Flat roofing systems are required when the roof slope is insufficient to allow the rain to run off the roof quickly. However, leaking and even total collapse can happen if flat roof problems are not fixed in a timely manner. This can lead to very costly repairs and collateral damage to the building interior.
What causes flat roofs to leak or become structurally compromised? Separated seams, insufficient flashing around roof penetrations, and deteriorating sheathing, joists and insulation are a few causes. This usually creates sagging spots in your flat roof and enables water to gather, adding a lot of weight to your roof. Most of the time these issues can be repaired before they become serious and costly. If the damage is neglected or too extensive, complete replacement may be necessary.
