SoCal RCI SEMINAR SEPT 28th-Roof Drainage: Understanding, Analyzing and Correcting Roof Drainage Problems

TELL RCI You Saw It Here!

Inadequate roof drainage is a common problem found on many existing low-sloped roofs and on some new buildings. There are many reasons why drainage problems occur on new and existing buildings and the correction of such problems can range from simple to very complex.
There are some questions that need to be answered by the consultant, specifier, contractor and/or building owner, to ensure that the roof drainage complies with the applicable building codes, plumbing codes and the roofing material manufacture warranty. These questions include: 1) Do you have a drainage problem, 2) What are the problems, 3) What are the options for correct action, 4) What is right action for the specific project.
The intent of this seminar is to assist the attendees in answering these questions by providing you with useful information and/or identifying applicable sources of useful information that will allow you to better evaluate the existing roof drainage and to determine what corrective action is required. Having a knowledge of the applicable manufacturer requirements and codes, and a knowledge of the options available are critical to conducting both the proper analysis of the roof drainage and in determining what action should be taken if corrective action is required.
