Walkpads are one extra minor step that can make a major impact on the longevity of your roof.
Walkpads should be installed strategically in all high traffic areas and around all rooftop equipment. HVAC units, pumps, outlets, vents and power stations that are serviced throughout the year increase the foot traffic on your roof, making the roof more susceptible to punctures in the membrane. Simply adding a walkpad, which is a thicker membrane directly over your roof can reduce the number of incidences.
In addition, walkpads serve as a safety mechanism. They are typically textured creating better traction on flat and low sloped roofs. Walkpads are traditionally a different color than the roof membrane which clearly marks where to safely walk on the roof.
The costs of adding walkpads is minor but can save you big. Reach out to us today for a quote on installing walkpads on your roof. (330) 359-2030
