Commercial Property Leaking Roof Missouri City

A commercial property leaking roof could turn out to be a real nightmare. It can easily disrupt business operations and affect your bottom line. In this video, Matt is going to show you what went wrong with this commercial property leaking roof in Missouri City.

Hey, what’s going on everybody, Matt #dadbodbod on your roof with Trinity roofing and Restoration out here in Missouri City this time.

Roof #4 for the day, Cuatro!

So, can anybody tell me what’s wrong with this roof?  they don’t know why it’s leaking they don’t have a clue! Actually, they have a clue they know why is leaking, the roof is messed up, right?

Why is This Commercial Property Roof Leaking?

They hired somebody, last time I told him what was wrong… to do this! which is fine, solved some of the problems. The problem was, that they put too much of it on one side after there were already ripples there. There was already moisture inside there was already off-gassing which caused more ripples. Causing in this case, the modified Bitumen to come off the roof decking, there were no caps or there was no base sheet on this.

I don’t, I mean obviously, they use a primer or something on here ’cause it’s pretty nasty looking.

But essentially, what happened was the water started penetrating into here and pulled off the membrane when it got too heavy and now every time, they have a wind-driven rain they’ve got the water going right inside there.

You can see all the leaves, you can see all the debris, you can see the nastiness in there. This is on commercial property in Missouri City so it needs to be maintained, not like a house doesn’t but this one affects the business it can get people sick and there’s water coming in all over the place.

You know the other thing about this one is whoever they have does not I hate talking bad about other people but maybe they just don’t know right?

These fasteners are still resting. They hit the seam and didn’t hit the fasteners, but whatever the stuff is they’re using is not sealing all the way. It is still cracking it is not lasting very long.

So we’re going to write up another proposal for them to see if they will take our advice this time and get it dry in, so these people can run their business and not be affected.

Gutter Installation

Professional Gutter Installation is crucial to avoid problems and headaches down the road.
Gutter Placement

This was too good not to share with you.

Watch your gutter placement, watch your downspout placement!

This downspout dripping right onto the roof caused all this mess, all the way down to this gutter. When you’re getting your gutters done, make sure the gutter man knows what he’s doing. If he doesn’t call me, I know what I’m doing. We’re not going to drop downspout onto the roof.

If it is all possible, we can drop this downspout into the next set of gutters, so the water doesn’t do all this damage.

As you can see here, It has leaked badly for a long time and all of the insides have probably all kinds of issues we gotta deal with now.

Y’all have a good weekend. Watch how your downspouts come down in your house.

Please call me if you need help, that’s what we’re here for.

Our company provides a wide range of gutters and downspouts in different shapes, sizes, and types. So, whether you need a half-round copper gutter a box gutter, or any other style, we have you covered.

We provide robust and quality gutter installation and drainage control solutions in Sugar Land, TX, and Surrounding areas.

The most popular gutters for tile roofing and steep slope are aluminum extruded gutters.

Signs of Hail Damage

Signs of hail damage can be very obvious, or very difficult to spot sometimes. It takes a professional eye to recognize these signs on your roof.  Commercial property owners are oftentimes surprised by how much damage comes from a brief storm.

However, ignoring the damage can lead to more costs and a bigger headache for you down the road.

In this video, Matt will go over signs to help you discover any roof hail damage done to your commercial roof.

Hey guys this is Matt with Trinity Roofing and Restoration.

One of the easiest ways to tell if your property has sustained hail damage is by looking at the HVAC coils.

With all these coils here you can see all the little dents and divots that are tell-tale signs of hail damage. With all these coils here, you can see all the little dents and divots, that are tell-tale signs of hail damage. We can start looking at the rest of the membrane to see if he was dented, bruised spider, or otherwise broken from hail.

This looks like it’s pretty small hail, judging by the discoloration probably been here a while.

Maybe the roof has been replaced since this hail, and the unit hasn’t. But will start looking at that, noticing all the way around on the gutters, scuppers all the flashings as well.

Signs of Hail Damage on Your HVAC Unit.

But a big easy way to tell is by looking at your HVAC unit. So if your HVAC unit or, your HVAC tech ever says your unit needs to be re-coil because of hail. You probably need to have us out to look at the rest of the roof and make sure there are no more damaging effects on the roof itself.

This is another one of the items were going to look at while doing your commercial inspection on your TPO or modified membrane or any other kind of membrane on your commercial property will come out and take a look at that as well.

Commercial Roof Inspection Debris

During a commercial roof inspection, debris on the floor is very common and can cause severe damage to your roof.

Hey guys Matt with Trinity Roofing and Restoration here.

One of the other items were going to check out on your commercial property it’s HVAC units and the other bigger penetrations.

A lot of times we find things that are leftover, pieces of wire, screws, whatever. We found a few things just walking around this unit.

All these screws probably went into this unit at one point in time. Someone just left it up here after they did some maintenance. So we pick it up to make sure no one is going to step on it, grind them into the TPO, and in this case modified membrane and start causing holes and leaks through the commercial roof.

Inspecting Your Commercial Roof for Debris

We walk around and get those things and we also check to make sure there are no water sources that are just going to consistently drip on your roof. All these pipes that should be connected and running out the drains and scuppers sometimes get loose.

As you can tell, most of the time they’re not glued, so we just got to figure out where they’re at, and this one just slides it back on here and hope that it stays.

Parapet Walls During Inspection

Hi Everyone is Matt with Trinity Roofing and Restoration, talking again about parapet walls during an inspection.

It is not bad, but it’s kind of best practice to have that role come all the way up instead of creating additional seams if it’s not necessary. Sometimes, people will go all the way up on one roll and come down with the second roll. That could be what’s done here, we’re not sure and we’re not going to open it up to find out.

However, we’d like to see it continues as much as possible, so there are fewer seams on the route and fewer possibilities for leaks.

Again, we’ve got some rusted fasteners here, and you can see some of the sealant and caulking is starting to dry out.

Properly Sealing Parapet Walls on a Commercial Building

One of the biggest tell-tale signs that this is already leaking or has been leaking is all the mold and mildew growth on the wall. Generally, on a wall the water is going to rundown is not going to stay, but it’s consistently and constantly dripping from a faster that’s leaking or from a seal that’s leaking up here, you’re going to see this molding move in here.

So, all along this sidewalk here, we’ve been a lot of this mold and mildew on the wall, consistent with signs that this parapet wall is not sealed up properly.

Types of Parapet Walls

  1. Plain parapet walls
  2. Paneled parapet walls
  3. Perforated parapet walls
  4. Embattled parapet walls

There are various uses of parapet walls on a Commercial roofing system.

  • Provide safety for people when on the rooftop.
  • Give a pleasing aesthetic look to the structure.
  • Prevent dust and high winds through the air on the rooftop.
  • Hide equipment and machinery on the rooftop.
  • Avoid the falling of debris gathered on the rooftop.
