Signs Your Flat Roof May Be Leaking And In Need Of Repair?

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.

How Often Does A Flat Roof Need Replacing?

A flat roof should last for a minimum of 10 years when installed correctly. Keeping the roof well maintained will certainly extend this lifespan also. Some materials last longer than others so speak with our flat roof specialists and discuss the options. Although we confidently offer durable flat roofing that can last for decades, we know that sometimes you’ll still need to call a repair expert for an issue with an existing flat roof.

What Is The Longest-Lasting Flat Roof Material?

Despite all flat roofing materials have an excellent lifespan considering the constant changing of the weather and temperatures, EPDM rubber roofs, if well maintained, can last for an impressive 50 years. It is also a very versatile roofing material and can be used on a variety of different roof types from dormers to conservatories.

How Much Does A Flat Roof Cost?

Unfortunately, this isn’t a straightforward answer as roofs come in all different shapes, sizes, and materials on offer. Despite this, as a rough estimate, a flat roof will cost around £1000 to £1200 on average.

For repairs, pricing will be based upon what section of the flat roof will need repair. This is whether we need to replace the top layer, repair the edgings, or do something more extensive, like needing to get access to the base layer.
