West Seneca, NY (PRWEB) June 03, 2013
The National Roofing Contractors Association has updated its recommendations in regards to roof edge specifications in the Northeast due to serious damage from water infiltrating into the homeowners inside walls due to improper drip edge installation.
“This new specification is probably the most crucial part of the roof installation process, especially in the Western New York area because of its severe weather conditions,” said William J. Sahlem, President of Sahlem’s Roofing & Siding, Inc.
The new recommendation includes specifics for installation of a drip edge on steep slope roof systems.
Many times the homeowner is unaware of water infiltration because there are no visible signs of leakage in the house. However, this problem can be causing serious damage to the inside of the walls. Often times, the homeowner will not know until it’s too late.
