What Causes Flat Roofs to Leak?
The following are the most common causes of flat roofing leaks:
Bad design – There isn’t enough of a fall on the roof, and there aren’t enough outlets for water to flow off the roof.
Poor workmanship – The roof covering was not placed according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Settlement – Water collects on the roof because the timbers that support it have slumped, allowing water to the pond.
Lack of upkeep – Solar-reflective stones or paint were not placed on a regular basis to keep the surface from blistering and breaking.
Puncturing – When people stroll and work on the roof without taking precautions.
Poorly installed flashings — flashings that are not properly dressed to the surrounding walls, or inappropriate usage of flashing materials, such as lead.
When performing flat roof repairs, we discuss with the customer extensively the roof’s condition. Sometimes the flat roof has deteriorated to the point where a repair isn’t possible.
Repairing a Flat Roof
It’s common, but not necessary, to repair a leaky flat roof with the same materials that were used originally. However, if your flat roof is an old lead or zinc roof that isn’t visible from the house, repairing it with the same materials is a waste of money. Normally, we would patch the leak with a torch on felt or liquid rubber in this scenario. Both of these items will last 10 to 20 years, and if you have an old flat roof, they will likely outlast the roof.
