The cold weather is creating leaky roofs for business
throughout Coulee Region.
Colder temperatures are freezing drainage pipes of
businesses with flat commercial roofs.
The frozen pipes are keeping built up water on the
roof from draining properly.
The water then leaks, causing damage inside the building.
Roofing companies say there is no long term fix besides
warmer temperatures thawing the pipes..
However, they do encourage business owners to have
their roofs looked at once temperatures warm up.
Have a professional come check the roof see if there
is additional damage that's not been addressed or
shown itself in the interior..
In the past couple of weeks.
Interstate roofing says its seen more than 2 dozen
flat roofs with frozen pipes.
