Addressing Commercial Roof Leaks

What Causes Commercial Roof Leaks?

Roof leaks on a commercial property can be caused by various factors, including:

  • Weather and Climate: Heavy rainfall, storms, and extreme weather conditions can lead to roof damage and leaks.
  • Wear and Tear: Over time, the roofing materials can deteriorate due to exposure to the elements, leading to cracks, gaps, or weakened areas.
  • Poor Installation: If the roof was not installed correctly initially, it may have weak points or improper seals that can result in leaks.
  • Blocked Drains and Gutters: Accumulated debris in drains and gutters can obstruct proper water drainage, causing water to pool and eventually penetrate the roof. This is why commercial gutter cleaning is crucial.
  • Age of Roof: Older roofs are more susceptible to leaks as they may have worn-out components that need replacement or repair.
  • Lack of Maintenance: Insufficient or irregular roof maintenance can lead to minor issues going unnoticed and developing into significant leaks.
  • Flashing Issues: Problems with flashing around vents, air conditioning penetrations, wall flashing or other roof penetrations can allow water to seep in.
  • Tree Damage: Falling branches or debris from nearby trees can damage the roof sheet or gutters and create openings for water to enter.
  • Structural Movement: Settling or shifting of the building’s structure over time can cause stress on the roof, leading to leaks. This also includes the expansion and contraction of the roof which is due to general weather change.
  • Ponding Water: Flat or low-slope roofs can suffer from ponding water, which can degrade roofing materials and lead to leaks.


Identifying the specific cause of a roof leak is essential for effective repairs and preventative maintenance.
