Pooling on The Roof is For The Birds

Goose Pond

This picture says it all! Pooling on a commercial or industrial roofing system can lead to a myriad of problems, including birds creating a nest on your rooftop and potentially dangerous and expensive leaks.

When your commercial or industrial roofing system resembles a pool, most likely, your roofing system is experiencing ponding water. Ponding water usually happens when your drainage system isn’t working correctly. Sometimes certain parts, such as drains, gutters, scuppers, and downspouts, of your roofing system drainage department are not functioning correctly. That’s where we come in.

When ponding water has accumulated on your roofing system, it can lead to serious strain for your roof, seeing as one square foot of ponding water weighs 5 pounds per inch. Now, that sounds like a bird’s dream, but for property managers and business owners, ponding water can be something out a nightmare.

With us on your side, this situation won’t be a nightmare — we will ensure your commercial or industrial roofing system is in excellent condition for you, not the birds. For a free estimate for your commercial or industrial roofing system, please give us a call at (408) 249-4646.
