Signs That your Flat Roof Needs Repair Services
Understanding the signs that your flat roof needs repair services can save you a great deal of money. Not only can a damaged roof cause structural damage, but it can cause additional problems if not repaired in a timely manner. For that reason, it is important to keep an eye out for signs that your flat roof is leaking or damaged.
As mentioned earlier, roof leaks are a common problem with a flat roof. Because the roof is flat, it can be hard to pinpoint the source of the leak. Additionally, leaks that are not repaired quickly can damage not only the roof, but also the ventilation and ac systems..
Ponding of Water
Unattended ponding of water can result in problems. Not only can it break down the roofing material, but it can also cause leaks.
Most roofs in Florida take a beating from the sun. In fact, the sun can cause warping and cracking. In other words, excessive heat can cause cracks, allowing rain to penetrate the surface. Which can lead to mold growth, leaks, stains, and electrical hazards..
In Florida, hurricanes and tropical storms are a threat and damage roofs. However, strong summer thunderstorms can also damage flat roofs. If your flat roof has been damaged in a storm, you need to have it inspected and repaired as soon as possible.
Types of Flat Roofing
There are basically 3 types of flat roofing and Bringman Roofing can help you make the right choice based on your specific needs.
TPO Membrane or Single-Ply
This is one of the most popular flat roofing options. In short, TPO roofs offer a longer life expectancy than other flat roofs. This type of flat roof consists of a single ply of rubber or plastic. Both of which are durable. In fact, the seams of the material are heat welded together. As a result, a watertight, energy-efficient bond is formed. Not only do TPO roofs come in a variety of colors, but they are also reflective. In other words, heat is repelled, saving money on energy costs.
Built-up Roofing (BUR)
Another flat roofing option is built-up roofing. This type of roofing has many layers. The bottom layer consists of one or more layers of insulation board. In short, the bottom layer helps support the remaining layers. Multiple layers of tar or asphalt are then placed on the insulation board, alternating with layers of roofing felt. These layers are then topped off with a layer of gravel. The result is a thick, strong roof that is ideal for commercial usage but rarely used in residential construction.
Modified Bitumen Roofing
Installing a modified bitumen roof comes without a lot of the mess associated with installing built-up roofing. These roofs consist of a flexible asphalt like material with a mineral top coating. The top coating is rolled into sheets from 3 feet wide up to 36 feet in length. Then installed over a base sheet membrane material that provides insulation and helps prevent leakage.
Flat Roof Maintenance
All roofing types need periodic upkeep and inspections to ensure they remain in optimal condition. However, flat roofs require more maintenance than sloped roofs. This is due to the collection of debris and pooling water. Although, sticking to a regular maintenance schedule will help. Not only will you prevent problems from occurring, but you will also be able to identify issues that need addressing. Additionally, early detection of problems will save you time and money. In short, pay attention to the following:
Inspect your Roof Regularly
If you find loose seams, rust, blisters, water pooling, or cracks, contact Bringman Roofing.
Have a Professional Inspection Once a Year
Have your roof inspected by a licensed roofing contractor at least once a year.
If your roof is damaged or leaking, fix it promptly. After all, prompt roof repair will make sure the problem is fixed before it turns into a disaster.
Make sure your Roof is Free of Debris
Not only can debris cause mold growth, but it can also compromise your roof integrity. For example, leave and twigs left on a flat roof can lead to moisture retention. Which can lead to mold, leaks, and more.
Trim Back Trees
As stated above, you want to keep your roof free from debris. Trimming back trees will help.
Keep your Gutters Clean
Maintaining your gutters will help prevent water from pooling.
