Flat roofs are common on commercial buildings and while durable they can still be susceptible to leaks. Flat roof repair aids in water damage prevention. Roof coatings, roof painting and roof repair are a few ways to protect your roof.
What Causes Flat Roofs to Leak?
Older roofs are more likely to leak, particularly if there are areas of deterioration. Often, leaks occur around plumbing stacks, vents and at the edge of the roof. If there is ponding water on the roof, it can also lead to damage. Certain roof coatings and paints can help eliminate ponding, leaking and even decay.
If you have pipes, gas lines, plumbing or any other structures that exit the roof’s surface, the roof may be more vulnerable to leaks.
How Can You Repair a Flat Roof?
Commercial flat roof repair involves an inspection of the roof to determine the problem. As long as action is taken quickly to repair the roof, the building is less likely to suffer from serious structural damage caused by water damage. The repair methods depend on the type of roof and membrane.
