Common Flat Roof Issues
Flat roofs can present a range of problems especially if they are not properly maintained. Rainwater outlets becoming blocked is one of the issues that can occur with many properties. As a result, this leads to improper drainage. To compound the problem, this can cause water damage to both the exterior and interior of the property.
When water doesn’t drain properly, you can end up with pools of water on your roof. You might see moss, lichen and other vegetation. Additionally, you can see cracks or stretching at the joints and corners. Having flat roofs regularly inspected is important. The good news is you can make some improvements to help prevent damage.
