How do I fix my leaking flat roof?
Leaks are caused by either:
- A crack, split or a hole in the felt
- A joint that has come away from the roof leaking in
- Uneven roof causing water to pool and leak
So to fix these you have two options. Repair or renew.
You can chase your tail a bit trying to repair a flat roof. Repairs are almost always temporary to avoid further water ingress.
