Flat Roof Leaks
If you have a flat roof and it becomes damaged by a storm or any other means, it’s a matter that will demand your immediate attention. That’s because if repair work isn’t carried out urgently, it can lead to more and more damage. When water gets where it shouldn’t be, it can significantly impact the structural integrity.
Water can be very unforgiving and when certain areas within the structure of your home start to collect water, it can cause considerable damage. Saturated brickwork can cause internal damp issues and structural timbers can become weakened, so when you get a flat roof with a leak, time really is of the essence.
Pooling/Ponding on Flat Roof
The design of some flat roofs means that damage and leaks don’t necessarily have to be caused by something hitting it or from strong winds. That’s because ‘pooling’ a.k.a. ‘ponding’ can occur when the roof doesn’t allow rainwater to drain as it should do.
The sheer weight of water can place excessive amounts of stress on the seals and joints in your flat roof and over time, this slowly, over time causes the integrity of your roof to weaken and eventually fail. The larger the pooling area, the bigger the issue and when your roof finally leaks, it can become a major issue, fast.
