Common Reasons Your Industrial Roof Is Leaking

Industrial roof leaks in Australia are continuously subject to harsh weather conditions including hail, rain, strong winds, and harsh sun rays. Due to the variety of harsh weather elements, it is no surprise that industrial roofs are subject to damage and common roof leaks. The most common reason your industrial roof will leak is because of:

#1 Poor Drainage

It is important that industrial roofs take into account where the water from your roof will drain, including gutters, sprouts, and drains. These areas must be cleaned and free of water build up. If your industrial roof is not draining water properly, water will then puddle on your roof and eventually seep through your roof due to the added weight on your industrial structure.

#2 Open Additions

Open areas on your industrial roof are commonly known as air conditioning systems, vents drains, pipes, and various other systems that open into your industrial roof. These areas can be subject to roof leaks if not sealed properly. To prevent this ensure your vents and air conditioning systems are sealed indefinitely during your roof installation. If this was done incorrectly as poor workmanship, Black Cat Commercial Roofing will reach your property and resolve the issue immediately.

3# Damaged Membrane

The membrane layer of an industrial roof is to waterproof your structure. The membrane will often be damaged from heavy foot traffic, mechanical damage and harsh weather conditions. If this is the case, water can seep through the membrane and soak the layer of insulation.

#4 Aged Roof

Industrial roofs typically last 15 to 20 years. This will depend on what type of roof material you installed or were previously installed for your industrial roof. Aged roofs will deteriorate over time and often be subject to leaks in and around your industrial roof.

Signs Your Industrial Roof Is Leaking:

The indications will allow you to identify something unusual happening, it is best to identify a leak as soon as possible to prevent any further damage to your structure.

Stained/ceiling walls

If your water leak is coming from your roof and is located near the walls, take note, as this could be a potential water leak from your roof. Water leaks create a discoloured area within your structure. Water leaks will damage the internal structure of your property including walls, roof and possibly damage your properties equipment.


A bad smell can be an indication that your industrial building has a leak in the roof. As bad smells and odours typically mean there is mould growth. Mould grows where there is a damp and warm environment. So if mould is growing in your building this can mean water is seeping through your roof.

Water dripping/puddles

If you notice water building up in puddles around your building or notice a drip from your roof, this is a clear indication that your roof has a leak. Visibly noticing water leaks is the most assured sign that your roof has a water leak. This can damage the equipment, structure and slow down the process of your work environment.
