Hi Everyone is Matt with Trinity Roofing and Restoration, talking again about parapet walls during an inspection.
It’s not bad, but it’s kind of best practice to have that role come all the way up instead of creating additional seams if it’s not necessary. Sometimes, people will go all the way up on one roll and coming down with the second roll. That could be what’s done here, we’re not sure and we’re not going to open it up to find out. But. We’d like to see it continues as much as possible, so there are fewer seams on the route and fewer possibilities for leaks.
Again, we’ve got some rusted fasteners here, and you can see some of the sealant and caulking is starting to dry out.
One of the biggest clear signs that this is already leaking or has been linking is all the mold and mildew growth on the wall. Generally, on a wall the water is going to rundown is not going to stay, but it’s consistently and constantly dripping from a faster that’s leaking or from a seal that’s leaking up here, you’re going to see this molding move in here.
So, all along this sidewalk here, we’ve been a lot of this mold and mildew on the wall, consistent with signs that this parapet wall is not sealed up properly.
If you guys have a wall that is not sealed up, maybe got some leaks coming in or your tenant or the rest of your building Give us a call, have us come out and look at it.
