Spring is right around the corner after a cold and brutal winter in the Greater Toronto Area. Soon, the melting snow will try to find its way through the cracks and holes in your flat roof which can lead to flat roof leaks, damaged insulation and damage to the deck of your roof. Frozen ice dams have formed over the winter and have backed up hundreds, if not, thousands of flat roofs across the GTA.
Your flat roof membrane, insulation and vapour barrier may have gradually become less effective after years of enduring Canada’s extreme climate and weather patterns. At this time of the season, it is critical to make sure that as the snow begins to melt, the water is carried away from your property and the drains are functioning properly. For personal safety, avoid doing this yourself and have your drains and flat roof inspected by a professional flat roofing contractor.
You might have experienced a leak to your flat roof before or are currently experiencing reoccurring leaks to your flat roof. This is a sign that the integrity of your flat roof construction has been compromised. Many contractors will often suggest a full flat roof replacement or extensive flat roof repairs without knowing the true extent of the damage. Seek a professional flat roofing contractor with the knowledge and tools to locate the source of the leak and make repairs to the damaged areas of the roof.
