Common Commercial Roofing Problems and How to Avoid Them

Tuesday, June 26th, 2018 by Michael Fortenberry

Commercial buildings, like houses, sometimes experience roof problems. Doing routine roof repair and maintenance can fix these problems, but many roof concerns are preventable in the first place. Fortenberry Roofing Co. talks about the most common commercial roofing problems and how you can avoid them.

Common Commercial Roofing Problems and How to Avoid Them


Leaks are the most common roofing problem. They can happen anywhere on your roof and at any time, usually when your roof has endured harsh conditions. While some leaks are visible, there are some that hide from plain sight. Avoid dealing with these issues by having a routine roof check to stay updated on its condition.

Faulty Installation

Sometimes, your roof problems have nothing to do with the material or its age. Faulty installations happen when amateur roofers use subpar materials or don’t know how to install your roof properly. A reliable and professional commercial roof contractor like us will install your roof the only way we know how: the right way. We back our installations with what is probably the best warranty in the industry, for your complete peace of mind.

Standing Water

Pooling water happens if your roof has an ineffective water drainage, often caused by faulty gutters. Finding stagnant water is a bad sign, as it could lead to roof deterioration and leaks. It may even encourage the growth of mold, moss, or algae. Prevent this problem by having your gutters inspected, to find out what is making them ineffective.

Defective Flashing

Flashings are metal sheets used to protect your roof's seams and joints from water. However, if your flashing is defective, you expose your roof to water and can cause more problems like leaks. Call us so we can install new flashings on your roof to prevent this issue.
