Common Flat Roof Problems and Repairs

This is the most common problem and it occurs when water seeps into the roof. You will notice mold and fungus when this happens. Regular roof inspection and maintenance can prevent the buildup of water on your roof.

This is another problem Manchester homeowners encounter. Splitting can be attributed to harsh weather conditions, water pooling or poor installations. Felt material is often used for flat roofs and the material is quite sensitive. Splits are likely to result in a leak therefore repairs should be conducted swiftly. Splits can be managed using adhesive and roofing cement.

Water pooling is when water sits on your flat roof like a small pond. This is as a result of a flat roof being flat with minimal pitches. Water deteriorates the roof and shortens the life span of the flat roof. Eventually, water will start to seep through the roof causing a leaking. Improving drainage by raising sunken areas creates a slope that allows water to flow into the gutter.

Blistering usually results from excessive heat and a build-up of air trapped in between the felt material of the flat roof. During the summer, the material can start to bubble up due to the warm air pockets. Expansion and contraction of the air can lead to burst or rapture of the felt material. Water ould then seep into the material. Even as the air is building up, it provides an opening for moisture to creep in therefore blisters should be taken care of as soon as possible. A quick fix is cutting the blister open and flattening the material then sticking the piece back on with some adhesive.
