Flat Roof Options And Maintenance

By definition, flat roofs are roofs that have a pitch less than 15 degrees. The special sloping angles call for special technical solutions and flat roofs also have special maintenance needs – here are some of the maintenance flat roof repair procedures that are essential for maintaining your flat roof in tip-top shape:

  • Cleaning – flat roofs being flat, debris, such as leaves, twigs, branches and dust tends to accumulate in larger quantities on the surface of these low-sloping roofs. However, the special angle comes with benefits, too – you can easily remove all debris with the help of a leaf blower;
  • Cut overhanging tree branches – trim your trees regularly, large branches that fall on the roof can cause severe damage;
  • Remove ponding water after storms – the accumulation of water can cause lots of trouble on flat roofs, so you must avoid ponding as much as you can;
  • Remove snow – snow is heavy and if there is lots of it and thawing comes, it can quickly turn into large quantities of water, so grab a shovel when the snowing stops, go up on the roof and make sure you remove the snow that has accumulated or call a roofer to do it for you.
