The main cause for a flat roof leaking is due to weather damage resulting in material deterioration. To repair a flat roof can be as time-consuming as the initial installation; this is due to the process of applying bitumen or asphalt in a combination of layers of fibreglass or roofing felt. The materials are attacked by heat/sunlight causing the bitumen to solidify and then cool down resulting in swelling and cracking, thus creating a leaking flat roof. This is the reason why stone chipping is placed on the final installation to reflect the sun’s rays. It all sounds good, right? So what’s the problem? Unforuntately, despite this method being quite effective in the short term, it will not provide a lasting solution for the problem since this kind of protection has a short life span.
