When Are Repairs Needed?
Flat roof problems come with a variety of visible and often easily identifiable symptoms. The most stressful time for a roof is during a bout of harsh weather. After a severe storm you should be on the lookout for tell-tale signs of a leak or other problems such as mould. If you notice water stains, puddles collected on the roof, cracks on the walls or ceiling, loose seams or broken flashings, these are all signs that flat roof repairs are necessary.
When To Replace a Flat Roof
There are several factors to consider if you are wondering whether a flat roof replacement is needed.
- Lifespan: Typically, a flat roof lasts around 20 years. If your roof is getting to this age it means it is nearing the end of its lifespan and you should start planning a replacement.
- Damage beyond repair: Another instance that might require a flat roof replacement is when there has been a leak and it has significantly damaged the roofing system. In some cases it will cost less to replace the entire roof than repair damages by section.
- Weathered appearance: If your roof is looking weathered on the surface it might be a good idea to schedule an inspection to detect any potential problems before they arise and assess whether a replacement is the best way to proceed.

Flat Roof Life Expectancy
Today, flat roofing systems should last between 15-20 years. This estimate is based on factors such as weather conditions, regular maintenance, quality of the materials, correct installation and prompt repairs.
Maintenance & Repairs: To get the most out of your flat roof’s life expectancy maintenance and check-ups should be carried out regularly. Seasonal maintenance includes clearing the roof of ice and snow in the winter, and leaves and debris all other times of the year. In the event of a leak or other roofing problem, repairs should be carried out immediately in order to prevent further damage such as mould growth due to excess moisture. Keeping your flat roof in check and preventing weathering from natural factors can make it last longer and need less repairs in the long run.
