Many contractors are assigned with one difficult task to accomplish: How to identify roof problems. Here is our list of common areas on where to inspect and discover those roof problems. Although, there could be different areas that you have to investigate, these are the most repeated scenarios.
It is not a simple as installing lots of drain openings. The building's drain system should consist of reasonable drain openings, adequate pitch from high point to drainage components. It is a good practice to include overflow scuppers through different areas to avoid accumulation of water in case on an emergency. Proper maintenance should be given to all of these areas.
It is very easy to install the A/C compressor, the satellite antenna and other components directly to the surface. Proper attention should be given when this kind of equipment is being installed. They should never be mounted or placed directly to the top of the roof membrane. They should be mounted to a support structure or to raised curb-type supports. Flat flange or curb flashing can then be used to keep the roof watertight, and roof replacement and recovering can be done without disturbing or removing the equipment.
