Often, a minor repair can be carried out on your roof if it is caught early enough. If the damage is extensive or the covering is old and needs regular repair, it can be more cost-efficient to replace it.
Some of the latest roofing systems, such as EPDM rubber roofing, offer superior performance and longevity over many traditional systems, such as felt. Replacing outdated roofing materials can protect your roofing for the long term and significantly reduce roof repairs.

If your roof is leaking, it is critical to address the issue as quickly as possible to avoid further, more permanent damage. Once water begins to get inside the property, damage to roof timbers, ceilings and interior decorations and furniture can quickly follow.

It is important to regularly inspect flat roofing to look for signs of damage. This can become a useful part of your maintenance program. Check from an upstairs window to make sure the membrane is in good condition and there are no tears or visible damage. Also look for standing ponds of water on the surface after rain as this can be a clear indicator of an issue.
Keep gutters clear and free flowing too. Clogged gutters can be a common cause of roofing issues, so keeping them clear is a vital part of the maintenance of your flat roof. Talk to Permaroof Wakefield about our no-maintenance solution to debris-free gutters.
There are several factors that can impact the longevity of your roof system. These can include, but are not limited to – the pitch of the roof, the maintenance aspects, the installation method and also the type of roofing materials you choose.
Selecting a modern system such as EPDM for your flat roof, for example, will offer aesthetic value but also longevity with a 50-year life expectancy. Having your roofing system designed and installed professionally will also contribute to the performance over the long term.
EPDM roofing systems deliver 100% waterproofing over a life expectancy of more than five decades once installed correctly. Typically installed in a single sheet, EPDM has fewer seams or joins which can be traditionally vulnerable points within other roofing systems.
Permaroof Wakefield provide insurance-backed workmanship guarantees and long membrane warranty to give you the peace of mind you’re looking for in an EPDM waterproofing system.
