Taking Care of Your Flat Roof

Although most homes in the UK are not built with a flat roof, there are many buildings that have them. They can often be found on commercial buildings, as well as residential home extensions and garages. If you have a flat roof on your property, you might be wondering about taking care of it and also knowing when it needs to be replaced or repaired.

Because flat roofs do not have a steep slope like a pitched roof does, they cannot support the same materials to waterproof them, such as tiles, as these would be too heavy for the roof to support. Because of this, as well as the lack of slope, over time this can make them much more susceptible to pooling water, which damages the roof.

If you have any problems with a flat roof, or suspect that you do, get a professional roofer like this flat roofing Cheltenham based company who have experience of dealing with flat roofs. They will be able to take a look at it and let you know if it needs to be repaired or replaced – or if there is nothing wrong with it!

Things to look for include water pooling on the roof, cracks in the roof and leaks coming through the roof. It is also a good idea to get an older flat roof checked regularly, as they are much more likely to have problems as they get older, so it is better to keep an eye on it.
