Flat Roof Repair vs. Flat Roof Replacement

There are a few factors that determine whether you need to repair or replace your roof. Determining which avenue to take as a property manager or business owner can be difficult, which is why we hope to ease some of the stress associated with common roofing problems. Duerson Corporation, based in Central Iowa, has trained professionals who help you discern whether your roof should be repaired or replaced.

Flat Roof Repair Options

Even well-maintained roofs will likely need to be repaired at some point during the roof’s lifetime. Extreme weather, debris, foot traffic from routine HVAC maintenance, and/or improper installation can all lead to roof problems. If the roof has adequate insulation and the membrane is in good shape and has not exceeded its lifespan, repairing the roof is an option. Always call a roofing specialist to assess the condition of your roof before deciding on a course of action.

Leaks are most effectively repaired once the source is identified. Common sources of roof leaks include:

These roof issues are most often repairable as long as they are addressed as soon as the problem is noticed. Early detection is key to keep minor repairs from becoming premature roof replacements. Remember to have your roof inspected regularly by a professional to identify potential problems before they get worse.

Complete Flat Roof Replacement

Replacing your flat roof may be more expensive than repairing it, but sometimes completely replacing your roof is a better investment in the long run, particularly if your roof is more than 10-15 years old. Here are a few warning signs that indicate you may need to replace your flat roof.
