Water damage roof Knowing what interior and exterior signs of water damage to look for can best help prevent further damage to your commercial roof.

“Out of sight, out of mind” – it’s a common phrase and it can be applied to today’s blog topic, which involves identifying roof damage for commercial properties. Because we don’t see our roofs on an everyday basis, it can be challenging to assess their condition. There are a few signs for which you can look that indicate potential water damage to your roof. By knowing what to look for on the interior and exterior of your commercial property when inspecting it for water damage, you can best prevent your commercial property from experiencing any roof damage and the water damage that coincides with it. Read on to learn more.

Interior Indicators

There are three primary indicators of water damage on the interior of your commercial property, indicating roof damage. If you notice any leaks or puddles of water, take them seriously, as they are classic signs of water damage. Likewise, water spots, which are damp areas of discoloration, on the ceiling are also a sign of roof damage. Lastly, if you are suspicious of mold in any capacity – whether it be that you smell or see visible mold growth – this can also be a sign that your roof is experiencing water damage.

Exterior Indicators

If you are inspecting the exterior of your commercial property, the first things you might notice are cracks and tears on the roof. While these commonly result from aging, they are a cause for concern, as water can seep into these small areas of damage and risk water damage to your property. You may also discover puddles of water on your commercial property’s roof, which can indicate that your roof’s draining system is malfunctioning. In the event that the draining system isn’t fixed and the water doesn’t move, the standing water increases your risk of roof and water damage. Finally, water may leak through loose roof seams. This requires immediate professional assistance. The key to all of this is being proactive. You can prevent further roof and water damage the sooner you take action.
