A regular roof maintenance program is fundamental to the satisfactory long-term performance of your newly installed roof.
Limit access to your roof to authorized personnel only, meaning those with a real need to be there.
Inspect the roof at least semi-annually, in the spring and autumn. Also inspect the roof after any severe winds or storms and after any event causing damage to your roof or building.
Keep roof free of debris such as branches, leaves, bottles, rocks, cans, soil or anything else that could plug drains or cause a puncture to the roofing membrane. All drains and scuppers should be checked to ensure they are not plugged and are free-flowing.
Some walls are susceptible to wind blown water intrusion, periodically determine if additional water sealant is needed to maintain water tightness for these type walls. Water entering your building or the roof through walls will damage the roof.
Metal Components and Roofing Accessories:
Inspect the condition of all metal for evidence of rusting, loose metal, wind deformation and joint integrity. Inspect the metal/membrane bond for voids or other possible conditions that could permit water infiltration.
Check all metal parts for deterioration, any clamping rings to ensure they are tight, and all sealant beads to ensure they shed water and are sealed tight to the pipe.
Make sure that all drains and scuppers are free from clogs. Check all drain bolts for tightness. Inspect any metal to membrane bond for voids or other possible conditions that could permit water infiltration. Clean debris from around strainers and secure drain strainers.
Roof Top Equipment:
Inspected for evidence of rusting, wind deformation and joint integrity.
Inspect any metal to membrane bond for voids or possible points of water infiltration. Piping secured to a base or metal flange should continue to have protection material under the blocking. Make sure that protection work pads are maintained in the work areas around the units.
