How Do I Know If My Flat Roof Needs Repairs?
The biggest potential issue with any roof is a water leak. Leaks can happen during heavy rain or in the spring during the snowmelt. Roof leaks happen when water breaks through the protective membrane. The biggest concern is that roof leaks often occur slowly. The water penetrates the roofing but accumulates slowly within the building structure. Sometimes it takes extended periods for water damage to show itself, and at this point, the repair costs can be astronomical. MD Roofing recommends regular, thorough inspections of your commercial flat roof. The cost of routine inspections is a fraction of the potential damage if you suffer a leak.
Below are some common causes of flat roof damage:
- Long-term exposure to the elements (sunlight, water, wind, other elements) can cause severe damages.
- Unexpected plant growth (moss or algae) from standing water can also cause damage to the protective membrane.
- Excess standing water caused by improper drainage can damage the roofing layer as well as the structure below it due to excess weight from the water.
Putting off regular inspections or roof repair will cost you more in the long-term. We highly recommend having a reliable roofing contractor inspect your flat roof regularly. We also recommend that property owners perform regular visual inspections on their roof. Here are some tell-tale signs that your flat roof may require us to come and inspect it:
- Deteriorating or damaged flashing
- Lack of ventilation
- Roof rot
- Growing moss or mould
- Ponding (standing or pooling water)
- Open membrane seams
- Empty pitch pockets
- Membrane tears and holes
