Did you know that 45% of Americans make New Year Resolutions, and the top four categories are self-improvement, weight/health, money/job and personal relationships? At Just Leaks in San Jose, we don’t want you to forget about your commercial or industrial roofing system. We have compiled 3 resolutions you can easily complete, especially when you have us on your side.

  1. Inspect: Annual roofing inspections and reports are incredibly important in protecting one of our biggest investments. A roof inspection on your commercial roof can save you time and money in the long run, and in California, we see many problems arising on neglected flat roofs. Many of this issues could have been prevented with a simple inspection and report.
  2. Clean: Many commercial roofing systems are afflicted with tons of debris, such as leaves and foliage. To ensure your roofing system doesn’t start to degrade prematurely, it is important to have your roofing system cleaned on a routine basis by professionals.
  3. Maintain: It’s common for business owners to think about their commercial roof as often as they do of their windshield wipers, and usually, it’s only in the rainy season. Our team can tailor a roof maintenance program to your operation and roofing system. This way, we ward off preventable, and typically, expensive problems.

With Just Leaks at your service, we think accomplishing these three roofing resolutions will be seamless. Not only will you feel empowered after knocking resolutions off your list, but your commercial or industrial roofing system will be ready to withstand virtually anything that comes its way. To schedule an appointment, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646.

During the colder months, including December, your roofing system can be prone to a leak caused by heavy rains or even hail storms. In one of these situations, your damaged roofing system on your commercial or industrial building can severely affect the stability of your operation. A roof leak emergency calls for drastic measures. Fortunately, our team at Just Leaks offers 24-hour emergency roof leak service.

Before we arrive at our operation, there are several things you can do to prolong and protect your building from any further damage:

  • Take cover. To ensure your precious items are minimally damaged, cover them up or move them out of the way as quickly as possible.
  • Try and catch water. Use towels and old newspapers to soak up any water emerging from the leak. For heavier leaks, you can utilize trash bins.
  • Alleviate heavy water pressure. If you see a bulge in your ceiling, it could be possibly a large pooling of water. It’s much easier to repair one hole in your ceiling, compared to several, so while being very careful, you can poke a hole in the bulge to release the build-up of water. Make sure you have a large container handy to catch all the water.
  • Contact a professional as soon as possible. To put it simply, you can’t mess around with roof leaks. Contact capable roofings experts to fix the problem, so you and your operation are not comprised.

With our 24-hour emergency roof leak service, we recognize how vital your roofing system is the overall success of your business. Upon arrival, we will quickly assess the situation and perform the necessary repairs. Also, in order to prevent a roof leak emergency, we recommend proactive maintenance of your roofing system on your commercial or industrial building. This way, we can spot and repair areas of weakness in your roof. To make sure your commercial or industrial roof is ready for those December showers, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646.

Winter is just around the corner, which it means it is time to pull out those winter coats and scarves to counteract those chilly temperatures. Not only do we have to struggle with colder weather, but your commercial or industrial roofing system does as well. Our team at Just Leaks takes special care to ensure your roofing system is up for Mother Nature’s challenge.

Water, temperature fluctuations, and the occasional ice can severely affect your roof. However, our team at Just Leaks will make sure your roof can withstand the brunt of winter.  We encourage you to have a team of professionals thoroughly inspect your roof at least twice a year, especially before the onset of winter. During an inspection, our roofing professionals will:

  • Look for any dark spots that could indicate potential ponding.
  • Level any low spots in your commercial or industrial roof, so we can prevent ponding.
  • Look for and seal any cracks or holes in your roof.
  • Keep all drains and gutters completely free of debris.
  • Encourage you to keep the internal temperatures of your operation consistent and stable to minimize heat loss, which can lead to thermal shock.

We provide tailored, experienced, and reliable roof service to commercial and industrial companies throughout San Jose and the surrounding communities. To make sure your commercial or industrial roof is up for the challenge of the upcoming winter, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646.

Many of us underestimate the importance of proper roof ventilation, but 90% of properties in the United States have unreasonably high levels of moisture. With this startlingly high statistic, we think it is imperative to address how and why roof ventilation is so important for the overall condition of both your roofing system and property.

Proper roof ventilation is a complete roof-saver, and in some cases, even a complete life-saver. If your roof does not have roof ventilation, it can lead to moisture problems, especially during the colder and wetter months of winter. In the summer, a lack of proper roof ventilation can lead to decreased energy efficiency. If your operation is not properly ventilated during the summer, temperatures can rise up to 150 degrees, which means you would most likely be quickly turning on your A/C, causing your energy bill to go up. Overall, roof, lacking proper ventilation, can lead to the excessive growth of ice dams, mold, rot, and energy bill.

