Proper Roof Drainage

Improper Roof Drainage and Structural Damage:

Improper drainage from your roof can cause catastrophic roof failure and/or damage to your building’s structure. A gallon of water weighs over 8 pounds, and if your roof is not displacing a majority of the water from a rainstorm, your roof can very quickly become an enormous burden on the structure of your building.

Proper, Positive Drainage:

Low-Slope roofing is designed to have a positive drainage in one or more directions so that water has the ability to leave the roof. Water may drain directly to a gutter system, or if your building has parapet walls, through a system of scupper drains prior to draining into gutters. Should any of these items become clogged by leaves, debris or ice, the resulting trapped water can tear the roof membrane or worse.

An Inspection is Needed:

Every building with a low-slope roof should be inspected for proper roof drainage regularly. We are happy to take a look at your roof system to ensure that as your building has aged, it has not shifted to a point that water no longer drains properly. Also, you need to be certain that your gutter system is capable of displacing the water from your roof by regularly cleaning downspouts and gutters. Call us today to schedule an inspection and we will check the entire system for you and devise a plan before it is too late.
