COMMERCIAL ROOF DAMAGE FROM EXTREME HEAT
California summer and the extreme heat it can bring is just around the corner and it can be damaging to your Los Angeles County commercial roof. Most Southern California commercial roofs are hit hard by summer heat waves and if you are not prepared, it could cause serious damage to your roofing system. From damage from UV rays, to water and humidity damage, extreme heat can wreak havoc on your roofing system. As extreme heat may force you to need a new roof replacement sooner than anticipated, especially if it’s not well taken care of, ignoring the problem can be dangerous for your property and also a costly, unnecessary expense you may not have budgeted for.
HOW TO PREPARE YOUR CALIFORNIA COMMERCIAL ROOF FOR SUMMER HEAT
The best way to avoid a problem with your commercial roofing system is to be prepared. Full roof inspections internally and externally will help you prepare for the hot summer heat. Typically, roof exposure over a period can weaken your roof system and its ability to serve as a barrier.
Working with an experienced, trusted, certified roof contractor will help identify potential roof issues.
A professional Commercial Roofing Inspection can identify potential issues:
Cracks, blisters, or punctures in the roof membrane
Discolored or water-stained walls and ceilings
Cracks in walls and parapets
Raised or deteriorated areas on the walls below the roof deck
Nails or screws coming through the membrane
Loose, damaged, or buckled flashing
Damaged or missing caulking along masonry panel joints
Gaps in caulking around any units on the roof (chimney or HVAC)
Bald or bare spots where UV reflective granules are missing

Can a “Cool Roofing” Material help combat Summer Heat?
Yes! By reducing the heat absorbed, a “cool roof” system will work more efficiently cutting down on energy costs.
As shown in photo below, highly reflective Rock-It Adhesive can be used as a cold applied aggregate surfacing adhesive with white marble aggregate embedded to ensure a strong, fully reflective surfacing. Bright white gravel surfacing combines the durability and weatherproofing aspects of gravel-surfaced roof systems with the benefits of a “Cool Roof” system, such as lower energy costs, reduced carbon output and less strain on a building’s HVAC system.
