What Are the Problems Associated with a Flat Roof?

Flat roofing typically consists of a waterproof membrane which is applied on top of a horizontal base which is fixed to ceiling joists. Flat roofs are often seen as a more vulnerable covering than other alternatives such as slates. This is in part due to poor installation as is found in many UK flat roofs, but also because this type of roof tends to be more leak-prone and has a shorter life-span. 

Potential Problems

Unfortunately due to their design, traditional flat roofs commonly encounter problems which if left unattended can cause damage to the roof structure or in some severe circumstances even damage the interior of your property. Some common issues that you may come across:


If your flat roof has a leak it will typically be noticeable from the inside of your property and should be attended to immediately.


With flat roofs there is a lack of effective drainage which can cause rainwater to gather and sit on top of the roof for long periods of time. If the water is not tended to it can significantly damage the roof.

Wear and Tear

Regular maintenance will help your flat roof to last forever.
