Maintaining and Repairing Flat Roofs
Our roofer Dublin experts work with home and business owners throughout Dublin. They know that the quality of flat roofs, as well as the lifespan, comes down to two things: The quality of the materials used in the construction phase and the maintenance carried out over the years. In order for any roof to last, it will need regular maintenance and this is something that should not be overlooked.
Flat roofs that have been constructed from felt can face problems such as blistering, ponding, and splitting especially after extreme or harsh weather. Roofing Experts uses HSA approved roofing materials to ensure that we provide you with the highest quality material. We also carry out flat roof repairs and replacements. If you have any issues you can contact us for advice and help.
Splitting problems with flat roofs can be caused by a number of things. Stress and pressure are one of the causes but during winter and cold weather freezing and thawing can also cause splitting. It is essential that your flat roof is maintained properly during winter and during any cold weather spells where freezing temperatures occur.
Another common issue with flat roofs in Dublin is pooling. When it rains, which is quite often in Ireland, pools of rainwater can sit in the concave areas of your flat roof. If these go untreated or ignored, the pools can end up damaging your roof. To prevent this from happening our Dublin roofers can install what are called hoppers. Hoppers collect excess water and remove it from your roof. They are a square funnel type box that guides the excess water into your drainpipe. We can also discuss more effective guttering for your flat roof as well.
Regular maintenance is essential if you have a flat roof and it also helps to prevent damage from pooling and splitting. Having a maintenance schedule in place and getting your roof checked at least once a year is highly recommended.
One of the main tips we give to flat roof homeowners is that they check their flat roof regularly. This helps to spot any problems before they turn serious and also allows them to be fixed early. This saves on experience roof repairs too. Whether it’s removing dirt and debris from your flat roof, fixing splitting issues, or repairing pooling problems, Roofing Experts can help.
