When is it Time to Replace Your Commercial Roof?

When Should I Replace My Commercial Roof?

When you're responsible for a commercial building, that means that you're responsible for maintaining the roof and knowing when it's time to just replace it. There are many telltale signs that it's time for a new roof, and it's crucial to know how to recognize them. So, when is it time to replace your commercial roof?


One leak probably means that there are more leaks, which will then lead to a whole other set of problems. Bottom line is that leaks are bad and need immediate attention. Interior water leaks can cause damage to ceilings, walls, and flooring, including insulation, dry walls, painting, and wallpaper. And don't forget that water almost always leads to mold and mildew.

Bubbling Shingles

Sometimes when moisture gets underneath roof shingles it can cause the shingles to bubble. If you see raised portions or areas that are forming ponds of water on them, heed the warnings. Bubbling shingles are also more vulnerable to wind damage. These are surefire signs that your roof probably needs replacing.

Missing or Damaged Shingles

Of course missing or damaged shingles are never a good thing. Also be on the lookout for granules from the shingles in your gutter system. You will only see these appear if your roof is suffering from damage. It's easy to think that you can just replace some of the shingles and all will be well, but in many cases replacing the whole roof is definitely the best option.
