When to Repair a Flat Roof
If your flat roof is leaking, chances are at a minimum that it needs to be repaired. With a FREE roof inspection, we will be able to identify what is causing your flat roof to leak and whether it needs to be repaired or replaced.
Depending upon the type of flat roof installed, the life expectancy ranges from 5 to 50 years. For instance:
- TPO roofs are designed to last 15 to 20 years.
- PVC roofing, which is the longest lasting single ply membrane, offers a 25 to 35-year life span.
- Modified Bitumen only lasts 10 to 15 years;
- EPDM Rubber is designed to last 50 years but with harsh weather conditions may only last 10-12 at best. And,
- Rolled Asphalt which is almost never used today only lasts 5 to 7 years.
So, depending upon the type of roofing you have and when it was installed, you might just need a repair to your flat roof, or, you may need to replace it.
When to Replace a Flat Roof
Replacing your flat roof can be expensive that’s why maintaining your flat roof is a must. If your roof is old or was not installed properly and is causing moisture issues, a new roof may be warranted. Failing to replace a faulty roof in a timely manner can cause larger more extensive damage. Again, a FREE roof inspection can help you to mitigate potential problems before they become expensive.
Flat Roof Inspections
Because flat roofs are flat, meaning they have very little slope, pooling water, snow and ice can accumulate. Because of this, it is important to inspect your flat roof periodically. When snow and ice accumulate and add excessive weight accumulations to your flat roof, structural damage can occur. We recommend yearly inspections of your flat roof. We specifically look for structural integrity issues such as wood rot and soft spots. We’ll examine the flashings, seams, attachment points and check for cracks at corners and joints. If your roofer is older, it may have drainage holes. We inspect those also to ensure water can runoff from the building. With our flat roof inspections, we assess all damage looking for punctures, aging, ponding water, leakage and any signs of stress.
