How to Repair Flat Roofs

  • When the roof leaks, you must call an expert to
    repair it. There is no point in cutting corners.
  • However, sometimes, the problem is small that you
    can repair.
  • Here is a step-by-step guide to fix a small
    problem.

4
Step 1
  • You must begin with looking for the source of the
    leak from inside the house. You need to be
    vigilant while doing that because water has a
    peculiar property.
  • It leaks through a different place and gets
    pooled in a different spot. Hence, the leak may
    not be necessary at the same place where the
    water is accumulated.
  • Once you find out the leaky spot, now it is the
    time to get on the roof.

5
Step 2
  • Now you know the location from the interior.
    Check the spot on the roof now. Is there any
    visible damage? If no, then check the vents,
    flashing or roof membrane.
  • Dont forget about your safety while doing that.
    Dont take any risk if the roof is very high or
    you dont have safety measures.

6
Step 3
  • You should clean the area where the leaky spot is
    suspected. Remove all debris or foreign objects.
    You must determine that the leak is due to some
    external reason like the hailstorm or it is
    age-related wear.

Step 4
Remove all water from the area and make it dry.
If there is moisture trapped under repair, then
it may cause the growth of mold. For significant
leakage, you need to call professional roof
repair service.

Step 5
  • Check the damage. Are there any blisters? If yes,
    then the water has seeped through the layers in
    the roof. Check the cracks. The repair method you
    follow depends on the type of damage you have.
  • Step 6
  • Cut through the damaged membrane. Remove the
    moisture if any. Cut all damaged layers without
    damaging the roofing felt. Dry the whole area
    well.

Step 7
  • Apply roofing cement to the leak after peeling
    back the layers of the membrane.
  • Apply it to the whole section underneath the
    membranes you cut away.
  • Thus, all layers will stick together. Press the
    membrane flaps to the cement and reseal the cut.

9
Step 8
  • Once the flaps are laid down, nail them to the
    roof well. Thus, the leak will get adequately
    sealed. Cover the nails with the roofing cement
    to seal it well.
  • These steps explain the process of repairing a
    flat roof.
