Remember Rooflight edges

Posted on by David Burley

A recent habitation service we performed highlights reasons why a clean van roof is a must.

This customer had omitted to raise their rooflight and clean under the edge of the plastic window section (the remainder of the roof was clean).

Oover time dust and moisture had accumulated enough to provide a nice base for plant seeds to grow in and over more time this would have had the potential to cause a seal breakdown and eventual damp ingress (on a 3 yr old van)
