Torrential rains, high winds, tornadoes, snow, and lightning could potentially damage the roof of your commercial property. Old roofs and those with visible signs of decline are more adversely affected by these extreme weather events. Damaged roofs can ruin your stock, interrupt your operations, or expose weaknesses that could encourage theft. Roof storm damage repair becomes an emergency in these situations if the business is to have continuity.
Call a roofing company following a heavy consequential storm or when the signs of damage become apparent, such as leaking. Many roofers offer a free consultation to explain the extent of the damage and suggest replacement or repair based on their findings. This obligation-free inspection increases your awareness of the situation and prepares you for the work and expenditure that lay ahead.
Our Plainfield IL commercial storm damage repair covers various types of weather damage, including:
Hail: Hail damage is usually subtle. When the hailstones are larger than half an inch, an inspection is needed to assess the effects. They may cause dents or chips in your roof and damage your vents and exhaust caps.
Wind-Wind damage is similarly hard to identify because the damage could be underneath the roof. Visual indicators include bent metal, shingle gaps, or roof tiles on the ground. Wind continually weakens roofing components, so we encourage routine inspections.
Snow damage: The weight of snow can compromise the integrity of your roof. In heavy enough snowstorms, the snow can cause your roof to cave. A thorough annual inspection every spring is essential in averting future disasters.
Lighting: While lightning strikes are uncommon, those that occur on your commercial roof may be hard to notice. They leave a black mark upon contact, and these can be weak points that allow water to seep in.
Rain- Rain is the most common element and makes up why the average storm damage contractor in Plainfield is contacted. The first indicators of water damage are stains on walls and ceiling. Unaddressed, the damage leads to mold, weakening structures, and high humidity in summer, which can negatively affect your merchandise.
