Typical Troubles

Due to the low slope of flat roofing, drainage is a common challenge to the success of flat roofs. Ponding can occur in depressed or uneven areas of your roof, and can often be relieved by raising the affected area or implementing an appropriate drainage system. Leaking may occur when flat roofing becomes saturated or loses its resistance to moisture. Leaks often go undetected for a period of time before they are noticed, allowing the leak to damage the roof, so it is critical to address repairs as soon as possible. Shrinking of flat roofing occurs over time and is common with aged roofing material, but can often be repaired or alleviated with modern techniques and materials.
