Ready Your Roof for Spring


Has Winter Wreaked Havoc on Your Roof?

Winter’s high-speed winds, severe storms, snow and other inclement weather often lead to ponded water, fallen branches, and a buildup of sticks, leaves and dirt on a roofing system. This debris can cause serious damage by tearing or puncturing the surface, damaging counter flashings, clogging drains and allowing water to seep beneath the surface into the insulation. Left untreated, you can face expensive, time-consuming repairs.

Ready Your Roof for Spring

With spring upon us, it’s a good time to have a trained roofing professional inspect your roof and assess its condition. Doing so helps keep your roof in top working condition and avoids damage or water infiltration that can accelerate aging and deterioration.

Has Winter Wreaked Havoc on Your Roof?

Spring Forward with a Tremco Roofing Visual Inspection

Spring is the perfect time to check up on your roof after a harsh winter. Tremco Roofing’s free visual inspection examines your roof for surface issues, such as damaged counter flashings, split membranes, clogged drains and open pitch pans. How can these issues affect your roof?

1. Damaged Counter Flashings

Counter flashings installed around roof penetrations – such as wall details, chimneys, skylights, stacks, valleys and rakes – are subject to parched caulking, separation and lifting due to expansion and contraction, which can be a source of water entry into a building or roofing system.

2. Clogged Drains

Over time, branches, leaves and other debris can collect and build up on a roof, leading to clogged drains. This often results in areas of ponded water, which in turn can contribute to roof deterioration and trapped moisture, causing leakage.

3. Open Pitch Pans

If improperly installed or not maintenanced routinely, pitch pans will eventually dry out and crack due to a loss of plasticizer or aging, allowing water to seep into the roof assembly.
4. Membrane Splits

Pressure, ponded water and poor workmanship can cause roof membranes to split and blister, leading to cracks that usually run parallel to felt and insulation joints. When this occurs, water can pass through the roofing system.
