Roof Leaks Happen Without Warning
Flat roofs can develop leaks for a variety of reasons and at any point in their lifespan. Workers can accidentally and unknowingly pierce a roof’s waterproof membrane even before construction is completed. Extreme weather, poor design, and poor construction can all conspire to create leaks. These leaks are often too small to spot with the naked eye. But, these tiny leaks can cause substantial damage to a building’s structure in no time at all.
With the amount of rainfall and snow that the nation receives throughout the year, it is best to locate leaks on your roof as soon as possible. It allows small repairs to be made before they become big, expensive ones, or worse, irreparable damage is done.
