Flat Roof Repairs London – Finding And Fixing Leaks
Flat roof repairs London and beyond can be difficult for a number of reasons. However, one of the main factors is that the visible effects of the leak may not necessarily be at the site of the problem. Water often enters at one point on the roof and travels across and through subsequent levels before becoming visible on your ceiling. One of the most common causes of this type of water leak is known as ponding. Preventing this from occurring on London flat roofing requires regular maintenance and swift action when problems occur.
There are several reasons why pooling of water, or ponding, occurs on a flat roof. It may be because of poor design, lack of a sufficient gradient on the roof, or problems with drainage from the roof. If gutters become clogged, rainwater has nowhere to go and soon becomes standing water. During wet weather, this water accumulates until it forms a pool at the lowest point of the structure. If not dealt with quickly, the damage caused by the standing water can mean that the support structures of the roof are compromised, and instead of a London flat roof repair, you need to have the whole roof replaced.
Other common problems with flat roofs include cracks in the roofing material, missing or rusted roof nails, or simply wear and tear of ageing materials.
