For commercial buildings, a roof serves as the first line of defense against natural hazards such as fire, rain, wind, ice, hail, snow and extreme heat.

So if roofing issues aren’t addressed quickly, it’s likely your roof will sustain further damage, which greatly increases the chance it won’t sufficiently protect what’s below it.
