Flat Roof Drains

Flat Roof Drains

All flat roof buildings and large deck areas on the upper floors of buildings have roof or area drains to drain water off and dispatch appropriately to prevent damage.

Roof drains aren’t something the average person thinks about, but they are very important when keeping your building and contents dry. The roof is either sloped to exterior downspouts or roof drains funnel the rainwater into rainwater leaders that run to a storm sewer. Regular roof drain maintenance can prevent blockages that cause pooling water, which often can add to the weight on the roof, and cause damage to the pipes or roof itself.

To prevent freezing and blockages in cold weather, vulnerable rainwater leaders should be strapped with heat tape and insulated to prevent icing up. If RWL’s do freeze up, the best-case scenario is the water backing up on the roof – worst case is compromising the leaders themselves and flooding water into the building.

Call us to have one of our highly qualified plumbers find solutions to your roof drainage system.

  • Backflow Installation, Testing, Maintenance
  • Clearing Clogged Toilets & Sinks

  • Drain Cleaning

To avoid clogged roof drains:

  • Keep your roof clean of debris (look for leaves or garbage) that may build up at your drain hoppers
  • Regular maintenance and cleaning of the drains

If you do not maintain your roof drainage:

  • pooling water can weaken the roofing material and the seal over time causing leaks
  • water can freeze causing damage that is not always visible
