Flat roofing is sometimes known as being leaky and inadequate which isn’t entirely fair. That being said, older flat roofing and roofing that hasn’t been installed properly in the first place can certainly be prone to leaking and might be far less effective than new, modern roofing. If a flat roof needs to be repaired then repairing it effectively can help to extend its lifespan by many years.
A professional roofing contractor will be the best person to fix a flat roof, especially if it is a problematic one. They will have:
- Lots of experience of flat roofing
- A good understanding of what can cause problems with flat roofing, especially if it is older and more damaged
- Products and materials to repair all types of flat roof, though different contractors may specialise in different kinds of roofing.
Find a contractor with good knowledge and skill, and your roof could last you for many more years to come.
