Tips for Maintaining Your Flat Roofing for Langley Homes

Your flat roof takes care of you, so take care of it. But all too often, this crucial part of the home gets neglected—that is until you are forced to deal with a leak. Remember, your roof is an investment. And like any asset, you’ll want to do all that you can to protect it from damage.

Keep in mind flat roofs are different than sloped roofs, requiring unique upkeep care. To help prevent major repairs down the road, here are some handy maintenance tips for roofing Langley homes.

Check For Ponding

People and roofs in the Lower Mainland get their fair share of rain. And if the drainage system is not up to snuff, ponding can occur. Left unchecked, pools of water can lead to a variety of serious roof issues, including rusting, roof depression, and leakage. If you’ve noticed signs of ponding, contact a professional in roofing Langley homes as soon as possible.

Inspect Drainage

Rainstorms are a roof’s worst enemy. So, you’ll want to make sure the drainage system is in tip-top shape. To keep water from getting into your home or business, check all drainage points for blockage, removing leaves, twigs, waste materials, and other debris.

Look for Ventilation Blockage

Blocked vents can wreak havoc on your roof. Without proper ventilation, blockages will not only damage the HVAC equipment, but also impact the integrity of your roofing membrane. When you are looking for a residential and commercial roofer in Langley, make sure they offer ventilation inspection and cleaning services.

Examine Seals

Waterproofing is crucial for any roof. Cracked or deteriorated sealants can increase the chance of leaks, mold, and moisture. So, make sure to thoroughly inspect sealants around all structural openings on your roof, including vents, plumbing collars, and coping joints. If the sealant is compromised in any way, consider having a professional inspect and repair the seal.

Keep an Eye Out for Structural Damage

Check the entire roof for signs of structural damage. If you’ve noticed imperfections on your flat roof, don’t wait too long to address the problem. Even the smallest blister, crack, puncture, or tear can lead to big problems in the future.

If its been a while since you’ve spot-checked your roof, now is the perfect time before the cold, rainy season arrives. If you have a flat roof that needs a good once-over, our experienced roofers will do a thorough inspection to keep it in great, leak-proof condition all year long.

Shortly after moving into our new home, we contacted Landmark about doing some maintenance on the structure's 10 year old roof - moss treatment, replacing damaged shingles and faschia board, gutter cleaning, and the installation of a new ridge-vent and water diverters. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and genuinely wanted to help and deliver good value. He and his team delivered on all fronts and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
