Is Your Commercial Building Ready for Monsoon Season?

Commercial Roof from overhead

Monsoon season is essential to the New Mexican desert. Monsoons are characterized by heavy rains and high winds that unfortunately pose significant risks to your building’s structural integrity and can cost you serious repair fees.

To avoid incurring unnecessary expenses, here are a few ways to ensure your commercial building is ready for the rainy monsoon season in Albuquerque.

Get a Roof Inspection

A crack or leak can serve as an entry point for water to infiltrate and enter through your roof, where it can cause mold to grow and the roofing timbers to rot. If your commercial roof is made of shingles, water can seep in and cause the shingles to develop curls or appear to be buckling—as though they’re being pushed upwards from beneath. To avoid this, it’s advisable to have your roof inspected by professionals before the monsoon rains begin. At EverGuard, we are highly experienced in carrying out roof inspections as well as commercial roof leak repair to help you avoid expensive repairs down the line.

Have Your Drainage Checked

Poor drainage leads to disastrous water overflow, especially during the monsoon season. This water often pools on the roof and causes moss and fungi to grow, attracting birds and other wildlife, and causes degradation of roofing materials.

At EverGuard, we perform drainage inspections as part of our commercial roof leak preparation services. We also inspect other drains in other areas of your building, including scupper drains, gravity drains, and siphonic drains. We can also assist with the installation of vapor barriers to keep moisture out and prevent any structural damage.

Signs Your Roof Needs Repair

Inspections can help prevent damage, but there are signs that it’s time to call in the professionals to get your roof repaired. If you notice the following, call us to fix these problems so your roof is ready for the oncoming storms this season.

• Paint is peeling off

• Rafters are sagging
