As a business owner, there are some signs that you don’t want to miss. A dip in cash flow or losing a major client could be clear indications that your business is headed for trouble. There are also signs when your commercial roof may have water damage. It is important to heed these warnings to save your business and your building. It has been said that problems should be viewed as guidelines, not stop signs. If you notice problems with your commercial roof, you cannot ignore them. Instead, use them as a wakeup call to guide you to the next steps.
Commercial roof warning signs of water damage
You may not often think about it, but your commercial roof is one of the most vital parts of your business. After all, it covers and protects everything else. Therefore, you must deal with any minor issues before they become major headaches. Knowing what to look for is the key to avoiding a costly crisis with your commercial roof. Here are 3 signs of damage to look for.
1. Punctures in your roof, gaps in seams and failed flashing
2. Bubbles or blisters on the roof surface
3. Ceilings that have become stained, peeling or bowed
Experts suggest that you should have your commercial roof inspected at least twice a year. Have an inspection completed once in the spring, to evaluate any damage done over the harsh winter months. Then again in the fall, to ensure your roof is prepared for anything Mother Nature may throw in its path.

Regardless of where you live, it’s important to weatherproof your roof. Make sure that it is in good condition and free from anything that can cause further damage.
Below are some of the ways to get your roof weather ready:
Even if you don’t notice any signs of roof damage after a storm; it’s best to complete a roof inspection to confirm there is no immediate damage. It’s always a good idea to keep a checklist or log that indicates signs of roofing damage. This will be helpful information when working with your roofing contractor.
Branches that hang over the roof have the tendency to scratch its surface. This can weaken the integrity of its surface. Even if tree branches are not in direct contact with your roofing surface, leaves can fall down and other debris. When it rains, these materials can end up in your gutter system and disrupt proper drainage.
Inspect your gutters especially after a storm to prevent congestion in the gutters. Any type of congestion or blockage in your gutter systems can cause major roof issues. If you need additional help with clearing your gutter system, never hesitate to call a professional roofing contractor.
Whether or not you have an active leak going on in your roof, make sure you pay attention to signs of water penetration. Any breach in your roofing system can be a portal of entry for water during bad weather. Once water gets into your building, the problem will start to escalate. Water can weaken your property’s foundation and cause some major damage.

Discovering that your roof is leaking or that your windshield wipers don’t work in a heavy downpour is no fun! Here are five ways you can prepare now for the rains to come:
Clean and repair gutters, downspouts and roofs – Clogged rain gutters can cause rainwater to back up and damage your roof.
Keep storm drains clear in your area – Pick up trash you see around your business/community.
Maintain your car – Make sure your windshield wipers are in good working condition and tire treads are at the proper depth.
Harvest the rain – Purchase a rain barrel and get it set up before the rains begin. It’s time to recognize that rainwater is a resource!
Sign up for Preventative Roof Maintenance – Having preventative maintenance keeps your roof in top shape, which means less maintenance or emergency work in the long run
It is wise to be prepared for any rain that may come our way. Getting ready now will help to keep your property safe now and in the future. Put these five tips into practice, and you’ll be ready when those raindrops start to fall.
October is the perfect time to schedule a yearly roof inspection if you have not already!
An annual roof inspection is one of the items many property owners put off for later when it is an item that should be at the top of your priority list every year. If it’s been a while since your last roof inspection or you never had one, now is the perfect time to contact a professional roofing company. A roof inspection will identify any potential concerns for repairs or a roof replacement, giving you ample time to prepare and plan for the updates financially.
If you’ve been putting it off, here are three reasons why this fall is the perfect time to schedule a roof inspection.
- Summer can be rough on a roof
- All commercial roofs need to be prepared for winter weather
- Fall weather offers better accessibility
If you are ready to schedule a roof inspection today, contact Stone Roofing Co., Inc. today. We service Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino, Riverside, and San Diego Counties. Licensed in California and Arizona.
The winter months can be hard on all commercial roofs. Spring has come and the inevitable clean up and maintenance. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Why spring cleanup and maintenance is important for your commercial roof
- To extend the lifespan of your roof – just like an automobile or home, the better you take care of it, the longer it will last. Your roof is an investment in the future of your business and that’s how it should be treated.
- To save money—catching small problems early is a lot less expensive than dealing with a major headache later. This will also allow you add any necessary roof repairs to your budget so you won’t be hit with surprise costs later.
- To make your roof more attractive – even though it’s up high, people do notice your roof. If it’s dirty, has roofing materials hanging over the side or appears to be in disrepair, this reflects badly on your business as a whole.
Activities you should perform in the spring to protect your commercial roof
- Check the gutters
- Trim those trees
- Clean the roof
- Inspect for damage
- Prevent future impairment
- Look around inside
- Only use professionals
- Perform necessary repairs
Without a functioning, well-maintained roof, your business suffers. Your commercial roof is the first line of defense against the elements. If your roof fails, everything inside is at risk. You must take care of your roof with cleaning and maintenance as if your business depended on it…because it does.
Don’t wait for big problems to occur before you fix the small things.

Replacing a commercial roof is a major investment and rarely in the budget. This is why annual roof inspections are extremely important. A successful roof management program should consist of periodic inspections and regularly scheduled maintenance. Annual inspections and routine maintenance reduce ownership costs, reduce leak frequency and severity, extend roof life, and reduce management inefficiencies. Makes sense, right? Unfortunately, most organizations overlook the importance of annual roof inspections. Why? You’ve heard the saying, “out of sight, out of mind.”
Following the rule of, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ could run you the risk of becoming, well… broke. If action is delayed until a leak is noticed or damage is visible, the cost to repair has already become extensive.
