Fragile roofs are describe as roofs made of materials

that cannot support the weight of a person or the load that comes with it.

Before starting work or accessing the roof, a professional roofer must first assess. the fragility of the roof. Warning signs should be erect and access points should be lock.

  • When assessing the fragility of the roof, several factors must be take into account:
  • Material thickness
  • Support interval
  • Page profile
  • Type, number, location and quality of confirmations
  • Construction of the support structure
  • the age of the material

In particular, the age of the material is an important factor to consider. Over time, the roof can deteriorate, so what was erect to be safe can become. fragile over time.

On some roofs, the danger may be visible. For others, the risks may be less obvious.

For example, a roof that has lasted twenty or thirty years

may have accumulated debris or be stain, requiring a more thorough inspection. Also, only a small part of the roof can be fragile. A good example is areas where. ceiling joints or supporting structures are weak, or areas where. lighting fixtures are install.
