The upcoming spring is a welcomed relief from the cold, winter weather. As the snow begins to melt, be sure to inspect your building for damage and performance issues. Repairing relatively minor issues today can prevent those issues from becoming larger, more costly problems tomorrow.
Key areas for your springtime inspection should include:
- Gutter and downspouts
- Roof penetrations – such as roof curbs and skylights
- Roof-to-wall transitions
- Accessory flashings – such as those above window or door openings
Snow often causes water to work its way into the mentioned areas and the subsequent freeze-thaw cycle damages various components, allowing water to enter the building.
In preparation for next winter’s weather, many customers choose to have additional gutter hangers supplied with their replacement gutter to prevent gutter pullout and collapse from high snow loading. You may want to consider adding a snow retention system to protect people and equipment from dangerous snow and ice avalanches.
