Look at the Edge of Your Roof

by Cal Reese, CentiMark Director Global Accounts, Denver, CO

MetalEdgeAn inspection is the key to identify what is needed to reinforce the roof edge

Our skilled roofing inspectors examine:

- Drip Edge, Fascia, Gravel Stop
- Coping
- Gutters & Downspouts 

General information about roof edge enhancements:

Investigations of roof failures immediately after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 determined that over 60% of the roofs began to fail at the roof edge first. Many of these failures can be prevented with proper details, inspection, installation and design. (Source: FM Global and RICOWI - Roofing Industry Committee on Weather Issues, Inc.)

Gutter and downspout systems, often overlooked, have a wind standard as well and can have enhancements and reinforcements.

Think color for an attractive metal edge on your roof and gutter system. For an aesthetic upgrade of the exterior of your building, there are 30 standard Kynar colors available with a 30 year finish warranty. Combine metal edge protection with attractive colors for your roof system.
