For the commercial roofing industry, roof curbs are essential to the complete functioning of a roofing system. Roof curbs are used on virtually all flat roofs and are critical to protecting both the roof itself and rooftop-mounted appliances like HVAC equipment, pipes, and other hardware.

Because of how integral roof curbs are to the success of any commercial roofing project, the team at Ian Baker Specialist Weathering Systems has teamed up to bring you the low-down on these vital pieces of construction: what they are, how they work, and why they matter to commercial roofing installations and repairs.

It’s common for leaks to develop around roof curbing as it’s an area of vulnerability that can be compromised as environmental factors degrade roofing materials and allow water to penetrate through openings in a building’s exterior walls or roof structure.

Do you think your commercial roof might be in need of a proper inspection performed by a trained professional? Contact Ian Baker Specialist Weathering Systems today! Please call us on 07976570950, we’ll be happy to help!
