Flat Roof Problems
Potential problems with flat roofs are many, but some are more common than others. Routine maintenance and inspections are important for any roof but especially for a flat roof.
Flat roof leaks can cause thousands of dollars of damage to the building and the equipment or inventory inside.
If you suspect that you may have a roof leak, call 918 Construction for a FREE roof inspection.
Ponding or Pooling Water
Ponding water occurs when the roof has low spots that are not properly sloped for water to flow toward drains or gutters.
This can happen due to improper support or design under membranes or other roofing materials. It can also happen when drains are clogged.
Ponding water is the enemy of your flat roof. Ideally, you want to remove any ponding water within 48 hours.
Pooling water can lead to delamination of membrane or insulation materials or blisters that hold moisture under the membrane. It can cause other roofing materials to break down exponentially faster than normal.
Ultimately, left unchecked, pooling water will eventually lead to a roof leak on your flat roof.
Clogged Roof Drains
Flat roof systems rely on free flowing roof drains to carry water away from the roof.
When drains become clogged with leaves, sticks, construction debris or gravel, water can begin to pond quickly.
And the water can get very deep. This puts pressure on all areas around the drain and can allow water to seep into the smallest of holes.
Additionally, any standing water that remains into wintertime will freeze, causing more damage to roof materials, drains and decking.
Flat roofs often hold equipment like HVAC units, air filtration, exhaust vents and other machinery that requires maintenance.
Foot traffic and dropped tools can cause punctures that eventually leak.
Also, if you have installed any subsequent vent pipes or other equipment that required a penetration through your existing roof, it’s important to contact a professional roofing company to ensure these areas are flashed and sealed properly to prevent leaks.
Flat Roof Maintenance
General maintenance for your flat roof will keep it healthy and performing for years.
Flat roof maintenance includes routine inspections either annual or semi-annual by a qualified roofing professional, along with post-storm damage inspections as needed.
During inspections, areas of concern can be identified and dealt with immediately.
Rather than waiting months or years for problems to accumulate.
Flat Roof Construction
When your roof is simply worn out, your roofer will advise you on optional courses of action.
Some flat roofs can be repaired with roof coatings or replacement of membranes.
Other more serious roof problems may require a complete rebuilding including insulation, decking, membranes, metal or other roofing systems.
