Towson Roofing Pros Explains the Importance of Roof Curbs in Baltimore’s Parkville Neighborhood



Published on June 30, 2023

Towson Roofing Pros, a roofing contractor based in Towson, MD, explained the importance of roof edges in Baltimore and surrounding areas. Rooftops are raised metal frames for mounting structures on the roof. These frames are intended for accessories that are to be mounted on the roof and also those that penetrate the roof surface. When installed correctly, the roof frame ensures that the accessory has a level platform for its attachment. It is also clad with a roof sheet to prevent water damage from water ingress through the roof membrane.

Typical applications for roof curbs include: hatches, skylights and smoke vents, exhaust fans and HVAC units. Hatches are used to access the roof. Skylights and smoke vents serve to let in light and vent noxious gases. Exhaust fans can be installed on the roof to extract air from ducts inside the building to the outside. Finally, the condensing units for HVAC systems can be mounted on the roofs through the roof frames.

Towson Roofing Pros would also like to stress the importance of planning roof edges as there are various details to consider. First of all, it is important to know the roof pitch as well as the style and manufacturer of the roof panel. This is because different panels have different rib height requirements and different profile styles. Knowing the paint color is also important as roof frames can be custom painted to match the roof.

They want to point out that roof frames must be fitted correctly and leaks checked. Because of this, professional installers such as the experts at Towson Roofing Pros are required to ensure a proper installation. Poorly installed roof rails can result in a performance loss of up to 30 percent in airflow systems due to leaks, airflow losses and temperature drops.

Meanwhile, for commercial roofing work, Towson Roofing Pros offers some advice. A spokesman for the roofing company says: “Before hiring a commercial roofing company, make sure they have all the licenses and insurance required for the job.” This will prevent you from being held liable for any injury or accident sustained during the project may occur. You should also check if the commercial roofer you are considering has workers’ compensation insurance. This is a requirement in most states and can protect you from lawsuits if an employee is injured while working at your facility.”

In order to find a reliable commercial roofer, you may also need to consult colleagues and friends who also own businesses in the same area. In particular, they can provide information about the quality of the work performed. They would like to point out that Towson Roofing Pros specialize in residential roof installation, roof inspections, roof repairs, gutter and downspout installation, flat roof installation with burners and commercial roofing.
