Can a Flat Roof be Patched?

Flat Roof Repair

Damage on Your Flat Roof Can Leave Your Commercial Property Open to Further Damage.

Have you noticed damage or wear on your commercial flat roof system? As a business owner, finding damage can be very stressful. While you don’t want repairs and replacement to inhibit your business day and potential customers, you also may be concerned over whether it can be patched or if a full replacement is necessary. The good news is that flat roofing systems can be patched and may only need replacement if the damage is too severe. Our roofing contractors work with your schedule to help you get the service you need for your flat roof while not impeding upon your day.  Flat roof repair can be completed to handle many kinds of damage such as:

  • Leaking and puddling
  • Buckling and bubbling material
  • Cracks in roofing
  • Damaged flashing

What Type of Materials are Used on Flat Roofs?

Do you know what sort of materials your flat roofing system is constructed of? Knowing this can help you keep a better eye out for any possible damage and act quickly in the event the system has been worn down. When first installed, it could have been made of Built Up Roofing, Modified Bitumen, PVC, TPO, or EPDM. Each of these has a variety of benefits they offer such as durability, energy efficiency and more. However, they all offer excellent protection for your commercial property. Research the particular areas of concern for your roofing material such as weakened seams, wear, or alligatoring, and keep an eye out for these issues. It is also important to know the general causes of concern for flat roofs, such as puddling, water damage, and drainage issues. Puddling can be caused by rain and water collecting on your roof, or even your HVAC system. HVAC systems, such as Lennox brand air conditioners, are commonly placed on top of commercial flat roofing systems allowing for condensation of water to puddle. If you notice any of these issues, contact your local roofer immediately.
