How to tell if you need a flat roof replacement in Houston
As an owner of a building that uses a flat roof perhaps you are wondering when would you have your roofing replaced. In other types of roof systems, like a peaked roof, you can notice shingles coming apart and fluttering in the wind. A flat roof does not have these tell-tale signs. They have little by way of observable visual manifestations that your roof is crumbling and that it needs replacement. Perhaps, the most noticeable indication that replacement should be done is leaking.
Signs that you need to replace your flat roof
While the durability of roofing depends on the type and build of the material you have for the roof, the following are the ways by which you can tell that it is time to replace your flat roof in Houston:
- If you can see holes and your roof buckles and you see leaks into the ceiling, it’s time for roof replacement.
- If your roof is bound together by panels and such panels have disintegrated and cannot be repaired at all, you need to replace your roof.
- If upon inspection of the vapor barrier, you find it torn and that you have leaks originating from your ceiling, it’s an indication that you need to replace your flat roof.
- If the wind has blown off the tar paper and exposed the undercoat of your tar and rock-covered roof, you should most likely replace your roof.
