Frequently Asked Flat Roof Repair Questions
Even though flat roof materials have improved over the years, they tend to still have a lifespan and will succumb to leaks, especially if they have not been maintained. Over the years, sun, wind, rain, and snow will break down the roofing material that protects your flat roof from leaks. Below are some common ways to tell that you need flat roof repairs:
- Repeated or extensive water pooling on the roof
- Blistering and bubbling from adhesion failure
- Tears, cracks or rips in the roof or seams
- The presence of leaks or moisture inside the building
- The pulling away of flashing from the corners of the roof
- The growth of lichen, moss, mould, and algae
- Damaged topcoat
If you notice or are experiencing any of the above, it’s best to call the flat roof specialists at ER now on 01206 209326.
There are several reasons why you may have a leaking flat roof in Colchester, some of the common ones include:
- Inadequate drainage: if your roof doesn’t have proper drainage, water will pool on the roof. Over time, standing water can damage roofing materials and make the roof susceptible to leaks.
- An old roof: older roofs are more prone to roof leaks due to years of rain, sun, frost, hail, and snow eventually damaging the roofing material.
- Damaged flashing: poorly installed or damaged flashing can leave the roof exposed to the elements, allowing water to penetrate the roofing system.
- Damage to the roof membrane: tears, cracks, punctures and blistering of the roof membrane will leave the roof deck and interior of the roof vulnerable to water damage and leaks.
- Standing water: standing water can cause strain, wear, and tear on your flat roof. If left it will weaken the roof to the point where it will start to leak.
On commercial flat roofs, holes will be made in the roof membrane to accommodate vents, drains, pipes, and HVAC units. Over the years the seals on these gaps will no longer be watertight, allowing water to seep into the membrane and causing leaks.
On average, a flat roof repair cost in Colchester will run between £300 to £600 depending on the roof material and the extend of the damage. If your garage flat roof just needs a small patch, then you are looking to the lower end of the scale. If your flat roof is in constant need of repair, it would make sense to replace the roof.
A GRP flat roof, or fibreglass roofing as it’s also known, is one of the most popular flat roofing solutions in the UK. GRP stands for Glass Reinforced Polyester, a composite material formed by strengthening plastic with fine fibres made of glass.
GRB/Fibreglass is a newer roofing system that lends itself best to flat roofing but is also suitable for pitched roofs in some applications. Fibreglass is more durable than felt and stronger too. A fibreglass roof will last for more than 20 years and it’s less likely than felt to develop a fault.
