WHAT CAN HAPPEN TO YOUR FLAT ROOF?
If you have a commercial building or a home with a flat roof, you understand that it often requires more maintenance than other standard roofing types. Unfortunately, there are times when your flat roof may suffer damage, whether it’s accidental or of natural causes, which requires urgent flat roof repair for the safety of the structure and everyone inside. The difficulty of a flat roof is realizing when you need to have it replaced, or if you simply need a flat roof repair. We have compiled a list of the top 6 most common problems that can arise with a flat roof and the best ways to deal with them depending on the severity.
Leaks and Moisture
Probably the most common problem with a flat roof is leaking and lingering moisture. But these are issues that can be dealt with effectively if you stay on top of them with the proper flat roof maintenance. Just like any roof, a flat roof can develop leaks, but because it is flat, the water doesn’t have anywhere else to go but straight down. This means that moisture can seep into the roof, causing issues that could form mold and fungus. The best way to deal with this kind of roof repair is to make sure you have a roof inspected regularly. You should also schedule your flat roof maintenance whenever you see an issue.
Like most other roofing materials, a flat asphalt roof tends to expand and contract with changing weather patterns and temperatures. Over time, this continued expansion and contraction can cause the flashing to pull away from the edges and corners of your roof, leading to leaks and moisture that can become trapped inside your roof. The best way to avoid this is to schedule an inspection and flat roof maintenance regularly. If the leak becomes more significant, or if the flashing deteriorates further, you could be forced into a flat roof replacement.
When it rains or snows on a flat roof, there is nowhere for that water to go. As your building structure settles over time, the roof itself will also shift, so it may remain as level as it was when it was first installed. This can cause water to pool in the dips on your flat roof. While most roofing materials are designed to handle water, it is essential to drain these pools as soon as possible and ensure that water has not seeped into the lower layers of the roof. If pooling lingers, it’s likely to cause the exterior of your roof to deteriorate, shortening the life of your flat roof. This makes flat roof maintenance so imperative.
Buckle in the Membrane
Most flat asphalt roofing is constructed similarly to shingle roofing. They are both made up of a membrane soaked in asphalt and then installed across the top of the building to secure the roof. Unlike shingle roofing, however, the membrane on a flat roof is all one large piece. As your home or business building shifts as it settles over time, your roof will move right along with it. But excessive movement can cause buckles in the asphalt membrane, signaling the need for a flat roof replacement. A buckling flat roof is not safe for anyone and can lead to major problems down the line, so a flat roof replacement is highly recommended.
Cracks in the Roof
A flat roof tends to have more pressure exerted on it than a sloped roof due to the configuration of the roof itself. Sometimes this pressure can build and become too excessive, leading to stresses that can cause cracks to form. If your roof does crack, call us immediately. In addition to exposing your home or business to water penetration, a crack is often an indicator that your roof is structurally compromised. In that case, you may need a flat roof replacement.
One of the most obvious signs that flat roof replacement is needed is a phenomenon called alligatoring. The asphalt used to construct your flat roof loses its elasticity as a result of age, causing it to crack, & bubble. The appearance is similar to the skin of an alligator, hence the name of the damage. Unfortunately, it means that your asphalt has deteriorated past the point of reparation, and you will need a flat roof replacement.
