Unique Challenges of Flat Roofs
Flat roofs can add character and visual appeal to many homes but present some unique challenges. Unlike traditional pitched roofs, flat roofs have little to no slope, meaning water from rain and snow doesn’t quickly drain away. Instead, it can pool up on the roof, where it must wait for days or even weeks until evaporation eventually absorbs it back into the air. Meanwhile, it adds pressure to your roof and moisture to the roofing materials meant to protect your home from water. Repeated episodes like this can, over time, lead to leaks and structural damage. Additionally, many flat roofs are protected by just one large asphalt-soaked membrane – as opposed to the many separate shingles that comprise a traditional pitched roof. Even normal settling of a house can cause this single membrane to buckle and crack, requiring extra attention to ensure its integrity over time.
It’s crucial for owners of flat-roof homes to have their roofs routinely inspected and maintained to address these issues as they arise and prevent them from developing into significant and costly problems.
