THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER ROOF MAINTENANCE
It’s vital to do your roof maintenance and do the repairs on your roof when needed. This proactive approach is much easier and less expensive to take certain preventive measures to avoid the emergence of defects. It’s not recommended to wait until these issues escalate to a point where the expenses become overwhelming, and the roof requires major repair.
During the fall season, the roof’s integrity is similarly checked, its overall condition is assessed, and defects are identified. Additionally, it’s beneficial to clear any accumulated debris.
MAINTENANCE OF FLAT ROOFS: SUBTLETIES TO CONSIDER
THE MOST COMMON ROOFING PROBLEMS AND THEIR ORIGIN
As for leaks, they are different: rain; dry; flickering.
The first arise due to the damage in the roofing pie or when there is a leak in the places of connection. Dry leaks can be observed regardless of moisture, because of the fact that the thermal insulation layer is simply wet due to accumulated condensate. Flickering leaks occur from time to time, and the weather in this case does not play any role. The broken technology of laying the material or the presence of micro cracks in it are the ones to blame.
And of course, even when arranging the roof, it is necessary to pay attention to the quality of materials and fasteners. It is important to observe the installation technology with extreme care. Physical deterioration of the roof or a failed drainage system also acts as a cause of leaks. It is also not necessary to exclude mechanical damage due to hail, beating of tree branches, even fungal lesions can eventually lead to a violation of the integrity of the roof and the formation of other defects.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SAFETY MEASURES DURING ROOFING WORK
Concerning the attire of the workers, it should be as comfortable as possible: no dangling strings or ties, and absolutely no slippery shoes. Only boots with soft, thick soles that don’t leave marks on surfaces are allowed.
For comfortable and safe movement across the roof, especially sloped ones, it’s advisable to use walkway bridges with special handrails.
