Inspect your roof

  • InspectionClear all debris off the roof (dirt, rocks, branches, leaves, etc…)
  • Clean out drains and gutters to ensure proper drainage can occur, preventing ponded water
  • Remove any overhanging tree branches or anything else that could penetrate the roof surface
  • Install walk pads in high traffic areas - especially around roof hatches and equipment systems
  • Inspect and insure all equipment is properly flashed and watertight
  • Inspect all areas for leaks and deterioration – pay attention to stains and discoloration of the roof edges and surrounding walls as they are possible indications of a leak
  • Take note of any trouble areas that could cause leaks, damage or deterioration and call your National Coating representative 800-423-9557 for further guidance.
