Signs Your Flat Roof Needs Work!

Signs Your Flat Roof Needs Work!

Are you unsure if your flat roof needs a repair or a replacement?
When it comes to your roof, it is important to get work done as soon as possible, this can help to prevent bigger problems from developing.
Here are a few things to look out for when it comes to noticing if your flat roof needs some TLC.

Leaks
Probably the most obvious and noticeable fault with a flat roof would be if it were leaking. This is a clear indication that your flat roof is failing. It is best to get a professional to come out and assess your roof as soon as possible.
By leaving a leak more damage could occur such as dry rot.

Water Pooling
Water pooling or ponding is when water has begun to gather in a pool on a flat roof.
If your roof is regularly pooling this is a sign that it may need replacing as your roof could be taking in water and rotting the decking boards.

Rips, Tears and Cracks
It is important to regularly inspect your roof, if you catch a rip or tear early enough this could potentially save yourself money. Felt roofs may eventually develop tears in the roofing material.
One of the main reasons for roof failure is due to neglecting the initial signs of a problem. Blisters, splits, ridges are all warning signs that the roof is failing. Acknowledging roof problems at an early stage will reduce the ultimate cost of its replacement.
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN A CURE!

Felt roofs do not last forever, telltale signs like ponding water, blisters in the roof coverings can indicate that the roof is in need of replacement before the total failure of the roof occurs.
