Roofing is exposed to the worst of the elements that people avoid by staying indoors. Extreme summer heat and below zero temperatures in the winter take an exacting toll on your roof. Weather conditions in Minneapolis are as tough as those that you can find anywhere and tougher than most.
Until you find a leak, you may not give your roof much thought. As long as it keeps your business office, your employees and your customers dry, you probably figure that everything is okay. But you may need to look for clues that can change your opinion. Knowing what to look for when you examine your roofing system helps you detect the source of potential problems.
A properly installed EPDM roofing can remain in good condition for 20 years or more, but poor installations by inexperienced contractors can reduce its lifespan considerably. In addition to finding a leak inside your building, these conditions let you know when you need to call for a repair:
- Visible damage to the surface or tears in the membrane
- Separation of the roof seams
- Materials that are not adhered
- Improperly seated flashing
- Defective sealing
- Ponding water
