Taking a core sample of your commercial roof can give a story of what’s going on inside your roofing system. This client discovered a leak in the roof, however they had no idea how extensive the damage really was. Showalter Roofing took a core sample of the roof and found that water was absorbed into the insulation. The leak in the roof formed once the insulation was completely saturated with water. Contact Showalter Roofing to help keep your roof in great working order. Watch the results of the core sample now.

Roofing systems expand and contract all the time with cool temperatures and heat. Our recent high temperatures is certainly causing alarm with the stress heat plays on the roofing materials.
Roofing membranes expand, seems begin to split and flashing cracks and peels away from the edges are some of the most common areas to watch for changes to occur. The weather can certainly change at a moments notice by adding wind and rain to the hot, stressed materials. With weakened materials, wind can cause pieces of the roofing system to come loose and water finds its way into the interior of the building.
If you haven’t had an inspection on your roofing system in at least 6 months, it’s time to have your roof taken care of to avoid damage on the inside and out. It’s a small upfront investment or a much larger one later.
