Jewett Roofing Company performs a comprehensive and thorough inspection and examination of every clients roof. The inspection provides a detailed analysis of the existing roofing systems, moisture assessments, and identification of problem areas. Core samples are taken from each roofing system to determine type, thickness and overall condition of the existing roofing system.
Common Industrial Roofing Problems
Most roof leaks are not found in the large open areas of the roof. It is the details that cause the majority of problems.
A proper inspection is composed of several steps:
- Inspecting the roof surface for debris.
Tree limbs and other debris can puncture most roof systems resulting in costly repairs. Maintenance personnel often leave screws, loose HVAC doors and tools behind.
- Checking the penetrations.
Inspect around all pipe stacks, HVAC units, and curbs. Look for lifted seams or open cracks.
- Careful examination of the roof’s edges.
All roof systems expand and contract when the temperature changes and EPDM materials are especially susceptible to shrinkage over time. This can result in tears or the material coming loose at the edges.
It can be extremely dangerous to attempt roof inspections on your own!
Roof inspections should be done on a regular basis. Schedule yours to be performed with each change of season and after severe weather. If you do not have the experience or personnel available, call us and we can help!
