Moisture that develops at the roof or ceiling area and is trapped by foil insulation or other types of radiant barriers is called roof condensation. If left untreated, it can weaken and destroy the entire roof structure. This problem can cost $10 per square foot to repair, depending on how long it remains uncorrected. To prevent or repair roof condensation, Saunders Commercial Seismic Retrofit works with an engineer to repair existing structures and hardware or replace them, if necessary.

Roof condensation is not the same as damage caused by a heavy rain. Although heavy rain can affect the integrity of any commercial building, roof condensation damage can occur without warning on the sunniest day.
Imagine you are sitting at your desk on one such sunny day and suddenly there is a loud crash in another room. You run from your office to discover that a 2×4 has fallen through the ceiling, nearly hitting one of your employees. As it fell, however, it did fail to topple an important shelving system and your new $10,000 copier. Saunders can prevent or repair the roof condensation that might cause such a headache.
