Regardless if your flat roof is on a residential or commercial building, it is important to regularly check on its condition. For the owner of this business, not maintaining adequate drainage on his roof ended up costing him quite a bit of money.
A strong storm overwhelmed the drainage system on this roof causing water to accumulate on the roof's surface. As the water pooled, it worked its way inside of the building flooding the rooms below it.
One of the rooms below happened to be a commercial kitchen. Water caused the ceiling sheetrock to partially collapse creating a hazardous situation for the employees.
After we drained the water from the roof we addressed the interior damage.
