Rooftop Anchor Installation Services in Lombard, IL
Commercial Roof Anchor Installation
We follow all OSHA requirements.
Especially for taller buildings, the need for roof anchors to be installed is growing. This equipment is commonly used in fall protections in order to hold lifelines and ropes to prevent window washers, roofers, and other workers from falling. In order to work effectively, these roof safety anchors must be installed strategically at the proper points as well as within OSHA regulations.
In fact, OSHA has recently dropped a new rule within roof installation, maintenance, and capability requirements that all building owners must meet.

Roof Requirements Set by OSHA
Roofers, window washers, and other contractors depend on an established fall protection system when conducting any type of building service. The requirement for building owners to have these systems installed is to ensure their protection, and this includes the requirement to have roof anchors installed properly. OSHA specifically states under rule 1910.27(b) that “the owner of a building is responsible for installing roof anchors that can support at least 5,000 lbs. These anchors must also undergo annual inspections.
If your building needs maintenance that requires roof anchors, they will require written proof of all of the following:
- They can support at least 5,000 pounds
It is also the responsibility of the service provider to disallow workers from conducting any work until receiving proof that all of the above requirements are met.
Rooftop Anchor Installation Services
With our experience and training, our Reliable Roofing technicians can install rooftop anchors on buildings of all sizes and types of roofing that also meet OSHA’s regulations.
Our services cover all of the following:
- The proper location for the anchor is determined and cut out to fit the anchor.
- The membrane and insulation are removed while holes are drilled into the concrete deck for the bolts to hold the anchor down.
- The anchor is fitted in the space and bolted down using concrete bolts and epoxy.
- Insulation is then installed around the roof anchor and covered with roof membrane to even it out with the rest of the roof.
- The top sheet of the membrane is then laid and torched over the base sheet and sealed with caulk to form a water tight seal.
- A curb filled with epoxy is poured around the roof anchor to form a watertight, permanent flashing.
Roof anchors are an essential part of all commercial buildings in order to perform any service.
