A Leaking Flat Roof? Let Northern Roofline Help
One thing is for certain, when you have a leaking flat roof, you will know about it pretty quickly. Deterioration with fascias and soffits can happen over time, and it may be a couple of years before it is noticeable and manifests itself in a problem you have to deal with. But with a leaking roof, you know about it usually quite quickly.
That is something of a double-edged sword of course. With all the heavy rain we have experienced recently, the good thing about having a leaking roof is that you know about it straight away. The bad thing though, is that you know about it straight away! There is no escape from a leaking flat roof, and immediate action is required before your roof structure starts to become badly affected and your building contents are potentially ruined.
Robust and long-lasting flat roof solutions
This deterioration can be due to poor materials used in the flat roof construction, or because of poor installation techniques used, and while there is not much you can do about bad weather and heavy rain happening, there is something you can do about the quality of flat roofing you have installed.
At Northern Roofline we use a flat roofing system called Sarnafil, which is a PVC single-ply membrane which has a BBA life expectancy in excess of forty years. Sarnafil is renowned throughout the world for providing high quality, long lasting flat roof solutions.
Sarnafil flat roofs are resistant to solar rays and harsh weather conditions that can damage other types of flat roofs. This also means they are immune to movement due to expansion of the wooden structure when temperatures change, which is a really common problem with flat roofing systems. Sarnafil is also resistant to plant or moss growth, which can also damage the integrity of the flat roof by causing cracking.
Flat roofing guarantees with Northern Roofline
Essentially, we can provide an insurance-backed guarantee on our materials and labour, and the Sarnafil product comes with BBA certification which states that the quality of the material will be maintained for over forty years.
Your flat roofing will experience a lot of heavy weather in that time, but what a lovely thought to know that you don’t have to worry about leaking roofs and the possibility of one day opening up a room to find a cascade of rain water and dripping wet contents and fittings.
With Northern Roofline we can provide this peace of mind, so whether your flat roof is for an extension, a loft conversion, a garage, a storage unit or any other outbuilding, contact us and we can design a quality and leak-free flat roofing solution, and make sure you have a robust and durable flat roof for many years to come.
