Subjects covered: preventive inspections (2x/year and snow removal), minor repairs (caulkings, open membrane joints, infiltrations, blisters/wrinkles, drainage) and possible/available solutions before complete replacement (localized repairs and resurfacing). Even if roofs are usually out of everyone’s sight, they still require the owners attention. The sustainability of a roof starts with regular inspection and maintenance. Some minor repairs may be needed annually but the complete replacement of a roof may be delayed using alternative solutions which are financially interesting. .
Sujets touchés : inspections préventives (2x/an, déneigement), réparations mineures (calfeutrant, joints ouverts, infiltrations, boursouflures/plissements, drainage), solutions possibles/disponibles avant une réfection complète (réparations locales, resurfaçage). Bien que les toitures ne soient généralement pas à la vue de tous, celles-ci demandent tout de même qu’on s’occupe d’elles. La pérennité d’une toiture commence par l’inspection et l’entretien de celle-ci. Certains travaux mineurs de remise en forme peuvent être nécessaires annuellement mais la réfection complète d’une couverture peut être retardée par des solutions alternatives financièrement intéressantes.
