Flat roofs have two exceptional qualities, their value and their renowned durability. Whether you have the good old traditional system of bituminous felt that’s been around since the 1940s or the latest in single ply PVC technology, we can help get in back in tip top shape in no time.
Commercial Roof Maintenance
Some roof’s are incredibly simple to maintain requiring little more than a glance over maybe in March and November, just to make sure everything is still in good order. Yet even the most eagle-eyed caretaker may not be able to identify the subtle tell-tale signs of the early stages of blistering or the tiny cracks or tears that you can be sure will eventually turn into something much bigger and costlier.
It may be that rain has got into the stubborn habit of not draining away as the roof design originally intended. This pooling is caused if the covering membrane has started to sag a little between the joists of the roof deck. Again this is not an easy complication to spot as you need to check the roof every two days to see if water has decided to form its own little boating pond. If precipitation persists day in, day out, it’s going to be impossible to recognize anyway.
Oh No Damp
Usually the first sign that your roof is not as watertight as it once was are ugly damp spots developing on the ceiling. You might try to convince yourself that it’s just a trick of the light, but ignore these symptoms at your peril as you already have a leak somewhere.
Get The Bucket
And if it’s not attended to, you’ll soon be flinging open every cupboard in search of pots and pans to contain the inevitable drips. These will then decide to get quicker and quicker until the ceiling itself gives up the will to live with inevitable consequences. Early leak detection is therefore vital if you want to keep maintenance costs low and avoid expensive repairs and unnecessarily extensive remedial work later.
