Checking The Proper Installation Of Roofing Fixtures
Most people assume the main source of roofing problems to be the damage of sheeting or tiles, more often than not it’s the fixtures that cause issues. Improper installation of roofing fixtures can have a serious impact on the structure of your roof. They can also allow water to penetrate your roofing, making its way inside to cause serious damage. As your roof can be hard to access, the work carried out during the installation of roofing fixtures is rarely checked once completed.
A common mistake we see when it comes to the installation of fixtures is poor or incorrect sealing. Silicone could be the most abused building material we have ever seen. Improper installation can also refer to damage caused by foot traffic and access during the install. As water ingress is the most likely outcome from poorly installed penetrations, having your roof checked after a fixture is installed makes a tremendous amount of sense financially.
