What Are Roof Curbs?
Though this might come with a little bit more up-front cost, you’ll increase the longevity of your roof system as well as provide the protection of proper attachment of your rooftop equipment.

How to Choose the Right Roof Curbs for Your Commercial Roof
While there are many choices available in terms of roof curbs for commercial roofs, you most likely won’t have to worry about choosing the correct one, as your roofers will use their expertise to analyze your roof’s needs and ensure that the proper roof curb is installed.
These considerations are of vital importance, as they tell your roofer which type of roof curb will be both utilitarian and safe for decades to come.
It’s important to keep in mind that installation of roof curbs is not a job for roofers alone; in fact, some applications require more than one trade to complete, with some needing three or more different subcontractors. For example, mechanical applications such as those involving exhaust fans, HVAC units or other electrical components require an electrician; similarly, applications that include skylights, hatches or other architectural features require an architect to be on hand.
No matter how large or small your commercial building’s roof is, structural reinforcements are important to make sure your building’s rooftop fans, HVAC units and other roof-mounted components are securely attached using roof curbs to ensure the safest possible building.
