How Just Leaks Can Support You (When Things Are Going Well)

Usually, we talk about how the weather might negatively affect your roof. San Jose gets a fair share of rain all year, and it’s essential to be cautious about leaks. But this August heat has us less worried and more inspired–with all of this summer sun beating down, it’s hard not to think about the benefits of solar panels on your commercial building.

Solar panels bring energy efficiency and cost savings to the table. 

If you’re trying to get your office building energy efficient, solar paneling is the way to go. It may seem like a lot at first, but you’ll recoup that initial investment over time. To fully consider the cost benefits of solar, you’ll think about:

  • Tax rebates and savings for installing solar panels.
  • A reduction in your energy bills.
  • The ability to market yourself as a green company (which is vital in 2022!). 

Not to mention, your solar panels will last longer than you expect. Solar panels have a very long lifespan—some as long as 50 years!—This means that once installed, you won’t have to worry about replacing them for quite some time. The initial cost is the cost, except for a bit of maintenance here and there.

Besides the money it saves, solar paneling your commercial office building will also help your business make an impact. Solar panels help reduce greenhouse gasses and other pollutants in the air by generating power from renewable sources rather than burning fossil fuels or mining coal like many traditional power plants do.

Just Leaks can help install your solar panels and guide you through the process!

So, if you’re looking for a way to save on your energy bills and help the environment simultaneously, then solar panels might be the solution. Solar panels can be installed in any office building, no matter what size or shape it might be…it’ll just take a little consulting on our end. If you are interested in learning about the various roofing systems or installing a solar system on your commercial or industrial building(s), call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646 for an in-person consultation.

Don’t Ignore a Problem with Your Roof

Don’t Ignore a Problem with Your Roof

Have you ever heard the saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it?” This doesn’t exactly apply to your roof, unfortunately. 

When it comes to your roof, you should try to get to the problem and fix it long before it actually breaks. This can be the difference between a small, easy repair and a costly renovation. Your roof will show you signs that it’s struggling even before the flood gates open up. Before your leaf has a problematic leak, it will have some other problematic symptoms of a leak. You should be on the lookout for:

  • Leaks. Even small leaks turn into significant leaks. In fact, it’s almost more rare for a giant leak to come out of nowhere–typically, all leaks have a small leak in the beginning. 
  • Cracks. If you’re noticing cracks but no leaking, it may just be because you’re in a dry season. When the rain starts to pick up again, the cracks will likely begin leaking. 
  • Droopy ceilings. If you touch a part of your ceiling and it begins to jiggle, there’s only a little time left before it completely bursts!
  • Discoloration. This could mean many things, but typically it might mean water is gathering in one place on your roof, which will put pressure on that part of the structure. A discolored patch may be the first sign that something isn’t going well drainage wise. 

We don’t have to tell you that ignored problems just don’t go away, no matter how much we hope they do. Often, they actually come back more challenging to handle than they would have been before. We understand if you don’t have the time or resources to get your roof fixed today. However, make sure it’s on your list of priorities!

We’re more than happy to check out whatever drips or leaks are threatening the safety of your business. If you are interested in learning about the various roofing systems or installing a solar system on your commercial or industrial building(s), call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646 for an in-person consultation.

Spring Showers: What The Rain Means For Your Roofing System

We can’t wait for Spring! We are looking forward to seeing the sun shining, the flowers blooming, and the skies turning bloom, but before the world is completely with Spring again, we have to get past those notorious spring showers. We have all heard of the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” The team at Just Leaks is ready for rainy season, but are you?

Your commercial or industrial roofing system is one of the most expensive systems on your building. It is important to a roof maintenance plan to reduce the likelihood of leaks. This way, you can minimize the impact of heavy rains on your roofing system. During any spring shower, usually, gallons of water are running across your roof. If your roofing system has a low slope, it is essential that this water drains and evacuates as soon as possible. If you notice water overflowing or running down any walls, contact our team right away for 24-hour emergency leak repairs.

When a roof is properly cared for, leaks during the rainy season are usually not a problem. Just Leaks promotes proactive maintenance to minimize roof leaks and to secure the longevity of your roofing system. Our favorite motto is “maintenance preserves!.” Unfortunately, roof leaks do happen, and when they do, our clients trust our team to take care of the problem quickly, which is why we offer 24-hour emergency leak repairs. We aim to be there when you need us the most.

With spring officially here, it is critical to make sure you are ready for those April showers. Just Leaks provides tailored, experienced, and reliable roofing service to commercial and industrial operations throughout San Jose and the SF Bay Area. We are committed to repairing your roof quickly and accurately. Because of our diligence to our clients, we are proud to have earned the reputation as the leading roofing service in San Jose.

End of the Year Reminder: Preventative Maintenance

It is almost 2021, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what 2021 holds for us. Before the New Year is here, the team at Just Leaks encourages you to contact our team for annual maintenance. Your industrial roofing system might need a little TLC before the year is over.

  • What does annual roofing maintenance look like, and why is it important?
    Longer Life – The deterioration of key components, such as drains and waterways, can cause roof system failure even though the majority of the roof membrane is still serviceable. By keeping the roof clean and maintained you allow the entire system to realize full maturity.
  • Fewer Leaks – Most roof membrane defects develop after the heat of the summer. These defects are quite apparent to our technicians well before the rainy season hits. Inspecting, repairing, and maintaining the roof minimizes roof leaks and maximizes the performance of the overall roof system.
  • Less Cost – it is far less expensive to repair any roof deck during a scheduled, Fairweather maintenance session as opposed to making repairs during an emergency call in the rain. By making repairs to defects before they leak, you also avoid the damage the infiltrating water can cause as well as disruption to your business activities. Regular maintenance means a longer service life which translates to less cost for that system on an annual basis. This community substantial savings for your facility’s budget.

To schedule an appointment for annual roofing maintenance, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646. Our team looks forward to making sure your commercial or industrial roofing system is ready for the New Year.

Ponding Water Explained

You may have heard of ponding water but what exactly is it, and what does it mean for the condition of your commercial or industrial roofing system? The team at Just Leaks is here to help you understand exactly what ponding water is and how it can adversely affect your roofing system.

First, ponding water can be easily defined as water that remains on your roof for more than 48 hours. Due to rain, snow, or runoff, it can accumulate on your roof, and it can, unfortunately, result in negative consequences. Here are just a few of the negative consequences:

Ponding water can begin to wear on the structure of your roofing system.
Can result in physical damage to your roof’s membrane.
Algae and vegetation may even begin to grow.
Dirt, debris, and contamination can begin to collect.

All of these consequences compiled together can result in the deterioration and ultimate failure of your roofing system. And even the tiniest amount of moisture can begin to take a toll on your roofing system.

However, have no fear, the team at Just Leaks is here. If you are worried about ponding water on your roofing system, we encourage you to give us at (408) 249-4646. You can also set up a time for a free roofing estimate.
