Best Ways to Do Flat Roof Repair
2
Flat roof repair you would need to be careful, if
your roof is flat. Using flat roofs for
decoration purposes has now become a preferred
choice for many residential homes nowadays.
3
If you want to maintain your roof properly you
can take a look at some of the important steps
listed below.

Flat roof repair - Important steps
Removing the damaged area and replacing it with a
new section would be ideal for small damaged
areas of the roof. Dirt and gravel from the
damaged section of the roof should be cleaned by
grabbing a broom and sweeping it clean.
5
The gravel should not be discarded and can be
used for repairs. The damaged area can be removed
by using a straight edged utility knife. You will
need to put some effort for cutting a rectangular
section of the roofing material.
6
The first layer of material needs to be cut first
and the other layers that are damaged can be cut
after this and this is one of the important steps
of restoring the roof.
  • Depending on the size of the section you removed
    for repair, the replacement piece should
    approximately be of the same size. Inside the
    cutout area, you can spread some plastic roofing
    repair cement and you must ensure that the cement
    is over the edges of the cutout section.

7
  • Roofing cement can be used to cover the first
    replacement patch and you must extend it by at
    least 3 inches outside the patch perimeter.
    Similar to what you did with the first
    replacement you would need to press down the
    second replacement and hold it in place as you
    cement and nail it.

Flat roof repair made easy
Sweep back the gravel onto the top of the patch
to help hold it in place after the cement has
begun to set in. If the cement has not hardened
the wind could easily pick the patch job and blow
it away and you would have to start the repairs
all over again.

Try to locate leaks by examining the lower lying
areas of the flat roof as this is the area where
most often the damage occurs due to water pooling
there. Soak water by using absorbent materials
and cloths. Look for blisters or a crack in the
roof after the area is completely dry. Use a
knife to open the blister that you had located.
