Observation From The Field: Inadequate Details Result in Roof Leaks

Benchmark Service: Evaluation

Issue: A recently installed surgical center roof build based on a contractor scope of work was experiencing numerous leaks and disrupting the schedule.

Solution: Benchmark, Inc. was hired to perform a roof evaluation and identify the source of the leaks.  Benchmark discovered several simple details were not designed or constructed properly.  One example – pitch pans did not utilize primer on the metal support penetrations, therefore the pourable sealer did not stick to the metal, allowing leaks to occur.

Possible Impact: Roof leaks were impacting the surgical center operations, increasing risk and reducing expected roof life.

Lack of primer on metal pitch pans resulted in leaks.
