What you need to know about flat roofs!

  • Finding a leak on a sloped roof or a shingled roof is far harder than on a flat roof.
  • Flat roofs are easier to work on and hence often cheaper to fix.
  • A flat roof will normally last 20-25 years. If your roof is younger then it may be under warranty
  • Find out what your roof is made of (we can help; this affects the cost of repair) eg felt, asphalt, lead, other metals, fibreglass, EPDM or single-ply membranes
  • A rough idea of how long the flat roof has been leaking. If it has been for some time the saturated brickwork and masonry and weakened structural timbers could be an issue
  • Weak points on a roof like this are around the edges and abutment points
  • If you see a large puddle of water on your roof this is called pooling and is one of the main problems with flat roofs as it places extra stress on the joints and seals

Been told you need a new flat roof?

Sometimes the defects on a customer’s flat roof are so too extensive that a repair would be uneconomical.

In this case, one of our roofing surveyors would complete a site visit and provide you with a detailed assessment report of the findings and a quote to get the new roof completed.

ELC flat roofs are typically 15% cheaper than our competitors.

This is due simply to the volume of roofs we work on.

All-new flat roofs are guaranteed for 25 years.

Roof leak repairs

Give us a call if:

  • The leak in your roof is caused by a slipped tile or an impact from a falling object, tree branch etc.
  • The flat roof is leaking in one area, from one hole or a tear
  • The tear is across a large part of the flat roof or there are multiple holes then there is no quick fix a new roof is required

When you don’t need a roof repair

Calling ELC to repair a roof that has the below problems is probably a waste of your money – in these cases, it might be better for a new roof.

  • The flat roof is very old and has tears and holes in multiple places
  • The roof is clearing not flat, ie it is bowing, dipping, bending or buckling
  • The surface of the roof has deteriorated to such an extent that it is letting in water

In these cases, ELC would not fix the roof as it would need repairing again and again.
