Snow Melts, Leaks Felt!

As temperatures rise and the winter snow melts, commercial roofs are prone to leaks and water damage that halt business right in its tracks. Commercial roof leaks are caused by any number of things. Maybe dislodged materials are letting water in. Or maybe cracks from the Winter’s heavy snow expanded during the constant melting and freezing. In any case, a sudden leak will bring your business to a halt if you wait to repair. The incoming warm weather distracts us from our roofs’ health until a leak emergency strikes.

When the snow melts, where does it go?

The barrage of recent snowfall will melt when the temperatures rise.  Rapid changes in temperature, like the change from the recent polar vortex to milder temperatures, are hard on a roof and cause thermal shock in your roof’s materials. The fluctuation in material expansion and contraction weakens the entire structure of your roof. Even just 2 to 4 inches of melted snow is devastating for a leaky roof, especially if there is nowhere to drain or drainage is blocked by debris or ice. Think of all that water dripping onto your valued customers or expensive equipment!
