Problems with commercial roofs tend to be more difficult to deal with than residential roofing issues. But with regular inspection and maintenance, you can spot minor issues that may just be starting out, enabling you to address them before they get worse.

So, look out for these issues.

Water Stains on Walls and Ceilings

While it’s also common for water stains to be caused by plumbing issues, you’ll know that their source is a roof leak if you see new and growing brownish spots on the ceiling tiles. Roof leaks can be due to a variety of reasons like aging roof and storm damage. To verify the root cause, it’s best to call an expert.

Roof Holes and Seam Gaps

Holes aren’t something that any roof should have so you should have them fixed ASAP. Seam gaps, on the other hand, are typically due to failures in areas where materials are joined together. Such issues are usually caused by improper installation, poor maintenance, or normal wear. In any case, ask your roofer if a roof replacement would be needed.


Material distortion is often caused by improper installation or roof aging. It occurs when moisture collects under chemically adhered, single-ply roofing, and it often results in low spots or uneven surfaces. Low spots can cause water to pool and create big puddles, which could eventually compromise your roofing.


Mold is a sure sign that your roofing is in bad condition. Look for hidden leaks, and fix them immediately.
