Signs of a Roof in Need of Service

Perhaps you haven’t had the time to call out a professional to inspect your commercial roofing CT. However, there are some actions you can take in order to recognize whether or not any significant problems exist right now. Here are some signs that your commercial flat roof may be in need of some immediate attention:


  • If you have a shingle roof, a large amount of granules washing away signifies deterioration, which could mean the roof is near the end of its life
  • Water stains on the inside of your building are an indication you need roof leak repair in CT immediately – the problem could be much worse than you have observed
  • For metal roofs, rust and loss of protective coating means the material is becoming old an ineffective
  • Loose, cracked, broken, and missing roof tiles can pave the way for major leaks

What You can do to Extend the Life of Your Roof
