Flat roofs, like any other roof type, have to be inspected regularly. This activity is a must and it’s by no means waste of time. It ensures a longer roof life and saves the owners money in the future. Flat roof inspections should be done by professional roofers who have been in a position to see and inspect numerous flat roofs in their career and are able to spot the possible roof problem instantly. Roof technicians from a certified company DNB Construction, LLC who are among other services, in charge of flat roof inspections, have talked about a couple of roof elements that they always inspect when they visit the client.
- All – inclusive roof’s inspections
Professional roofers take into consideration overall weather conditions in the area. They pay special attention to heavy rains, strong winds, or storms that may damage a great portion of the flat roof. If they notice the smallest traces of damage, they suggest all necessary activities aiming at which elements have to be repaired or, in some cases, replaced.
- Gutters’ condition
On-site flat roof inspections start with a detailed and planned to look at a building’s gutters. It is vital that they are clean and in perfect condition. No debris should be found inside gutters. If there are gutter problems, they may back up water on the roof which will result in roof leaks or other serious flat roof damage.
- Condition of an HVAC unit
Experienced roofers always pay attention to the HVAC unit and its actual condition. It has to be mounted properly. In case that there are some problems with the HVAC unit or the additional elements that hold it, they need to be resolved ASAP. When the water is pooling around the HVAC unit base, it may cause great problems, so professional roofers are there to solve this issue.
- Flashing’s condition
During an on-site roof inspection, roofers take a look at the roof’s flashing. It mustn’t be missing, torn, or loose, and the bond between the base flashing and the mat’s edge has to be proper. Additionally, the flashing needs to be turned up adequately not to allow water to back up and cause a leak. What is more, if there are some traces of rust on the flashing, or the coating that protects the metals has gone, roofers suggest immediate activities.
