How To Check a Commercial Roof for Hail Damage

4/24/2022 (Permalink)

hail falls on the roof of slate Hail can cause damage to your roof.

A commercial building may incur roof damage during a major hail storm in Mead, CO. The type of roofing material used on a structure will determine the type of damage hail can cause. Building owners and managers should be aware of the type of roof on a commercial structure and may want to personally inspect roofing or contact roofers after a storm strikes.

Know the Risks to Roofing Posed By Hail

The type of roofing on a commercial structure will determine how susceptible materials are to getting damaged by hail. These are four of the most common commercial roof types:

  • Built-up membrane
  • Modified bitumen
  • Rubber membrane
  • Thermoplastic membrane

A built-up membrane commercial roof may experience hail damage around exposed areas such as flashing. Any type of membrane runs a risk of getting punctured. If the owner or manager of a building is not sure what damage looks like on a particular type of roof, it is a good idea to contact a roofing inspection and arrange for a post-storm inspection.

Check the Roof After a Hail Storm

Check a membrane for visible signs of roof damage after a hail storm. Large hail and small stones can both pose puncture risks. High winds can also tear off components that secure roofing and compromise the protection a roof provides.

Contact a Roofer About Signs of Hail Damage

If you see signs of damage from hail on a roof or suspect that damage may be present, it is a good idea to schedule an inspection. A roofer can identify problems before they result in leaks that damage a commercial building.
Hail has the potential to undermine the seal provided by any type of roofing membrane. Once hailstones cause roof damage, it is only a matter of time before water damage affects an attic and the ceilings of a structure located in Mead, CO.
