Ponding Water On The Roof
Most flat roofs suffer from some sort of water ponding due to the nature of which these were traditionally constructed. Ponding water can lead to flat roof damage and also cause problems such as flat roof leaks, both things that you will be keen not to happen to your flat roof. Trying to eliminate ponding water is not a straight forward job most of the time and the roof structure itself may need to be adjusted to a slight pitch. Flat roofs can be adjusted to a pitch even if the surface is to be used for foot traffic if a company like ours is used as we know how to get around these flat roofing issues.

Shrinking Flat Roof
Flat roofs that are made from fibreglass are much more likely to shrink over time than the likes of a rubber of traditional bitumen felt flat roof. This shrinkage means that the seams on the roof will pull apart and this makes leak points. Shrinkage is a natural occurrence of flat roofs and the only way to keep on top of this is is to make regular repairs or completely renew your roof. Renewal of your roof sooner rather than later can also save you money in the long run as if caught before roof leaks happen you can get away with using the same roof decking and simply refelting or rubberising your flat roof with just the protective water proof layer.
This particular problem is caused by a flat roof that is deteriorating. Over time the membrane on the roof will start to bubble and becomes much like skin of an alligator. If this happens then the roof will need to be replaced with a new roof installation.
Whether you have flat roofing, or sloped roofing, it is important that you take good care of it. Failing to do this will mean that you are likely to be faced with some costly roof repairs or need an entire roof replacement. This isn’t likely to be something that you can do yourself, instead, it is recommended that you seek out a professional roofing company who will be able to service and maintain your roof for you.
