Roof Drainage & Spring Maintenance Tips

Posted Apr 27th, 2017

Spring is the time of fresh starts and new beginnings. You clean up the landscaping, clear out the closets and put away the snow shovels, but you may forget about your roof. Now is also an important time to make sure your roof drains are unclogged and functioning properly. Look out for some of the following:

Seagulls, geese and other flying birds like Kill-deers make many rooftops their home. Nests get built and roof drains become the catch-all for this makeshift nature reserve. Check for nesting debris, twigs, feathers, string and other bits of material that will block-up the free flow of water thru your roof drainage system.

Water Ponding is common if your commercial or industrial building is from 1990 or older, as chances are positive drainage was not incorporated into the design and building function. Most of these older situations have roofs with zero slope. Slight sloped design considerations now allow for water to escape properly, also most current roofs have overflows on them which eliminate rains from storm events. If you have a dead flat roof, you may have to contact a reliable roofing contractor who can advise you on how to improve your existing roof system.
