Common Flat Roof Problems
Ponding water is the main cause of roof deterioration on flat roofs. Water breaks down the membrane and causes leaks. To solve this problem a tapered insulation system can be installed which will shed the water off your roof and as a bonus reduce your energy bills.
Cracked Membrane/ Alligatoring
These low slope/flat roofs have been coated, probably to try and fix existing leaks. Water, debris and the sun breaks down the coating and roofing membrane providing only a temporary solution.
