Observation From The Field: Addressing Drainage During Installation

Benchmark Service: Roof Evaluation

Issue: An area of new roof installation was located directly above several wall-mounted exhaust fans. New gutters had not yet been installed, and water could potentially drain over the open eave, directly into the exhaust fans.

Solution: Benchmark directed the roofer to install a temporary gutter system above the wall-mounted exhaust fans to divert water to the sides of the wall openings.

Possible Impact: This roof area was located above active food production. Water infiltration into the production area could potentially cause a production stoppage. Considering all aspects of potential impact to interior activities during roof replacement ensures the client can proceed with business as usual while work is being performed.
