Flat Roof Repairs

Call us on 01223 650685

Cambridge Flat Roofing are happy to work on your flat roof repairs.

Discovering the source of a leak in a flat roof is usually easier than finding one on a sloping roof. Having said that, roof leaks of any kind can be more complicated than they initially seem – especially if you’re thinking of fixing it yourself.

There are many reasons for this, starting with the fact that the spot where you initially notice water entering your interior rooms might not actually be where the leak itself is, since water that penetrates the membrane of your roof can travel across the roof until it reaches a seam in the sheathing/roof deck, skylight or electrical, air-conditioning or plumbing penetration and then manages to drip or seep through to the inside.

If you have any doubts regarding your capabilities, we suggest you contact us and we can help you protect your investment.

Things like a leaky seam, holes or rips caused by a fallen tree branch or similar debris, accidental punctures, or other issues with your PVC roof call us as we're a specialist equipped with all the necessary tools and supplies.

What To Do

If you detect that your flat roof has been damaged as a result of water entering your property, it's critical to get the problem properly examined and repaired as soon as feasible.

Repairs to your roof will be more expensive if they aren't done quickly. Water-caused damage can rapidly rise when repairs are not made promptly. If structural timbers are kept soaked for a long period of time, they may become weakened. Saturated brickwork and masonry might lead to dampness within the structure, which might necessitate extensive interior decorating work.

When it comes to maintenance, you can expect your flat roofer in Cambridge to do a thorough examination of your flat roof. If required, they will try to prevent additional damage from occurring before proceeding with their repairs.

Repairs We Make to Flat Roofs

  • Patching and resealing roof covering seams are all possible.
  • Repairs to or replace missing or ineffective flashings
  • Repointing bricks in an old house with crumbling mortar
  • Removing and replacing damaged masonry bricks
  • Repairs to guttering ensuring maximum drainage
  • Skylight seal replacement.

On a flat roof, the most common weak areas are at the edges and along with the abutment locations. Roof coverings that haven't been taken into account for structural movement can cause leaks as well as defective flashings and pointing.

Roof damage occasionally requires a complete replacement. If this is the case, we'll give you an in-depth analysis of the problems and a firm quotation to have the job done.
