Roof parapet installation

Roof parapet repair

Why install a roof parapet?

The roof parapet prevents water from the high wall from dripping onto the masonry. For optimal protection, it is important to choose a parapet with a good thickness, from 26 to 28 gauges. The lower the gauge, the thicker the metal.

What is the roof parapet?

The parapet is a metal structure that connects the roof to the exterior masonry wall. In order to be truly effective, the parapet must allow a good clearance from ¾ to 1 inch outside the masonry. A drip line must also be installed to allow water to drain outside the masonry wall.

What is the purpose of the roof parapet?

The roof parapet is used to prevent water infiltration and protect the masonry wall from degradation. A poorly installed, misaligned and improperly designed roof parapet causes water to infiltrate a brick wall. This results in damage to the brick and brick joints.

In fact, people often turn to CAM Construction for repairs and the installation of a roof parapet. This last intervention is inexpensive and avoids more costly problems. Indeed, repairing damage caused by water infiltration can be much more expensive than installing an adequate roof parapet.
