When you have an angled roof, it is easier to visually observe what is happening to it over time. It is a different story when the roof is a flat roof, unless you can look down on it from another level or second story window. Because of this, it is easy to forget about its condition until water marks start to show on the ceiling of the area it covers. When water gets under the roofing materials, has a way of traveling along beams and other structural elements within the roof, making its appearance a good distance from where it started coming in! Sumner Roofing representatives will be able to track down the starting point of any leak.

Keep in mind, if you walk on the roof, it may look and feel secure, but your weight can cause damage in certain areas. Do not walk along the edge of flashing, or skylights. If, for any reason, it does not feel firm, get off the roof and call for a professional flat roof repairman.

There are obvious issues that can be seen when looking at a flat roof that are signs of trouble, depending on the type of roofing material that is used.  It is important to clean off any debris that is present. While many do-it-yourself sites give you detailed instructions on flat roof repair, it is the professional who will recognize problems when they pop up as they so often do when tackling a large job.
