Commercial Roof Repair
We don’t tend to think too much about the roof of a property until something goes wrong. Commercial roofing is often about functionality, but if yours starts to leak or breaks in some other way, then it is time to look into getting commercial roofing repair services.
Robinsons Facilities Services can offer roofing repairs all over Yorkshire, and even provides an emergency call out service in case something goes wrong and you need help urgently.
Our trained and accredited roofers can help to repair any issues and get your business up and running as soon as possible.
Common Issues With Roofing
There are a few common issues that can occur with commercial roofing, and these include:
- Leaking roofs. You’ll notice if water starts to enter via the top of your building. This can come from broken or inadequate commercial roof drainage systems.
- Broken tiles or slates, sometimes as a result of a storm or extreme weather conditions.
- Moss or algae growth or even mould. This can be a problem in more humid climates.
There are other issues that may crop up, and there are still examples of asbestos being found within roofing, which may require specialist repairs. This can be dangerous if not dealt with in the proper way.
If you notice any of these problems, then it is important to get in touch with a professional roofer as soon as possible.
Avoiding Roofing Issues
Though some issues can come from everyday wear and tear, there are some things you can do to help avoid commercial roofing problems.
One of the best ways to keep an eye on your roof is to carry out regular visual inspections, looking for any signs of damage or wear and tear.
It’s also important to clear away any debris that might have accumulated on the roof, as this can cause problems like blocked gutters or downpipes.
If you have any trees near your commercial property, then it’s also worth checking that their branches aren’t causing any damage to the roof.
Keeping gutters in a good state of repair is also crucial, as this can help to avoid water damage. Robinsons Facilities Services also provides a gutter cleaning service.
Keeping a business’s roof in good repair offers several benefits. A well-maintained roof can help to prevent leaks, which can cause significant damage to a building’s interior and disrupt business operations. Regular roof maintenance also helps to extend the lifespan of a roof, avoiding costly repairs or replacement down the line. A well-maintained roof can also improve a business’s energy efficiency, reducing heating and cooling costs. On top of that, a well-maintained roof can enhance a building’s aesthetic appeal, creating a positive impression for customers and visitors. Finally, by ensuring that a roof is in good repair, a business can maintain compliance with building health and safety regulations, avoiding potential fines and legal issues.

Commercial Roof Repair FAQs
In most instances, scaffolding will be put up to help the roofer make the necessary repairs and access the roof properly.
Commercial roof repairs are often needed because of leaks. Tree damage and shrinking membranes can also cause significant issues that need repairs to be carried out.
The severity and seriousness of a roof leak will depend on the damage and how much water is leaking, but water intrusion is never a good thing and it is always a good idea to get the issues resolved as soon as you possibly can.
