Flat Roof Maintenance Guide
When picking the right flat roofing, there are a number of considerations you need to factor in. This may include the size of your flat roof, the type of weather it’s likely to be up against and the amount of labour it will require. With this in mind, here we outline some flat roof maintenance pointers.
If you want to repair any damages on your flat roof or have them repaired on your behalf, you need to examine the damage prior to fixing any potential leaks. You might have noticed your ceiling is sagging or drooping and this is a clear sign of damages. The best course of action to take is often to call in a professional roofing company rather than risk your own safety.
Splitting is common for flat roofs. This can happen when the felt or asphalt material covering the roof experiences cracks or tears. This will not just impact the outer appearance of the roof, but it can also mean that water can get in through the gaps and into the interior of your home, leading to leaks and damage from damp which can be tricky to fix.
Ponding is frequently triggered by compromised drainage, so, if you have noticed the beginnings of ponding on your flat roof, see that your drains and guttering are clear of any leaves, sticks or other debris that could be obstructing it up and preventing the water from running clearly.
