Shedding Light on the Situation: A ‘Roof-ically’ Enlightening Guide to Commercial Roof Damage Assessment! 

Massey Construction Lends a Helping ‘Ladder’: The Unseen World of Commercial Roof Damage

As interesting as it would ‘beam’ to kick off with a roof joke, it’s important to note that commercial roof damage is no laughing matter. According to the National Roofing Contractors Association, a shocking 40% of all building-related issues are due to those pesky water leaks and moisture, the silent destroyers often born out of commercial roof damage. As Massey Construction, we already know and respect these facts, but let’s take a moment to ‘shingle-out’ the often confusing world of commercial roof damage assessment in our enlightening guide.

‘Sealing’ the Facts: what Causes Commercial Roof Damage?

Landing on the ‘ridge’ of your understanding about commercial roof damage causes may make you a more ‘weathered’ adopter of preventative measures. So, why do our structures’ overhead guardians fail us? In a twist of irony, a study by the Whole Building Design Guide shows that the most common cause of commercial roof damage is poor workmanship during installation, responsible for nearly 47% of all roof failures. The other major factor? The lack of regular industrial roof maintenance. The National Roofing Contractors Association reveals that this neglect can chop a commercial roof’s service life by a distressing 50%.

The ‘Roof-storical’ Anatomy of Commercial Roofing Solutions

To understand the ultimate in commercial roofing solutions, it’s essential to equip oneself with a robust commercial roof inspection checklist. Not everyone has the ‘shingle-minded’ focus for this, which is where professional roof assessment services shine. Massey Construction, for one, takes the hassle off your ‘rafters’ and brings on the meticulous attention to detail – a ‘raft’ of expertise that translates to commercial roof replacement and roof damage repair.

Going ‘Over-the-Roof’: Deciphering Roof Damage Signs

‘O-downing’ the vocabulary to decode roof damage signs, like discolored ceiling tiles or sagging areas, can be empowering. Moreover, as adept commercial roofing contractors, we’ve got the ‘tenacity’ to handle everything from commercial roof leak detection to preparing a roof damage insurance claim. Besides, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for roof damage. Indeed, each roof has a ‘peaky’ personality of its own, and while some need repair, others may require a complete roof damage restoration.

‘Gutter’ Your Bearings: Commercial Roof Damage Prevention

Prevention, as it’s wisely suggested, is better than cure. It’s certainly an axiom that applies to commercial roofs. Ensuring regular industrial roof maintenance, or having an eagle-eyed Massey Construction professional periodically implement a commercial roof inspection checklist, can extend the life of your commercial roof. Trust us, the effort will definitely ‘truss’ you a lot less than an unplanned commercial roof replacement!

Frequently Un’roofed’ Questions

How can I prevent roof damage?
