How can I avoid leaks on my building?
All our buildings are leak-proof. However, when it comes to 31’ buildings and longer, we strongly recommend our A-Frame Vertical roof which can prevent future leaks in the long term. Another way to avoid leaks coming from the base rail is by making the concrete slab the same size as the base. In this case, we will have to include “L-Brackets”.
