There are some common signs to look for if you may require flat roofing repair or replacement. These may not always be obvious at first, so inspecting your existing flat roof now and again is certainly a worthwhile task.
Puddles forming – If water is collected in puddles after a spout of rain it is a clear sign that your flat roof is beginning to sag. This can be caused by cracks that have formed or by a poorly installed flat roof.
Leaks – This is an obvious sign that something is wrong. If you see pools of water on the inside of your flat roof building it is a sure sign of a leak. Getting your roof repaired as quickly as possible is non-negotiable. Leaving a leak too long can mean a repair will not be sufficient and a full replacement may be needed.
Moss or other growths – If you see moss on your flat roof you may think it is harmless. But, moss can cause substantial damage. Seeing moss could also be caused by a non-visible area where water retention cannot be seen.
There are other signs over and above this which could mean your flat roof needs repair. As a flat roofing contractor do not hesitate to contact us should you want a second opinion.
