What are some of the aspects that go into flat roof repair or flat roof maintenance? This blog from Summit Commercial Roofing will address some of those issues, for businesses to decide whether they should contract us to ensure proper upkeep and health of their roofs.
Flat roofs obviously last longer if they are properly and regularly maintained. There are a few common factors that tend to really mess up a flat roof if they are not addressed. The first of that is ponding, when water is caught up in little pools on the roof top. This is because the drain system or slope of the roof wasn’t done efficiently enough. If ponding is allowed to continue, you’ll end up with a weakened roof and possible leaks that will worsen over time.
Another factor is that of the protective and waterproof coating or covering that stretches over the flat roof. This is put in place initially, but sometimes roofers are not careful in how they install the covering. They may accidentally or carelessly tear the material and render it ineffective in doing its job. Weather becomes a problem when the covering is not on properly, because rain fall will be detrimental to your flat roof, and snow even more of an issue. Flat roof repair is not a very difficult situation if you have experienced roofers. Summit Commercial Roofing has experts specifically for flat roofs, because that’s all we do.
