Splits. If only we were talking about bananas and ice cream. Splits (cracks or gaps that appear on the surface of a commercial roof) occur for all kinds of reasons, but extreme weather is a big one. Have you ever had a can of pop freeze in your car? The contents expand and cause it to split open, right? Then of course there’s the flip side of that when things get really warm…they contract. You can start to imagine how all the components of your roof start to move and shift during Minnesota’s glorious weather extremes, leaving your roof vulnerable to moisture issues. The age of the roof is another big factor. Like our skin (anyone out there have any wrinkles?), it loses its elasticity the older it gets. With a little help from TopSite, we can help find those vulnerable areas early on, and help your roof stay young and youthful longer.
