Full-service Towson, Maryland, roofing company Towson Roofing Pros is helping local homeowners understand the utility of and care for roof curbs.
Roof curbs are raised structures installed on flat roofs to support mechanical equipment such as HVAC systems, exhaust fans, skylights, and more. They are designed to elevate these critical roofing elements above the roof surface to create a barrier that prevents water infiltration and air leakage.
They come in all different shapes and sizes depending on the type of equipment they will be supporting. Residential and commercial property owners can choose from a variety of materials including galvanized steel or aluminum, the latter of which is known to be durable and resistant to corrosion. Some models may also have insulation or soundproofing features.
When installing a roof curb, experienced roofers make sure that it is securely attached to the roof deck using screws or bolts. The base of the curb should also be sealed with flashing or a waterproof membrane to prevent water from seeping into the building. Depending on the type of equipment being supported, additional brackets or supports may be necessary to prevent shifting or movement.
To care for roof curbs, regular inspections need regular inspections to check for any signs of damage or wear. If any screws or bolts become loose, they should be tightened immediately to prevent the curb from shifting or becoming unstable. The flashing or waterproof membrane should also be inspected periodically to ensure it is intact and free from cracks or tears.
The spokesperson for Townson Roofing Pros talks about the need for regularly inspecting and repairing roof curbs by saying, “Roof curbs are an essential component of many flat roofs, providing support for mechanical equipment while protecting the building from water infiltration and air leakage. Proper installation and maintenance are critical to ensure their long-term performance and prevent costly repairs or replacements.
