Roof Drains and Proper Drainage


Roof drainage is one of the most important aspect of roofing.  The longer water is on your roof, the longer it has to find a way through your roof system.

There are different kinds of roof drainage systems.  The most common are eaves (open edges of your roof), roof scuppers (holes through walls), and roof drains (holes through the roof into drainage pipes).  Roof scuppers and roof drains need the most attention because they are more likely to clog and interfere with water draining off of the roof.

Simple steps can be taken to help keep water flowing off of your roof instead of into your house or building.  Routine maintenance and cleaning, including removal of trash and debris with emphasis on keeping the scuppers and drains cleared.  We always recommend cleaning at least once per year, preferably before the monsoon season. 

Don't let your roof be victim to the "out of sight, out of mind" attitude that we are all accustomed to.
