Prepare Your Commercial Roof for This Texas Summer

Although most people can’t wait for the summer months to roll around, Texans can struggle with the excitement. Other than those people who are still in school and are looking forward to summer break, most of us have the same work hours–except the heat can be unbearable and the workdays may seem a tad bit too long. Of course, it doesn’t help if the work environment is hot and uncomfortable. 

If you are a business owner and you notice that the building is hot even when the AC unit is blasting, you may have a roofing problem. If there are holes in the commercial roof, the cool air can escape and the hot humid air from outdoors can creep in. It is very important to prepare your commercial roof for the summer for many reasons. First Out Roofing will help you maintain your commercial roof and provide some guidance for upkeep.

How Summer Heat Can Damage Your Commercial Roof

Too much exposure to the sun doesn\’t just pose a threat to humans, it also can negatively affect your commercial roof. Here are a couple of issues you should be on the lookout for. 

Drying

Roof linings and structural materials can dry out from too much exposure to the heat. This can make them brittle and they can crack. These issues need to be addressed immediately. If not, the fractures can threaten the structure of your roof and degrade its waterproofing materials.

Moisture Retention

Commercial roofs can retain lots of moisture and this is especially dangerous in the summertime when the days are humid. Water patches can cause leaks. During the worst-case scenarios, they can also make your roof collapse.

Sun Damage

The sun can degrade roofing materials just like it can degrade our skin. The sun can bleach or blacken these materials.

Thermal Shock 

During the summertime, temperatures rise quickly during the day, but they can also drop quickly at night. The constant and severe temperature changes, known as thermal shock, can cause your roof to warp or create gaps over time. This is a big issue because it creates a perfect scenario for leaks.

Tips On How to Prepare Your Commercial Roof

We can’t stress this enough but regular inspections and maintenance are essential to keeping your commercial roof fortified.
