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.
