How can you void your Roof Warranty?

  • Not performing Regular maintenance – Regular maintenance will prolong the life of any roof. Think of it as an oil change, even when you buy a brand new car you still need the oil changed.
  • Not performing regular Inspections – This should be performed at least once a year, preferably twice. After winter preferably as is the most stressful season for any building envelope.
  • Not Conduct additional inspections immediately after extreme hail, heavy rains, fires, etc.
  • Not assuring that your roof is kept clean and free of debris.
  • Not warning equipment servicemen going on the roof to be careful with their tools and materials. The smallest nail can puncture the roofing membrane causing voids for water entry into your building.
  • Allowing unqualified people or businesses to maintain your roof.
  • Allowing up traffic on the roof without ensuring qualifications.
  • Not taking a reactive approach to maintaining your roof.
  • Dealing with firms who will not stand behind their work. No product is better than the applicator.

Preventative Maintenance

Problems

  • Poor, inconsistent weld
  • Seam voids
  • Fastener placement
  • Fasteners too long, or too short
  • Unadhered membrane
  • Unadhered base flashing
  • Contaminated roof substrate

  • Abuse of installed roof

Solutions

  • Conduct test welds; probe all seams
  • Don’t start and stop welding excessively
  • Adjust screw gun clutch setting
  • Ensure fastener engages deck, in top flange
  • Use correct adhesives at right rate and temp
  • Use initial priming, 2nd adhesive application
  • Use broom or blower prior to installation
  • Follow fastener placement guidelines
  • Protect membrane; use job sequencing

“As long as the cost of maintenance is less than 1.6%of the initial cost of the project, the cost of the maintained roof-on an annual basis-will be less than the un-maintained roof.”
