NRCA’s http://www.everybodyneedsaroof.com “From the Experts” column highlights steps to determine whether a commercial roof system should be replaced
Building owners trying to determine whether they should replace a commercial roof system should have it assessed by a commercial roofing contractors to inspect damage and discuss factors including age of the roof, building use and climate concerns.
Proper assessments for commercial roof system replacement are outlined in “When should you replace your commercial roof system?” by Jayne Williams, CFO and safety director of KPost Company, Dallas, now posted to www.everybodyneedsaroof.com, the official consumer website of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). The column is posted on the site’s “From the Experts” page.
According to Williams, water infiltration and previous leak concerns should be discussed, and the roof should be inspected for moisture trapped below the roof membrane. In addition, a roofing contractor should look for excessive moisture in insulation and damage to the interior and exterior.
The column also states if significant damage to the deck is found, it must be repaired or replaced when tearing off and re-roofing. Prolonged and repetitive moisture in roof assemblies can lead to mold issues.
