03 Apr The Benefits of a Roof Moisture Survey
The roof over your head is one of your first lines of defense against the outside elements. It keeps the people, machines, technology, and systems inside of your building safe and secure. When moisture leaks into your roofing system it can lead to serious issues like mold growth, high building humidity, and health concerns for building tenants. With an accurate roof moisture survey, you can identify the pockets of moisture trapped in the roofing system and fix the issues without having to replace the entire roof. The benefits of performing a roof moisture survey far out weigh the risks of not having a survey conducted:
Potentially save thousands of dollars by conducting a roof moisture survey.
One of the biggest benefits of roof moisture surveys is that you can identify specific sections or areas of your roof that allow moisture to leak into the roofing system. By identifying these areas, you may simply need to repair the area rather than replace the entire roof. A commercial roof, depending on the size and type of system, can cost tens of thousands of dollars. With a moisture survey you can save money and repair the damage before it becomes too severe.
Avoid mold growth and keep building tenants safe.
Mold loves moisture, so when moisture leaks into your building’s roof system mold naturally follows. Mold can easily find it’s way into your duct system and other building systems, which can spread throughout the building, which causes increased health risks to your building’s tenants.
Further protect your building’s systems by keeping them from overworking.
The high humidity a building faces from trapped moisture can cause building systems like an air conditioning unit to overwork. While this may not seem like that big of a deal, but a system that has to continuously overwork is much more prone to premature failure. This premature failure means you have to pay for repair services more frequently or pay for a new system sooner than you should have to.
