Flat Roofing for Garages
Regular maintenance of the flat roof on your garage has a host of long-term benefits. As with every flat roof, a small problem left unattended has the potential to develop into a costly project involving replacement and re-installation. Catching tears, blisters, loose seams and holes on your garage roof early could well save you time, capital and stress in the future.
Flat roofs on garages are liable to leak. These leaks often start small but, over time, they can harm the integrity of your garage’s structure. Maintenance of your flat roof can identify leaks caused by UV rays, physical impact or seasonal freeze-thaw patterns.
The flat roof on your garage needs good guttering, and the guttering itself will benefit from regular maintenance. With routine clearing, you can avoid leaks caused by overflows of water. We offer gutter blocking as part of our gutter installation and maintenance service.
A survey of your garage roof could show up the need for minor repairs. If an outer layer is damaged, for example, we can install a waterproof overlay, usually single ply, which works to reestablish the integrity of the roof. An overlay is often the simplest and quickest choice for a leak and saves you from needing a larger refurbishment project later on.
Other issues a maintenance survey can show up include the need for a protective patch, an application of roof tar, or a paint job. Where blistering has occurred, the cavity can often be filled using a roofing cement.
The overall benefit of roof maintenance is to avoid the worst-case scenario: your flat garage needing complete removal and replacement.
