Protect Your Commercial Roof From Season Hazards

commercial roof debris removalAs summer becomes a distant memory and cooler weather sets in, our attention turns to fall roof prep. Here are a few reasons why you should protect your Chattanooga commercial roof and gutters from the changing seasons before winter weather sets in.

At Tennessee Roofing and Construction, we always recommend customers call us for routine inspections of your facility roof as well as periodic maintenance to make any necessary repairs before old man winter hits. Several factors can cause roof damage, but one major concern during this time of year are falling leaves. While colorful, autumn leaves are beautiful, they can wreak havoc on commercial roofing structures.

Commercial Roof Drain Buildup

How could leaves as light as a feather cause so much roof damage? Moisture. From rain and water drainage, wet leaves become a heavy mass that often clogs drains, blocks scuppers and invites mold, fungi and mildew to grow. If not properly removed, leaves can lead to back up, which increases the weight on the roof deck. Did you know that 1 inch of standing water weighs approximately 5 lbs. per inch, per square foot of roof surface assembly? Over time, even a small amount of standing water may damage the roofing membranes, reducing the life expectancy of your roof.

As cold weather approaches, areas of ponding may be at risk of leaks, as water freezes and expands. The additional weight of ice or snow can cause structural damage and expensive repairs, or even roof collapse in areas of poor drainage due to debris.

We recommend frequent checks and prompt debris-removal, necessary to prevent buildup or blockage. Drains and gutters should be cleared in the fall before below-freezing temperatures create frozen blockages from leaf debris.
