A deep dive into roofing equipment care

Leister Deep Dive into Roofing Equipment
March 10, 2024 at 6:00 p.m.

By Jonny Suchor.  

Nurturing and maintaining your equipment is not just a necessity; it will ensure a legacy of quality work and safety.  

On a recent Roofing Road Trips® podcast episode, Heidi J. Ellsworth sat down with Dave Nordentoft, Leister's product manager, to explore the topic of equipment maintenance.   

Dave has been in the roofing industry for nearly 36 years and is very passionate about working with roofers and contractors. Leister is a leader in heat welding in the roofing industry, and Dave shares his expertise about practical tips for preserving the condition of your welding equipment. 

Regular checks and maintenance are essential for ensuring user safety and the prolonged performance of your welding equipment. Taking the time to inspect and clean your tools is a commitment to top-notch work quality and a strategy to enhance efficiency. “The old saying is you take care of your tools and equipment, and the equipment will take care of you,” Dave explains. “And that’s not just Leister heat welding equipment. It’s really any tool or equipment that helps you be productive and helps your company make money.” 

Equipment maintenance is necessary. Overlooking it can take away your full potential as a worker, whether putting yourself at risk for harm or producing a lower-quality job. Dave emphasizes that airflow is one of the most important things to check in tools contractors regularly use. “How that air flows through there dictates to a certain degree how that tool will perform, and things happen on job sites. Job sites are dirty, so there are different things like dust and dirt, particulate matter that'll get drawn into these tools. So, it's not a bad idea to stop and take a break to check the filters and intake filters and ensure they are clean,” says Dave. 

Making sure your equipment is working correctly ensures safety as well. “I think it's just good practice to make sure that the equipment's operating safely,” Dave states. “You want to keep your workers safe, and again, in the end, if you do that, you take care of your workers, and you take care of the equipment, and then everything's going to add up to a better-quality job, a better run job site.”
