, blisters, and leaks using a sturdy sealant to create a watertight barrier.
      • Patching larger areas of flat roofs by removing the damaged area and replacing it to create a sounder roof with an even surface to prevent future pooling.
      • Resurfacing flat roofs that can’t be sealed or patched, applying a new layer of roofing materials to the entire roof.
      • Recoating to apply a new layer of liquid roofing material to restore worn waterproofing and extend the roof’s life.
      • Membrane replacement in cases of severe damage that reaches below the top layer of roofing material when the above methods can’t repair the issue.
    • How do you determine the best repair method for a commercial roof leak?

      There are several factors, beginning with a thorough inspection to find the cause, understand the materials used for the roofing and assess the condition of all roofing elements. This allows us to decide whether repairs will be enough or replacement is required.

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.

    • 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.

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

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

    • 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.

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

      • Decreasing the value of your commercial property
      • Possibly keeping customers and skilled employees away who feel your building is unpresentable or unsafe
    • How does weather affect my commercial roof and its maintenance needs?

      Ohio weather takes its toll on your commercial roof, from the UV rays and heat of the sun in the summer to extreme rainstorms and heavy winds in the spring and from heavy snowfalls in the winter to fluctuating temperatures all year round. The older your roof and the less effort invested in repairs and maintenance, the more vulnerable your roof is to weather related damage. Other weather-related factors include having mature trees with loose branches on the property that can fall on your roof in high winds and having full sun exposure.

    • What are the signs that my commercial roof needs maintenance?

      There are several signs that indicate your roof needs maintenance, including:

    • Can I perform roof maintenance tasks myself?

It is also possible you can cause more harm than good, such as removing protective coatings by cleaning or dragging debris across the surface. We say it is something best left to professionals to maintain the integrity of your roof and avoid costly accidents that can lead to liabilities.

      • A thorough inspection
      • Cleaning
      • Removal of debris
      • Gutter cleaning
      • Minor repairs, such as applying sealants to cracks
    • How often should a commercial roof be inspected?

      We recommend professional inspections twice a year, typically in the spring and fall, as well as after severe weather events. This will ensure your roof is sound and identify damage so repairs can be made before the damage becomes more serious, not to mention more costly.

    • Why is regular maintenance important for a commercial roof?

      Regular commercial roof maintenance extends your roof's lifespan, prevents serious leaks that can lead to structural damage, and saves money on costly repairs both to the exterior and interior of your building. Although it might seem you are wasting money with maintenance twice a year, it will save money in the long run. You can protect the value of your commercial property and your business assets.
