Understanding the main types of damage that can arise in your membrane flat roof during the summer is the key to proper maintenance. When it comes to flat roofing, keeping track with all these problems will help you make the best choices when it comes to maintenance and choosing the right experts to consult when repairs are needed:
- When air is trapped between the felt or layers of your flat roof, a phenomenon happens that is known as blistering. Blistering is caused by the swelling up of the air pockets when temperatures rise, and it’s not easy to counteract. A large enough blister allows for ponding and even water flowing through the roof. Consider more frequent maintenance checks during the summer to prevent this problem from appearing.
- It’s also a good idea to have an expert check for dirt, debris and stray leaves and branches on your flat roof or clogging your gutters. You can perform this maintenance check and clean the debris yourself.
- Proper maintenance should also include removing overhead, extended tree limbs and branches. What use is there to temporarily eliminate a problem, if you don’t remove its source?
There are many other possible repair and maintenance tasks, however, when it comes to summer maintenance, the above are the main concerns you should keep in mind. If you are in need of additional repairs or roofing services, contact CLC Roofing Inc. Fort Worth.
