Rubber roofs are a great choice for commercial and industrial buildings. Because rubber is less sensitive to the sun than many other materials, repairs may not be needed for up to 30 years or longer. However, as your rubber roof ages and withstands constant exposure to weather and other environmental factors, it may crack or leak.

How Do I Know If My Rubber Roof Needs Repair?
If you’re not sure what condition your rubber roofing is in, it’s a good idea to do a quick visual inspection at least twice a year and following any major weather event. We recommend viewing your roof from the ground, first. Walking around the exterior of the building, keep an eye out for sagging, aging, or other signs of damage and take note.
Next, use a ladder to carefully climb up on the roof and take a closer look. Some things to note that may indicate an issue with a rubber roof include the following:
- If you see gaps between seams
- If you can see the undercoat or inner layers of the roofing
- If you see grass or other vegetation growing anywhere on the roof
- If you see water pooling or feel small dips as you walk over the roof
- If you see holes or splits in the roofing surface
- If the roofing looks wrinkled instead of stretched tight
- If you see blisters where the roofing should be flat
If you have any concerns about your rubber roof, don’t delay. Postponing roof repairs now can have major ramifications down the road — from leaks and mold to higher energy bills and pest infestations.
