Will your flat roof survive the winter?

Your flat roof may not survive this winter without a leak if it is more than ten years old or has one of the tell-tale signs that shows it is about to fail.

With winter fast approaching, now is a good time to check your flat roof to see if it can withstand the cold and rain for the next few months. After a warm summer, your flat roof will have naturally expanded in the heat. A sharp cold spell will cause it to contract and may trigger cracks to appear on the surface.

Signs you need to replace your flat roof this winter

Most traditional flat roofs will start to have problems after ten years and by 15 years almost all will need replacing. Signs that you need to act quickly before the bad winter weather kicks in are cracks around the edges or on the roof itself, ‘ponding’ on the surface, blisters or holes in the roof, leaks appearing on the ceiling inside, the roof is covered in moss and grass that is eating into the surface or the flat roof panels have come apart.
