Roof Leak Causes Significant Water Damage to Evergreen Business?
Our Golden, Wheat Ridge and Evergreen have been mitigating and restoring water damage for local commercial businesses in Jefferson County for over forty years. After any storm or major rain event, it is a good idea to inspect your roof for damage. Here are some tips from the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety for protecting your business from roof leaks:
Re-check drainage systems
- After severe weather, check all drainage systems for leaks and ensure they are properly secured and operating
- When re-roofing, ensure that all drains, scuppers, and gutters are returned to their original operating conditions
- Check for, and repair cracks around roof drains
Check for water
Check for long-term standing water in gutters and correct any blockages. If there are no blockages, but standing water still occurs, ensure the gutter is properly sloped to the downspout.
Check the slope of the roof cover system
For low-sloped roofs, ensure the slope of the roof cover system and the insulation boards divert water to internal drains when present or to the edge of the roof. Long-term standing water is an indication of an improper slope.
Check air conditioner drains
Ensure all roof-mounted air conditioning drain lines funnel water to a drain.
Check the downspouts
Ensure downspouts funnel water away from the building and do not allow water to accumulate near the building’s perimeter.
