Planning for Rooftop Curbs: What do you need to know?

Are you thinking about installing rooftop curbs? It’s a good call—they can help save energy, as well as prevent leaks, temperature loss, and airflow loss. But that’s only if they are properly installed and tailored to your building!

Why is a customized curb and professional installation so important? Here’s a few reasons why!

Prevent Leaks

When roof curbs are improperly installed, you can end up with roof leaks. What may start as a small leak with only a few drops of water occasionally can turn into a huge problem quicker than you realize. As the seal weakens, more water will come through, damaging other parts of your building, damaging equipment, and even creating fall hazards for employees.

Save Energy

Just like an improperly installed roof curb can leave gaps for leaks, those gaps can also make it harder to balance the temperature inside. Your HVAC unit will end up working even harder and using even more energy in a struggle to regulate the temp inside due to air escaping through these gaps.

Avoid Air Quality Issues

Whatever industry you work in, there are often harmful byproducts created somewhere in your process, whether it’s gasses, chemicals, or strong smells. When roof curbs are incorrectly installed, real damage can be done to the airflow within your building, making it a potentially dangerous environment for those inside.

With all these factors in mind, along with professional and expert installation, you can have peace of mind that your roof will be secure and lower your energy costs!
