Industrial roofing systems should be built to last for the long-term. This is true when you use experienced industrial roofing contractors, however even the most experience will tell you that ongoing and proactive roof maintenance is always essential. 

The right maintenance can work wonders for your industrial roofing system, but issues can still occur. From small, isolated leaks to much more severe roof damage; it’s important to know whether your industrial roof needs to be repaired or whether it needs to be completely replaced. 

Looking out for the signs of damage

If you suspect that your industrial roofing system is suffering from major damage, it’s vital that you contact experienced professionals as soon as possible. There are plenty of warning signs that indicate whether your roof has damage, such as:

  • Stains that are seeping through the ceiling or walls of the building, which can occur due to leaks. Missing shingles can also allow water to seep under the roof surface. 
  • Any puddles or water that have gathered on interior floors, which can be the result of major leaks that have come through a hole in the roofing system.
  • Ponding water can often lead to large spots of mold being formed, along with foul odors. 

Contacted trained industrial roofing contractors in the best action you can take, when you spot any warning signs like the above. Specialists will be able to fully understand and deal with the problem, while catering to your exact requirements.

Repairing or replacing

If you spot issues and contact professional roofing contractors, they may identify them as only being minor problems, which can be quickly and easily repaired. By acting quickly and getting repair work done, you can salvage the roof and extend its life-span, as long as it still has a healthy membrane. 

Unfortunately, if the integrity of your current roofing system has been compromised or the roof repairs simply can’t fix the problem, then the most effective option to choose may be getting a full roof replacement. Keep in mind that it’s always best to get a detailed and comprehensive assessment of your roof, before making this decision.
