Ice Dam Damage to Commercial Roof in Mt. Juliet?

Snow covers a roof.

Our team of independently certified roof inspectors at Centennial Roofing is ready to assist Mt. Juliet business owners with all their roofing needs. Ice dams are a common cause of roof damage during the freezing winters. The best way to prevent ice dams from forming on a commercial roof is to remove the snow as soon as possible.

How Can Ice Dams Damage My Commercial Roof?

There are two common ways ice dams cause damage to commercial roofs.

Freezing Water

Freezing water can damage the roof because it expands and can tear the sealing points along its edge when it freezes. Additionally, large icicles can accumulate at the roof’s edge, and the weight of the icicles can damage the roof and the eavestrough or rain gutter.

Pooling Water

If water pools behind an ice dam, it may seep into your commercial building because it has nowhere to drain. Pooling water can cause extensive damage to the structure of the building as well as to the insulation, drywall, and electrical systems.
