Don’t Put Up With Leaks In Your Flat Roof This Winter

Most flat roofs have a slight pitch in them to allow rain water to run off, but you can still suffer leaks with a flat roof, and they can sometimes be hard to detect. Winter is of course the worst, but the most likely time to experience a leak in a flat roof, and it may be a period where the building is not often used. So a leak can occur and you may not notice it for a few weeks, by which time, expensive damage can take place.

Flat roofs are more exposed to harsh weather and so you should always take extra precautions against leaks and water damage. At Northern Roofline, we use a single-ply PVC membrane called Sarnafil, which comes with a manufacturer guarantee in excess of forty years.

Protecting the inside and outside of your flat roof building

The protection Sarnafil gives our flat roofs means that water ingress is prevented, but also other harmful forms of exposure, such as solar rays. Sarnafil protects the timber structure of your flat roof from the thermal expansion that can happen when the temperature changes, and so the infrastructure of your building is safe and as well as the protection from moisture, this means that your building will maintain a more stable temperature, which is good for the internal environment and the contents of your building.

Our flat roof material is so long-lasting because it can absorb moisture, this means that it doesn’t blister and it is also easy to clean because it has a lacquer coating. This coating also prevents the build-up of moss, algae and plant growth, so as well as being maintenance-free, our roofs will retain their appearance also.

How water damage can affect your flat roof building

Water damage can create permanent problems in a flat roof building, which can be costly and distressing. Water ingress can ruin décor, furniture and the contents of a room, which can cause insurance problems in addition to this. The structure of your building is also at risk, because if water gets into your timbers, the integrity of the building is susceptible to deterioration and you may even need to re-build it. It is very easy for water damage to become a long term problem, unless you can detect it early, so it makes practical and financial sense to protect your flat roof as much as possible.  

Our experts at Northern Roofline are trained and approved installers of Sarnafil, and they recommend this material as the best protection from the harshest winter weather that you know will come. If you contact our sales team today we can arrange for a no obligation quote for installing the best water protection material for your flat roof, and our experts will talk to you about the costs and potential benefits. You shouldn’t have to put up with water leaks in your flat roof this winter, so talk to us and we will find the most practical and cost-effective solution for you.
