For as long as roofing has been a trade, every roofing contractor knows that the first and foremost concept and unbroken rule of completing a functional long term roofing system is to make sure that the application guarantees the finished surface is water tight and impenetrable. Other than the obvious, but just as important if not more, is the ongoing protection and structural integrity of the roof decking itself. So, as professional installers, we make sure that the roofing application protects every square inch of the decking within the entire perimeter of the building structure.
But what about the perimeter itself? Have we ever given much thought about wind driven rains and the high probability in sustained weather conditions of its ability to infiltrate the perimeter and get between the drip edge or valley flashings and the actual roof covering?
Well, as a roofing contractor for the last 44 years, doing tear offs has revealed more than a few times that rotten and degraded decking around the perimeter was due to lateral water intrusion between the drip edge and flashings, and not from a failure of the roof covering itself. So, in order to cover all bases and to install the best water tight roofing system possible, we have introduced our new perimeter seal.
