5 Ways The Elements Can Affect Your Roofing System

Mother Nature can take a toll on your roofing system. We try to stay one step ahead of Mother Nature as much as possible, making sure the elements don’t severely damage your roofing system and thus your business. Of course, the team at Just Leaks will be there to ensure your commercial or industrial roofing system is in tip-top shape.

  • Both warm and cold weather can affect your roofing system. Warm weather causes your roofing system to expand, while cold weather causes your roof to contract.
    Older roofing systems can crack as cold weather temperatures begin to heat up, causing major leaking in your older roofing system.
  • When water gets underneath roofing materials, it can seep below the roof deck and cause your roofing system to rot. This extra moisture can cause mildew and possibly damage your electrical systems, if left unattended.
  • High winds can cause significant damage to your building structure, so your roofing system needs to be strong enough to withstand high winds.
  • Hail doesn’t just affect your roofing system. These pesky pebbles, so to speak, can affect your walls, support structures, and outdoor-mounted equipment. Hail can puncture your roof by creating water build-up and damaging your roofing system’s flashings and fasteners.

As you can see, the elements can certainly take a toll on your roofing system. To make sure your roofing system can withstand whatever Mother Nature throws your way, please give us a call at (408) 249-4646.
