Common Problems With Flat Roofing
Overall, flat roofs are fairly durable. However, over their lifetime, they will encounter problems. Below are some of the most common ones to experience.
- Alligatoring: This occurs on flat roofs built with asphalt. When this loses elasticity with age, the roof can crack and bubble, loosely resembling alligator skin.
- Leaking: Since flat roofs don’t make it easy for water to run off, they are more prone to developing leaks than other types of roofing.
- Membrane Buckles: As houses settle, the roof does as well. Flat roofs tend to have a membrane that is in a single, large piece. Excessive settling can cause membrane bucking, which is unsafe.
- Cracks: Flat roofs typically have more pressure exerted on them than pitched roofs. This pressure builds over time, and if it becomes excessive, the roof can crack.
- Detached Flashing: As the roof expands and contracts, it can result in the flashing pulling away from the edges, leaving exposed spots for moisture to enter the home.
