Roof Curb Flashing Can Help Weather the Storm
Weather can affect any industry. That can be due to many factors: wind, heavy rain, and winter storms as well. This can become an issue when the elements rush into buildings and facilities without warning. That is why Design Components Inc. offers solutions like roof curb flashing to keep those elements out of your facilities.
Adding Stability to Your Roofing with Roof Curb Flashing
Did you know that 40% of building related issues come from water leaks? And, if water gets into your building it isn’t just a matter of possible damage costs for the building and equipment, you can be looking at extreme safety risks as well. Flashing is constructed to help direct flow of water around areas vulnerable to rooftop leakage. Design Components Inc. takes the sustainability of your roof and building seriously offering several options for roof curb flashings.
DCI’s Roof Curb Flashing Options
Our Dektite® flashing is made of a long-life, weatherproof EPDM rubber. This compound allows for a stronger resistance to maximum weather, ozone and ultra-violet light. The rubber conforms to a majority of roof pitch and panel configurations. It allows pipe vibration by isolating movement caused by expansion or contraction of a metal roof. The installation process is an easy task – the flashings are attached to steel, aluminum, copper, plastic, fiberglass, or wood. With five easy steps it takes less than 10 minutes to keep your metal roof crack free with this roof flashing.
A flashing that is perfect for metal roof curbs would be our Dek-Cap® flashings. These flashings are constructed of thermal elastometer rubber and contain corrosion-resistant aluminum bases that conform to roof panels. Dek-Cap® flashings are pre-formed to reduce installation time by working with both left- and right-handed seams. This helps accuracy as well as ensures you get your roof curb flashings installed diligently.
An expandable edged flashing to consider would be our Dekstrip® flashings. The Dekstrip® Flashings feature heat weld and contain 25% stretch. These are primarily used for parapet walls and chimneys, stepped roofs and transition walls. However, they are just as effective on square and round roof penetration. They’re lightweight, compact and eliminate screw hole elongation. This roof flashing can be painted to match your surface so you can be truly satisfied with your roof curb flashing.
