How to Extend the Life of a Flat Roof

Flat roof

If you have a flat roof on your commercial building, it’s crucial to properly maintain it to ensure it has a long life. At ACR1, our expert team has put together some tips on how you can extend the life of your flat roof:

Add Additional Waterproofing

Waterproofing is critical to protect your roofing materials from water damage. The last thing you want is water to deteriorate your roofing materials, causing leaks and other severe and costly damage. At ACR1, we will work with you to determine whether or not your flat roof requires additional waterproofing.

Proper Drainage is Key

Flat roofs rely heavily on adequately designed and well-maintained drainage systems to prevent water from ponding on the roof and causing damage, especially along the seams.

You should regularly inspect your drainage system to ensure they are functioning properly and are not clogged with leaves and other debris. Your roof should also be cleared of debris regularly to help keep the drain clear and functioning.

We also recommend installing guards on your drainage outlets. This will help prevent leaves and other debris from blocking the drains.

Don’t Skip Roof Inspections

Regular roof inspections help to ensure that small issues don’t grow into bigger, more costly repairs. During a roof inspection, you need to check for cracks, splits, and other damage.

Pay Attention to the Surroundings

Look at the trees surrounding your building and check for low-hanging branches that could scrape and damage your flat roof. Make sure the trees are maintained and pruned properly to prevent damage to your roof.
