Maintenance guide to avoid flat roof repair

Flat roofs are those with a pitch of less than 15
degrees. You will generally find that unless you
approach a specialist non-standard home insurance
broker, most insurers will struggle to insure a
flat roof property due to concerns with their
endurance

They can essentially have a long life span, but
only if they are correctly maintained. Life span
will also be dependent on the flat roof materials
used and you will generally find that felt or
asphalt-based roofs are less durable compared to
slate or more modern materials such as EPDM.

They can essentially have a long life span, but
only if they are correctly maintained. Life span
will also be dependent on the flat roof materials
used and you will generally find that felt or
asphalt-based roofs are less durable compared to
slate or more modern materials such as EPDM.
Blistering happens when air is trapped between
the layers of felt or the felt substrate. When
the air heats it causes air pockets which can
lead to puncture when the blister breaks
particularly if it is a larger blister and
located on a join. If this happens then water can
pass through the roof.

Insuring a flat roof
Flat roofs are often seen as an insurance risk
because they're thought to make a property more
vulnerable to weather damage, require regular
maintenance and provide easier access to thieves.
In most cases you will require a specialist
insurance provider to cover a property with a
flat roof.
