How Long Does a Flat Roof Last?

The length of a flat roofs life is dependent upon numerous factors. The primary factors are the quality of the materials used when the flat roof was installed. And the quality of the workmanship of the roofers who made the installation.

Flat roofs usually come with a 10- to 20-year guarantee but can last up to 25 years if installed by a skilled craftsman and maintained properly after installation.

One problem with flat roofing is it does not offer as much drainage as pitched roofing. This can lead to having large pools of water sitting on top of your flat roof. Having this water sit on your roof for long problems can lead to problems developing with your roof and possibly leaks.

When to get a Roof Survey to check your Flat Roof?

If water is present on your roof is would be a good idea to get a professional roofing contractor to come to your property and conduct a roofing survey.

Additionally, it would be wise to get a roofing survey if you suspect the quality of material used on your roof was not of a high standard. By getting a professional roofing contractor to check the integrity of your roof can save you thousands of pounds.
