Exposure – either long term exposure to the elements (sun, water, freeze thaw) or shorter term exposure to damaging air pollutants and chemicals Structural Movement – such as building settlement or expansion/contraction not accommodated by the roofing system
Not Fixing Problems Promptly – these can add up to a much shorter roof life e.g. if a small problem is not repaired, then a large amount of insulation can be damaged
Biological Growth – such as vegetation in areas of standing water or algae
Forgetting About Maintenance – This is perhaps the single biggest cause of premature roof failure
Equipment Additions – Improperly added equipment or other items improperly added on the roof Multiple Patches Improperly set and sloped A/C Unit
