We know the current state of your commercial roof is typically the last thing on your mind. You already have a lot on your plate. Between managing the day to day options of the business, dealing with personnel issues, or developing a success strategy for your organization, it’s easy for slow leaks or small stains in your ceiling tiles to go unnoticed. 

But when one of Michigan’s surprise rain, hail, wind, or snow storms decides to take its toll on your company’s roof — your slow leak or small stain could turn into an immediate issue.

However, the quicker you have someone out to repair your emergency roof leak, the better off your business will be in the long run. 

In this blog, we’ll review why having an emergency commercial roof repair specialist on hand is so important and how it can save your business thousands of dollars. 

Costly Decisions

The longer a roof leak goes on, the more damage it will cause. This includes issues with roof deck rot, saturated insulation, and mold in the roofing assembly.

For example, we once had a customer who prolonged repairing their roof leaks for nearly 2 years. After our company was called out to take a look, we completed a nuclear moisture scan of the roof and found that almost 75% of the insulation beneath the roof was completely saturated.

In this case, the building owner could have saved over $40,000 had they called for an emergency commercial roof repair service at the first sign of a major leak.

Swift Intervention (The Right Choice)

When you work with a commercial roofing company that has emergency roof repair services, you become a proactive partner in minimizing the damage to your business. The sooner you call to get a trained professional on-site, the sooner the leak can be controlled to prevent further damage. 

But emergency commercial roof repair services should go beyond just offering same day repairs. Your emergency repair specialists should be available 24/7, 365 days of the year to help you handle whatever the weather comes your way.

Your expert should also be able to quickly conduct a thorough investigation of the damage, identify problems that may have gone unnoticed, and most importantly implement preventative measures for future leaks.

Emergency Commercial Roof Repairs Can Be Avoided

No one likes waking up to a major roof leak. But the good news is that there are ways you can avoid having to call for an emergency commercial roof repair.

One way is by maintaining the current quality of your roof. And that happens by scheduling regular inspections.

We recommend scheduling a commercial roof inspection at least twice a year. However, getting your roof looked at after a major ice, wind, hail, or rain storm is also a great idea in order to prevent emergency commercial roof repairs in the future. 

Plus, by prioritizing the quality of your company’s roof and promptly addressing any repairs, you can actually prolong the life of your current roof

Taking care of your roof isn’t just a matter of building maintenance, but a strategic investment into the long-term wellness of your building.
