Spring Cleaning for Your Roofing System!

With winter behind us, your roofing system is most likely in need of a little TLC. And the team at Just Leaks is here to help, especially after all the rain the Bay area has experienced this season. It is easy to remember to spring clean your home, but you can’t forget about your roofing system. Here are a few tips and tricks for spring cleaning for your roofing system:

A healthy gutter means a healthy roofing system. Clogged or weak gutters can lead to water overflow, which could make your roofing system susceptible to damage.
Don’t forget about the trees around your property. If the trees are getting dangerously close to your roofing system, they could be scraping and causing damage to your industrial or commercial roof.
Moss, mold, and dirt, oh my! This debris can compromise the materials of your roofing system, so a roofing expert should take a look to ensure your entire roofing system is not compromised.
After the winter weather, there could be weak spots in your roofing system, and before April rains hit us, it would be smart for a roofing expert to examine your roof for any worn or damaged areas in your roofing system.
There can also be moisture accumulation under the roof covering, and our team can check for any loose material or wear around the pipes.

Overall, our best recommendation is to have a qualified roofing expert to examine your roofing system. Winter can take a toll on your industrial and commercial roofing system, and before you are faced with a potentially dangerous or expensive problem, we encourage you to contact us for a complimentary roofing estimate. Please give us a call at (408) 249-4646.

Autumn Roof Maintenance: Keep those Gutters and Drains Free of Fall Leaves

Fall is a beautiful season, and the fallen leaves scattered across our streets are a sight to see. Those leaves may be lovely, but they aren’t so lovely when they are clogging our roof drains. With fall officially upon us, it means it is time for autumn roof maintenance.

Periodic and routine maintenance is absolutely necessary before winter sets in. Those leaves often bio grade into a soggy mess that will clog your roof’s drains and blocks scuppers. And as an added bonus, these leaves can be an inviting home for mildew, fungi, and mold. If these leaves are not removed, they can result in backed-up water, often known as standing water.

Standing water can cause the roof to sag and result in even more detrimental problems. In the winter that standing water will potentially freeze and expand, forcing its way into cracks and under flashings in your roof. Luckily, this situation is completely preventable. Our team is trained to look for leaves and debris in your commercial roofing system. Our keen eye to detail will uncover even the smallest leaf in the tiniest corner.

To learn more about autumn roof maintenance, we encourage you to call us at (408) 249-4646. You can also set up a time for a free roofing estimate.

Everything you need to know about Solar Energy

We have talked about the benefits of installing a solar system on your commercial or industrial roofing system, and with summer right around the corner, we thought it would be the perfect time to talk about how solar energy works, not just the advantages of solar systems.

We love sunlight. That burst of light seems warm both our skin and hearts, as we can’t help but look forward to those bright and sunny days. But did you know that we can put the sunlight to work? Solar energy, or energy coming from the sun, is a renewable resource. And this type of power can be used throughout your operation.

How exactly do we turn the rays from the sun into energy? Almost seems like magic… Actually, it’s just incredibly cool science. The solar panels absorb the sun’s light, and then the silicon converters transform the light into electrical current. This current travels to the inverter, which translates this direct current into the alternate flow. Alternate current is the type of electricity that we can use. And viola! The sun is now powering your electricity via your solar system.

We are the solar energy and solar system experts in Bay area. If you are interested in learning about the installation of a solar system on your commercial or industrial building or would like to hear more about the benefits of this system, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646.
