Repairing Your Commercial Building's Spray Roofing
Spray foam roofing is an excellent option for commercial buildings that have large flat roofs. While spray foam roofing will be one of the most durable roof coverings, it can still suffer damages that will have to be repaired if the roof is to remain effective.
Punctures In The Spray Foam
There are many potential sources of punctures for the spray foam roofing that is on your building. An example of this type of damage could be from tree branches falling on the roof. In some cases, these punctures may be deep enough to allow water to leak into the structure. Luckily, it is typically possible for these punctures to be patched so that their water-resistance is restored. Patching one of these punctures should only be done by a professional commercial roofing contractor as specialized tools and training will be needed to effectively patch these punctures.
Blisters Forming Under The Spray Foam Roofing
Spray on roof coatings are designed to be extremely durable, but they will eventually reach the end of their lifespan. This can lead to the roof needing to be replaced. When the roof is starting to reach the end of its usable lifespan, blisters may start to form in it. These blisters can be unsightly, but they can also represent areas of the roofing that has started to weaken. If your commercial roofing is starting to experience this problem, it can be necessary to start planning to have the building's roof replaced. Otherwise, these blisters can eventually result in large leaks occurring, which could damage the interior of the building. If your roofing is difficult to see from the ground or nearby area, it should be inspected each year to monitor for signs of blistering or other structural damages.
Damage From Hail Storms
Hail storms can be a serious source of damage to almost any type of roofing. When these storms occur, the impacts from the large hailstones can be enough to leave cracks and punctures in the roofing. Luckily, spray foam roofing is designed to withstand some cracking from hailstones. However, very large hailstones may be able to puncture the roofing enough to create a hole that could allow water to enter it. For this reason, you may want to have your spray roofing inspected following major hailstorms that occur in your area. A professional inspection from a place like Tillotson Enterprise Inc can identify any cracks that these impacts may have created as well as assess whether the punctures are severe enough to warrant repairs.
