C&W’s commercial roof repairs
If your roof is beginning to age, the chances are that it will soon need repairing, if not now. However, it’s not just older roofs that need repairing. Even if your commercial roof is just a few years old, it’s important to keep on top of industrial roof repairs to avoid more costly damage later down the line.
Here are a few circumstances where commercial roof repairs may be needed:
Leaks and moisture seepage roofing repairs
Leaks and moisture seepage can occur for a whole host of reasons. It could be that flashing was not installed correctly or maybe your waterproof membranes have loosened. Our industrial roofing repair technicians will mend your flashing, repair or replace membranes and apply a suitable cladding solution.
Tenting, billowing and roof loss roof sheet repair
If your flashing has not been installed correctly or if it has been left to deteriorate, it can cause roof blow-offs, tenting and billowing. This can be a real problem with bitumen roofs that are not correctly installed. Our commercial roof repairs will make your roof good and ensure it has strong resistance to wind uplift to avoid future damage.
Pooling water and industrial flat roof repair
Pooling water on flat roofs can be a real headache, especially if the water is not able to escape due to inadequate drainage. If left to stand for longer than 48 hours the water is considered as ‘ponding’ and can cause real damage. The good news is that our industrial flat roof repair service also extends to commercial gutter replacement and roof sheet repair.
Roofing repair to protect against shrinkage
Unfortunately, roof membrane shrinkage is not uncommon, which leads to splits, cracks and unsightly blistering. When we have extreme weather changes, shrinkage is more of a risk. Thankfully, our industrial roof repairs team has lots of experience at proactively protecting against shrinkage with various commercial roof repair systems. We also have a lot of experience mending and repairing roofs that seemingly look beyond repair.
The importance of regular refurbishment & repairs
If checks and regular maintenance are not part of your building servicing, you could miss a crucial opportunity to limit future industrial roof repairs. Therefore many of our clients opt for one of our proactive maintenance and roofing repair programmes, saving them many thousands of pounds in the process.
