Top 5 Causes of Water Damage

6/6/2022 (Permalink)

There is nothing quite like water damage to put a damper on your business.  Not only will you lose out on days or weeks of productivity, but you could also find yourself with costly repairs and replacements. 

Leaking roofs are the most common cause of water damage. Especially in areas that experience freezing weather, strong winds or hail.

There are ways to make sure that your roof is well prepared for disaster. 

Check your roof regularly.  If you have a pond up there then your drainage is not working effectively.  Keep in mind that every inch of water weighs in at 5 pounds.  Over time this strain can and will lead to water leaks. 

Check for any damage to perimeter flashing, roof membrane, or roof penetrations such as drains, pipes and gas lines. Over time these areas can deteriorate leaving you with potential hazards.

Taking the time to inspect your roof, gutters and downspouts now can save you a costly situation later!
