Keep your flat roof in top condition

Flat roofs typically need more maintenance than pitched ones, so call a company you can trust to keep it in top condition.

Exposure to the elements

Many flat roofs are covered with felt, and although this is a cost-effective roofing material, this becomes brittle over time due to weather damage and exposure to the elements. This leads it to form cracks and splits due to its inability to expand and contract. Many flat roofs also have a layer of gravel over the felt to protect it from exposure, but this can cause issues with gutter blockage.

Regularly check your flat roof

It is possible for a damaged flat roof to be leaking for a while without any sign from inside the property. Flat roofs are often put down over chipboard, and this can soak up the water and expand, then contract again as it dries out. This action of constant expanding and contracting can cause damage to the structure of the building, so it’s important to regularly check your flat roof for any signs of damage.

Reliable and competitively priced flat roofing service

The longevity of flat roofs depends on the roofing material, but felt is expected to last between 10 and 12 years, so it’s important to keep on top of repairs and to expect to replace your roof if it’s been there for this length of time. Fortunately we provide a reliable and competitively priced flat roofing service across Newcastle and the surrounding areas, for both domestic and commercial clients. We provide a service that you can rely on.
