Roofing material deteriorates over time because of wear and tear caused by weather such as sun, wind, and rain. Inorganic roof materials are more likely to last longer than organic materials. Be aware that exposure to pollutants or an industrial atmosphere may accelerate the decay of your roof.
Lack of Maintenance
An uneven roof is the most common flaw on flat or low-sloped roofs. Failure to address the slightest tilt will cause accumulation of sediments and water that will eventually destroy the roofing material.
Design related problems are expensive to correct. Usually, the ideal time to repair these problems is during the replacement of roofing material. Some examples of design issues related are:
A weak structure supporting the roof bends or deflects excessively while under active loads.
Improper roof slope, sagging roof or inadequate drainage system, resulting in accumulation of water.
An incorrect system to allow expansion and contraction of deck material, especially in an extremely hot or cold climate.
Incompatible roof materials.
Wind causes a vacuum and uplifting pressure while blowing over the edge of the roof that can partially rip the roofing membrane or system. Roofing and insulations must be fasted and secured to the perimeter and the primary roof structure to counteract the forces being exerted on the roof.
Metal Based Flashings
Metal-based flashings will separate easily from bituminous materials, which is a roofing felt made to protect residential and commercial buildings. The expansion and contraction rate of these two materials will produce cracks and openings that will allow the water to enter and damage the surface. Metal-based flashings should be replaced with bituminous base flashing whenever possible to prevent damage.
