Roof punctures are a common problem for commercial roofs, so you should understand how to prevent them. Punctures cut through the roof membranes and the protective felt, allowing moisture to infiltrate the roofing system and damage the roof’s other parts. Most punctures take place when the underlayment is exposed. YES Contracting Services, one of the top local roof repair contractors, explains what you should know about roof punctures:
Water build up is usually the reason behind sudden commercial roof leaks. Unlike residential roofs where you can have gutter installation to handle draining, a commercial roof has more complex draining methods that malfunctions and causes accumulated water. This poses as a problem. Especially with commercial buildings with business establishments.
