Flat Roof to Pitch Roof Conversions

Flat roofs- used to be an economic way in days gone by of providing a quick and easy answer to a roofing solution. Usually, flatroofs are used when pitched roofs cannot be. What must be watched out for is water infiltration when it is not regularly maintained and routinely repaired for damages. 

Short Term Repairs
In the past, patching up with temporary repairs are all that have been economically possible but in the longer term that form of approach can be more expensive than replacing the roof. It is well known that flat roofs have not performed satisfactorily over a period of time - less than 10 years in some instances - have been well documented but regrettably the proven advantages technically and aesthetically, of the pitched roof, were left in favour of the economical approach.

Flat roof leaks can be a devil to locate. The reason is that water can enter one spot and not really express itself inside until it is far away from the leak.

Flat roofs allow the leak to travel in any direction from the leak point. That is why they are tough to locate.......
