Commercial Building Roof Repairs
Commercial building roof repairs for small or large shops, factories and office buildings is Roofrite’s forte. We are skilled at leak detection and rectification. We quote and fix roof leaks on these buildings on a daily basis and have done so for more than 25 years.
Experience has shown us that, commonly, water ingress occurs:
- around penetrations, such as flues, air-conditioning pipes and skylights,
- deteriorated sealant,
- nailed roof sheets lifting,
- box gutters being too shallow, falling the wrong way, or full of debris,
- polycarbonate sheets becoming brittle and developing splits.
Despite our wealth of knowledge, some commercial roof leaks can be difficult to source. It may be a process of elimination as we work through the obvious causes to the less obvious.
Many commercial building roof repairs can be readily addressed, usually economically.
Depending on the problem, the application of a liquid rubber membrane may provide a cost effective solution. Other leaking issues may be resolved by:
- replacement of worn dektites with new,
- replacing nails with screws,
- resecuring loose and flapping roof sheets, cappings and penetrations
- installing hopper flashings to cover rusted areas.
It should be noted though that commercial roof repairs are not always economical. For some buildings, there is a tipping point. If repairs are ongoing, they can add up to more than a new roof.
