The Spring season is a time for celebration, energy, and renewal. As the winter snow melts away, the life that has lay dormant is revived. The world outside is restored to its vibrant color. But as the weather gets warmer, the health of your commercial roof is forgotten until something goes awry. Your spring roof care is important!
Spring Weather Woes
Springtime brings a host of varying weather, each having adverse effects on the condition of your roof, and costs you thousands in repair when damages aren’t noticed or remedied in time. This seems daunting, but NIR will help your business save money and prevent roof problems before they worsen.
Cracks in Your Roof
With all its warmth and splendor, Spring is also a time for inclement weather that may hurt your roof more than you realize. In the mornings, snow begins to melt, and if your roof has undetected cracks, the water will seep into the cracks. When the evening comes, temperatures drop again. The water in your roof’s cracks freezes, and damages the structure of the roof. Freezing water expands about 9% and adds pressure to the already compromised roof structure. With each thaw and re-freeze, the roof materials grow weaker and weaker. This leads to leaks and major structural damage that only grow more problematic when the Spring rain begins to fall.
Additionally, when the season really begins to warm up, heat and humidity also has an effect on your commercial roof. Heat affects your roof’s ventilation. This worsens its ability to regulate temperature and further withstand the elements.
