Common Flat Roof Problems
Flat roof problems are different from shingle and tile roofs and cannot be seen from the ground. Many problems go undetected until it is too late and a leak has formed. Periodic professional roof inspections are even more important to prevent issues and extend the life of the roof.
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.
