flat roof repairs

All flat roofs require regular maintenance and annual inspections, especially if the roof is exposed to severe weather. Irregularities in flashings and waterproofing could result in leaks which are damaging not only to the roof, but also the interior of your home. Flat roofs that are also gardens, balconies or otherwise load-bearing or placed over an extension may need particular attention to ensure the safety of you and your family.

Basic Maintenance

General flat roof maintenance should include removing all stagnant water and puddles. This can be done by installing a roof drain or siphon system. The quicker you get rid of standing water, the less chance there is for a leak to occur. All flat roofs should be inspected semi-annually and after severe weather. Inspections should pay particular attention to flashings, as any sharp bends or joints can open up and may require resealing. Additionally, keeping your flat roof and gutters free of debris will prevent water build up and leaks.

Asphalt Flat Roof Repair

Asphalt, a petroleum by-product, is a popular coating for flat roofs. Asphalt roofs require a fair amount of maintenance, and can be susceptible to weather damage especially after severe storms. Only certified professionals should inspect and repair asphalt roofing. Improper asphalt laying could jeopardise the longevity of your roof. Working with asphalt and required chemicals should only be done by flat roof repair professionals.

Flashing Repair

Flashing is essential for proper drainage on all flat roofs regardless of material. Improper or insufficient flashing and incorrectly sealed joints can result in profound leaks. Caulks or sealant should not be used instead of flashing even though they may be cheaper options, as these alternatives are not hardy enough to withstand exposure to the elements. Paying the price for proper flashing installation and repair could end up saving you money in the long run by preventing the need for costly flat roof replacements.

Metal Flat Roof Repair

Stainless steel, copper, zinc, aluminium and lead sheeting are all highly durable and weather-resistant roofing materials. However, metal flat roofs may still require maintenance and repair. Metal is a good conductor of heat, so flat roof damage may be caused by thermal movement. Metal roof repair often involves leadwork to reseal joints for more durable flashings.

How to Decide Between Repairing and Replacing a Flat Roof

A number of flat roofs can be repaired many times before they will need to be replaced completely. In cases where leaks are still minor or damage is not too severe on a section of flat roofing, repairs can usually be done quickly and affordably. When a roofing expert inspects your flat roof, they will determine which repair methods will be best. One of the most popular options for flat roof repair includes using asphalt to cover the areas that leak or have rusted (in the case of metal roofing). Once asphalt has been applied to leaks or damaged areas, the chances of them leaking again are little to none – for many years to come.

You should be having your flat roof inspected each year, and it’s anticipated that a small repair will be needed with each inspection. However, if you find that you’re calling for repairs several times per year, or that your contractor finds major problems with each inspection, you may want to consider a new flat roof. Repair costs can continue to add up, but when you choose the right new flat roof for your home or business, you can save thousands of pounds over the years by reducing the number of repairs you need.

Average Time Between Flat Roof Repairs

Flat roofs can go a long time between repairs, or they may need to be repaired quite frequently. This depends on many different things like the age of the roof, the material from which it is constructed, and even the quality of the installation or the last repair. On average, homeowners with flat roofs report that they need minor repairs once every five years or so. This number declines significantly for homeowners who have their roofs inspected and maintained by professionals annually.

DIY Dangers

Do not attempt any DIY flat roof repair. Climbing ladders and working with tools or chemicals at high elevations can be extremely dangerous. Should damage to the roof be severe, structural instability could put you at risk of serious injury. Improper flat roof repair could be catastrophic, especially if the roof is load bearing. Specialised architectural knowledge may be required for a proper repair job, so always consult the professionals.

Getting Emergency Flat Roof Repairs

Although many repairs can wait until normal business hours, there are some repairs that must be performed immediately to save the structure of your home or business. When this is the case, remember that not all roofing companies offer after-hours or emergency services. When you fill out the form for a free quote, be sure to mention that you’re looking for emergency repairs. This way, the companies that offer them will contact you with their rates. (Remember that rates are usually higher after hours than they are during regular business hours.) There are local contractors who will come to your home at any time of the day or night, even on weekends or holidays, to repair your roof or at least prevent further damage until the weather permits the proper repairs.

Your flat roofing repair questions answered

This will vary depending on the repairs that need to be done, the age of your roof, and whether the repairs can be affected without having to replace the entire roof. Small repairs can be done in few hours; larger repairs can take 1-2 days.

Not unless the repairs require replacing the entire roof. Most small repairs can be done on top of the existing roofing material, but these should be done by professional roofers to make sure that more damage is not done during the course of the repair.

If you notice water pooling on top of your roof after a heavy rain, this is a telltale sign that repairs are needed. You should also look for signs of peeling, cracking, or bulging on your roof’s surface.

Typically, all forms of flat roofing materials can be repaired – provided that they haven’t been left too long before work is done. However, in cases where large sections of a flat roof have rusted through or are starting to lift, it may be recommended to replace the roofing instead.

Unless you’re a qualified roofing contractor, it is always best to allow a professional to handle your flat roof repair. While you may be able to stop the immediate leak, failing to do so properly can result in an even larger leak – and more expensive damage – down the line.

Most of the contractors in the network are familiar with every type of flat roof material available. However, you should be sure to mention your roofing type in the comments section of your quote for more personalized responses. Some companies may be more well-versed in certain materials than others.

Trained, experienced professionals can safely walk on a flat roof because they can pinpoint beams and joists that will support their weight. Those who are not trained professionals should avoid walking on flat roofs as they may fall through and cause significant damage to both the roof and themselves!

If your flat roof is at the end of its lifespan, if it is in poor condition, or if the repairs are becoming significant, it may be worth your while to consider replacing your roof. Your contractor should be able to provide you with more information to help you make that choice.
