Flat Roofs Have Many Benefits
For decades, flat roofs have been popular among Panama City Beach residents. In addition to being stylish and cost-effective, flat roofs typically offer a higher degree of¬†energy efficiency than sloped roofs. In spite of these benefits, flat roofs have a reputation for their susceptibility to leaks and other types of damage. If your flat roof is leaking or has sustained damaged, the flat roof repair specialists at Dan Tennis Roofing are available to take your phone call. With over 40 years of experience repairing flat roofs, the Dan Tennis Roofing team is always armed with the latest tools to restore your flat roof.
The primary causes of flat roof leaks in Panama City
With its gorgeous white beaches and scenic drives, Panama City was recently recognized by CarRentals.com as one of the¬†top ten road trip destinations in the United States. However, Panama City's gulf coast location puts residents and business owners at an increased risk of roof damage. Homes and commercial buildings with flat roofs are especially prone to leaks due to their distinct design. Some of the¬† top causes of flat roof leaks include the following:
- Harsh weather conditions: Hurricanes, storms, and wind can all impact a roof's durability and performance
- Standing or pooling water: Rainfall is commonplace in Panama City and the design of flat roofs makes them prone to standing water
- Old roofing technology: Rolled asphalt and torch-down systems are examples of outdated roofing technologies that can lead to leaks
If you notice that your roof is leaking, you should contact a roof repair specialist right away. The specialists with Dan Tennis Roofing can help you determine whether your damage is minor or whether a comprehensive roof replacement is in order. They can also outline the various repair options they can offer, along with some recommendations for maintaining your flat roof.
Offering a host of flat roof repair services
The Dan Tennis team knows that every flat roof is different. In addition to understanding the causes of flat roof damage, we have the tools and techniques necessary to treat virtually any type of flat roof damage. Here are just a few of the roof problems that the Dan Tennis team has the expertise to identify and treat:
Aged or poorly maintained flat roofs often lose their elasticity prematurely. This can cause flat roofs to bubble or crack, ultimately resembling the exterior of an alligator. We will survey your roof to determine how severely alligatoring has damaged your roof and will then take the necessary steps to treat your roof. In most cases, treatment involves a thorough cleaning, repair of minor cracks, and application of a new protective coating.
Flat roofs are more likely to exhibit cracking because standing water can exert pressure on them. This increased pressure on your roof results in cracking, thereby opening up your home or business to leaks and precipitation. While small cracks can sometimes be repaired, extensive cracking is sometimes a sign that your entire roof should be replaced.
A buckling roof is not only unsightly, but it is also a threat to your security. Buckling typically occurs when a home or commercial facility shifts on your property, causing your roof membrane to move or buckle. The Dan Tennis team realizes that buckling roofs are dangerous and can quickly evaluate your roof to determine whether repair or replacement is the best option.
Divots and dips
Panama City is known for its periodic thunderstorms, which can cause divots to form in your flat roof's surface. Failure to properly drain this pooling water can cause your roof to deteriorate to the point that it cannot be repaired. At Dan Tennis Roofing, we have the tools and materials to properly repair dips and divots in your flat roof's surface.
Flat roofs were not manufactured to endure leaks or repairwork. Florida's humidity and changing weather conditions can cause your flashing to pull away from your roof's corners and edges. This process can cause moisture to accumulate inside your roof and result in leaks. You can avoid this pitfall by having your roof regularly inspected and maintained by a professional flat roof repair specialists.
The best step to take if your flat roof is leaking
After you ensure that your family and belongings are out of harm's way, the most important thing to do is to contact a trusted roofing repair company right away. Dan Tennis has decades of experience helping Floridians repair their leaking roofs. By seeking the guidance of a professional roofer right away, you can expedite the repair process and minimize or prevent further damage to your flat roof.
Why you should contact a flat roof repair specialist
Not all roof repair companies are created equal. Many roofing technicians are accustomed to repairing sloped roofs, and lack the expertise required to successfully combat flat roof problems such as alligatoring and pooling water.¬† As you evaluate roofing companies, look for roof repair companies that specialize in flat roof repair. This will help ensure that your roof will be repaired with the proper tools and materials.
