How to use technology to avoid a roofing disaster and extend the lifespan of your roof.  

Preventative roof care is the best way to avoid roofing problems. Your roof, as one of the most vulnerable parts of your home, needs regular inspection, maintenance and repair to work properly. With regular inspections, you can catch costly repairs before they turn into monster reroofing nightmares.  

One of the reasons you need to monitor your roof consistently is because water can cause devastating damage to your roof, either through leaks or clogged roofing drains, putting an enormous weight on your roof. Knowing this, wouldn’t it be nice if you could install some kind of monitor that could alert you when water was more likely to leak and damage your roof? Good news. We know just the technology you need. 

Tremco’s  KnoviSM Monitoring Technology and SmartDrain™ roof top sensors are game changing technology in the challenge of keeping rooftop drains clear of debris and of disaster. Tremco's SmartDrain solutions attach to your rooftop drains and capture data to keep your roof monitored 24/7, sending alerts through the SmartGateway™ when they detect rising water levels around your drain. 

This technology allows you to avoid drain disasters before they happen. Additionally, this monitoring solution provides you with much more data so you can make informed choices about your roof. Other benefits of this technology include: 

  • Better decisions and quicker identification of priorities.  

  • Easy tracking of roofing assets. 

  • Customizable reporting that includes inspection reports, budget summaries and work maintenance recommendations.   

  • 24/7 security and accessibility.  

  • Access to historical data.
