What could be the problem with your flat roof?

Roof Penetrations: refer to anything that requires a break in the roofing membrane and roof deck. Common examples on flat roofs are pipe penetrations, drainage, ventilation, AC units and skylights. 

Improper installation of penetrations: can cause leaks by creating gaps or spaces around the penetration that allow water to enter the building.

Lack of proper sealing of penetrations: allowing water to enter the building, leading to leaks.

Movement of penetrations over time:  thermal expansion and contraction, wind, earthquakes and other factors can cause the sealing materials to fail and allow water to penetrate the roof.

Age: Over time, the materials used to seal penetrations can deteriorate and lose their effectiveness, leading to leaks.

Wear and tear: Penetrations are exposed to the elements and can become damaged due to sun, wind, and rain, leading to leaks.

Poorly installed or damaged flashing: Flashing is the material used to seal joints and seams in a roof and prevent water from entering the building. If the flashing is not properly installed or if it becomes damaged, it can lead to leaks.

Common Causes of Leaks in Other Types of Roofs

Poorly installed or damaged flashing: Flashing is the material used to seal joints and seams in a roof and prevent water from entering the building. If the flashing is not properly installed or if it becomes damaged, it can lead to leaks.

Missing or damaged shingles: Shingles protect the roof from water and weather damage. If shingles are missing or damaged, they can allow water to penetrate the roof, leading to leaks.

Clogged gutters: Clogged gutters can cause water to overflow and enter the building, leading to leaks.

Ice damming: Ice damming occurs when snow on the roof melts and refreezes at the edge of the roof, forming a dam that prevents water from flowing off the roof. This can lead to water backing up under the roofing material and causing leaks.

Aging roofs: Over time, roofs can become worn and damaged, allowing water to penetrate and cause leaks.

Weather damage: Strong winds, heavy rain, hail, and other forms of severe weather can cause damage to a roof, leading to leaks.

Poor ventilation: Poor roof ventilation can cause condensation to form inside the building, leading to leaks and other types of roof damage.
