Safety Issues Another thing you will need to consider before you even begin to replace that roof, is what safety issues are going to be involved and how you can minimize them. Any time you are working on the roof of a building there are dangers involved because you may be carrying heavy loads of shingles up and down ladders, working on steep inclines, as well as other situations. Knowing how to minimize the risk to your safety before hand is essential in successfully completely the job without injury to yourself, or to others.

It's best to detail the roof's size, shape, slope, deck construction, edge detailing, protrusions, rooftop access and existing roofing system. Along with this basic information, you need to find out why the original roof is no longer adequate.

But, if the facility has a special use, such as an airline reservation center with computers in it, then your considerations for roofing options are quite different.

It stops water from getting under the shingles and damaging the deck plywood and protects fascia. Properly applied drip edge will lengthen the life of the roof and further protect the home from water damage.

If a roof consistently has lost a lot of its granules it is definitely time to replace it. Without an adequate amount of granule, which helps reflect the UV rays and protect the more sensitive lower layers of the material, the roof will soon be leaking. However, if the roof has enough granules that you consistently cannot see the underlying composition layers, the chances are good that, withstanding other issues, it might have more life remaining.

When the same location has leaked and been repaired repeatedly, it may never have been adequately addressed and the same mistaken repair may be continuing to be performed. It will be critical to get an assessment for a roof leak repair expert as to whether there is something un-repairable or if the past repairs addressed the wrong issue. Don't let one bad spot to cost you an entire new roof!
Gladys Buckner Roof, 2018-06-29 16:19:53. Reflectivity It's no secret that dark colors attract and hold heat better than light colors. In a study conducted by the US Department of Agriculture, it was determined that an attic space under a dark colored roof (dark gray or black) that was installed over plywood sheathing was 10 degrees warmer on a day with full sun when compared to a lighter colored roof (white or very light gray). Although it was found that there were smaller differences when dark colors were compared to the lighter colors, the study reported that the only significant difference was found with extreme dark colors compared to extreme light colors. Although this may be important to a large warehouse or industrial building, it is suggested that you focus on choosing a roof color that is aesthetically pleasing and not worry too much about how the color may impact efficiency.

Look for boots that are flexible, and that can allow you to walk far on different inclines and different roof surfaces.

For an extra grip on your feet, get shoes that allow for easy lacing.
