Common Flat Roof Problems
Flat roofs are a great option for garages and extensions and can have a long life span if looked after properly. If not correctly maintained, they can quickly develop problems that result in costly repair bills and damage to your home.
The first signs that your flat roof needs repairing usually appear in the room directly underneath. Damp patches on the flooring or water dripping from the ceiling are all indications that your roof is in need of repair.
Type of damage and length of time it has been in need of repair is likely to affect the maintenance work required.
1. Tears and splits
Tears and rips in the roofing material can usually be repaired fairly simply with adhesive and bitumen compounds. However, where leaks have been left for some time your roof may be rotten in areas, affecting its structural strength. In these situations it is very important to hire a roofing professional to inspect and repair your roof safely.
When air gets trapped between the layers of felt this can cause a blister. As the trapped air heats and cools the blister which can lead to a puncture. Once this happens the roof is no longer water tight.
The flashings used to seal the area where the flat roof touches the wall can start to leak, causing water damage to the ceilings and walls directly underneath.
