Expansion & Contraction
From the past 3 decades of roofing, along with our good ole science lesson from high school we know that expansion and contraction can occur within certain materials due to changes in temperature. On numerous occasions, we have witness roof membranes ballooning or trampolining as a result.
When a roofing contractor chooses not to take a roof membrane up and over the parapet walls, they are exponentially increasing the chances of roofing issues as the weather changes. Designing the roof system so that the edge of the roof membrane meets the bottom of a parapet wall or ledge leaves the roof potentially exposed to leaks.
A few weeks ago, we discussed how to choose between contractors when comparing quotes. This is just one more area to note when reviewing the quotes. Is the contractor offering you a proposal that is what’s best for your unique roof situation?