If you are worried about the condition of your roofing system, specifically the proper roof ventilation, leave it to us. Our team will assess the condition of your commercial or industrial roof ventilation system. We will decide on a course of action, tailored to you and your business.

However, this time frame depends on a variety of factors. Some types of commercial roofs can last around 10 years on the shorter end, while others can last up to 50. Overall, the average lifespan of a roof will be  greatly affected by these factors:

  • Climate
  • Installation
  • System Type
  • Roof penetration

It is important to have a team of experienced and educated roofers installing your roofing system, which in turn, will ensure your installation was performed correctly and to last. After the initial installation, routine maintenance also affects the longevity of your roof.

Summer is officially here, and as much as we love the sun, we have to be mindful of sun damage. Those UV rays are not just harmful to our skin, but they can also cause severe damage to your commercial or industrial roof. We can help you combat the sun’s dangerous side effects.

UV light, IR radiation, and thermal expansion can wreak havoc on your commercial roof, and often this damage goes unnoticed until the rainy season. During the summer, the chances of your roofing system deteriorating are heightened, and roof deterioration can lead to leaks and other problems.

A cool roofing system is an excellent and effective way to combat the sun. This type of roof coating will draw the sun’s heat away from your building, along with lowering its overall surface temperature. This coating is easily applied to your existing roof, and will provide ample protection against both water and the sun. You can think of it as sunscreen for your roofing system.

We also recommend routine roofing inspections. A thorough roof inspection will identify any sun damage and help curb problems before they become bigger and more expensive issues. The team at Just Leaks can carefully and expertly inspect your commercial or industrial roof for any signs of current or impending damage.

Recently, the team at Just Leaks investigated six roof leaks. After a thorough inspection performed by our team, we identified the source of the leaks. We located HVAC units with missing base flashings. We saw that roof flashing had, in fact, never been installed on the HVAC units. We quickly fixed the issue in order to prevent further damage. Our team applied gravel to the flood coat area to prep for flashings, along with installing cap sheet flashings that were tied to the roof. Upon our comprehensive inspection, we also located and repaired ruptured pipe joints.

After we completed the project, we sent our client photos capturing and detailing the repair process. We were thrilled to receive such wonderful feedback from our client. He praised us for our detailed description and explanation of our work, along with our ability to always be there for his roofing needs.

The world is anew with signs of spring, such as blooming flowers, budding leaves, and of course, spring showers. The saying goes “April showers bring May flowers,” so it’s time to figure out how these spring showers will affect the condition of our roof. The team at Just Leaks is here to help.

Your roof is your first line of defense of rain, wind, and hail. You rely on your roof to shield you against the downpour of Mother Nature. Unfortunately, even the smallest hole or crack in your roof can let water enter your commercial property. Also, during autumn, leaves are known to accumulate in your roof drains and gutters. Rain runoff can wash them off into your drainage system, and ultimately, clog your entire system. When your draining system is clogged, it can truncate your insulation or even end up damaging your roof deck.

In order to prevent against the effects of spring showers, we recommend routine roof annual cleaning and repair. Not only is spring known spring showers, but it is also known for the term “spring cleaning.” It is the perfect time to have your commercial roof cleaned and repaired, if repaired. Our crew will clean your entire roof of debris. We thoroughly inspect and clean your drains, overflows, and downspouts. Next, we will walk your entire commercial roof to inspect and repair any issues.

It can be a challenge to find the right roof for your commercial building. It gets even more challenging when you are searching for an eco-friendly roof. How do you choose which eco-friendly option is right for you and your business? The team at Just Leaks has compiled a list of eco-friendly options for you to consider:

  • Cool roof: Cool roofs are also known as white roofs. Due to the roofs’ high solar reflective, the temperature inside your building will stay much cooler, compared to a building equipped with a darker roof. Because of less heat in your building, you will be able to keep the cost and usage of your energy down.
  • Metal roof: Metal roofs have the same advantages as a cool roof. They are lighter in color and are able to reflect heat. Because they are extremely durable, they can withstand severe weather, such as heavy wind or rain. Metal roofs are also made with recycled materials.
  • Solar roof: With a solar roof, you basically possess your own independent source of energy, and this source of energy is reliable. Fortunately, we have access to excellent weather predictions, which allows us to prepare for interruptions. Solar roof shingles can also be integrated into your roof’s original design. They come in several different styles from a variety of manufacturers.
