Flat Roofing

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that your home isn’t really complete without a fully functioning roof, this is particularly true if your home happens to be protected by a flat roof. The fact of the matter is that a minor problem in another part of your home may be an annoyance but on your roof, it is something altogether more serious. Whether you consider your flat roof to be the first or last line of defense for your home, the fact remains that even the smallest discrepancy can cause serious problems that may cost thousands and take months to repair. The easiest way of making sure that a small roofing issue doesn’t turn into a major headache is by having it maintained and inspected regularly. If you are looking for a tried and trusted team to carry out this important task then you shouldn’t look past the tried and trusted service offered by Greenlee Roofing.

Common Flat Roof Problems

There is a wide range of factors that explain why your home’s flat roof may experience problems from time to time. In general, these issues often involve pooled water. This is water that puddles on your roof for 48 hours or more, usually after heavy rainfall, and can begin to cause serious problems for your home. Other common causes of leaks include roof drains, skylight, parapets and a range of other penetrations. While less common than the reasons mentioned above, material shortage is another issue that can cause major headaches for your home’s roof. The reason for this that when a rubber membrane shrinks it can pull off parapet walls.

Benefits of Metal Flat Roofs

Metal flat roofs are durable and are a relatively eco-friendly option for homeowners who want a long-lasting material that won’t adversely affect the environment. More recently, metal roofs have started to be replaced by aluminum but metal still remains a reliable choice for homeowners looking for a sturdy and reliable roofing material. If the slope on your roof is 1/12 you can use a metal flat roof.
