Signs Your Commercial Roof is in Trouble

A commercial roofing system differs greatly from a residential roofing system. Many experts would suggest that a commercial roofing system often requires a bit more expense to care for because of the larger size and the different requirements that many commercial businesses have for their construction.  Because of the considerable investment that any business has in their commercial roof, being able to detect problems early on can make sure that you can prevent the need for major repairs before it’s too late. Here are some of the top signs that your commercial roof is in trouble!


If you started to notice visible leaks inside your business during storms and rainy weather, it’s crucial that you have your roofing system repaired or replaced immediately. If there’s leaking inside your business whenever it rains, this means that there’s severe damage to a portion of your roof.

Water Stains on the Walls and Ceilings

If you’re starting to notice water stains on the ceiling and walls, this means that your roof is beginning to have an active leak but it’s likely early in the stage of damage. A mediated repair and inspection for your roof can help to prevent further damage.

Mold and Bugs

Invasions can happen often with a roofing system and if you’re starting to notice that pests are making their way into your business, it’s likely that they could be entering through flashing or a hole in your roof. Repairing these items immediately can prevent pests and mold growth!

These are just a few of the top signs that it could be time to seek repairs on your commercial roofing system. If you’re starting to spot some of these early signs, it is crucial for you to contact a professional contractor today to get a complete roofing inspection and repair!
