If you fail to address even minor roof problems, your roof could soon turn into an expensive issue. Damage your flat roof result in leaks, but also the rain damage caused by leaks can lead to rot and mold to take over your roofing structure.
There are several areas where leaks are common. Roof flashing is one. The flashing material connects chimneys, vents and other roofing structures with the roofing. The idea is to seal any gap between the roof structure and material. If flashing doesn’t work then it will leave a significant problem area and can cause serious damage if it is not addressed.
It is vital to carry out regular checks of your internal and external roofs to avoid small leaks from developing into a major issue. Lessenings can be stopped by conducting regular inspections. Be sure to look on your roof for issues with water pooling, leaks or flashing that is missing. If you see anything that should be repaired, call a professional immediately.
