Modern flat roofing has long no leak guarantees, provides a reliable and durable low cost roofing solution with low ongoing maintenance costs.

Leaking Flat Roofing
A leak in the top layer of your existing flat roof will show in the room below, although any water staining on the ceiling will not necessarily correspond with the damage location on the outside of the roof. With the various layers within the flat roof structure, the water will have a longer path to reach the ceiling and will travel throughout the layers in non-vertical directions.
- Ponding is a common cause of leaks. This occurs where there is ineffective drainage which can be attributed to a variety of factors. Poor maintenance along with poor installation can cause rainwater to gather and sit for long periods of time of the flat roof. Ponding in excess of 25mm will begin to cause significant damage.
- Gravel was used in many early examples of flat roofing was covered in gravel as a protective outer layer. Discoloured gravel in one particular place or places can be an indication that there is water filtering through the outer layers, making its way through to the inside.
- Wear and tear over time on flat roofs, like all shapes and roof structure, do not last forever although they will last longer if well maintained.
- Condensation from within the building can cause problems with the internal structure of the flat roof, which can also cause it to fail.
