FAQ - Superior Grade Roof Drain Sump Pans and Roof Drains For Flat Roofs

REDUCE LABOR COSTS/INCREASE PRODUCTION FOR CONTRACTORS:

These roof drain sump pans can dramatically increase production on roofing projects .The pre-fabricated roof drain pan and roof drain can be installed in minutes rather than hours required to build wood boxes thereby reducing labor costs and increasing production. 

SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN UNNECESSARY ROOF REPAIRS

Standing rainwater may contain acid rain and other environmental contaminants that can be extremely corrosive and destructive to the roof covering. Over time, they can completely destroy the roof, requiring expensive repair or replacement. Sump pans eliminate standing rainwater and eliminate the need for repairs.   

EXCESSIVE ROOF LOAD IS DANGEROUS

Standing rainwater can place an excessive load on a flat roof to the point of causing the flat roof to collapse. Installing roof drain sump pans eliminate the standing rainwater and may save thousands of dollars on property damage. 

ELIMINATE FLAT ROOF SLOPING COSTS

 When you sump or lower the roof drains on the low spots of the flat roof, they automatically become the lowest points on the flat roof. Water will naturally gravitate toward them. Doing this may eliminate the cost of resloping the entire flat roof iwhich is  VERY EXPENSIVE. 

NOTE: Sloping may be the only correct solution. 

What makes these roof drain pans superior?

  • Fabricated and assembled on state-of-the-art modern laser machines.
  • Precision cut and assembled parts, mounting holes and tabs make for perfect lines, angles and dimensions. This quality fabrication means a perfect fit to the roof drain and to the flat roof. 
  •  Steel riveted joints for added strength.

What are the other methods of "sumping" a roof drain?

The two main methods are wood sump box or tapered insulation

Wood sump box

  • Until now there hasn't been a uniform roof drain sump pan that you can buy over the counter that was designed to lower the primary and overflow roof drains. Rather, the contractor was left to figure it all out.
  • The main method or technology for sumping roof drains for flat roofs has been to build a wood sump box constructed on the job using construction materials. This method is labor intensive and inconvenient.

 

Insulated Flat Roofs

Modern roofing often uses insulation to slope to the roof drains.
