What Are the Most Common Issues with Flat Roofing in Poole?

At The Flat Roofing Company, our team are equipped to tackle all manner of issues to do with flat roofing in Dorset, including:

Standing Water | Shrinking | Blistering | HVAC Damage


The protective membrane portion of flat roofing in Dorset is commonly comprised of EPDM. While this material is highly versatile, it does have a tendency to shrink around the edges causing the seams to loosen and allowing moisture and cold air to seep in. If this happens, your commercial property could be compromised by damp, mould, dry and wet rot. You may also find that your heating bills escalate as a result.


If your flat roofing in Poole is beginning to blister, call our team right away. Blistering occurs when moisture becomes trapped between the roof and the membrane. As the moisture starts to expand it causes pockets to form if these pockets rupture the membrane will be compromised leaving the roof exposed. Blistering usually occurs if the roofing has been compromised allowing water to seep in under the membrane.

Standing Water

While it’s not necessarily noticeable, all flat roofing in Bournemouth is built with a slight incline to allow water to run off. If a roof begins to sag, water will begin to pool adding additional weight to the roof and placing strain on the entire structure. Often, this is the result of wear and tear but it can also be caused by blockages as well as impact damage from a falling tree.

Here at The Flat Roofing Company, we have many years’ experience in the industry and possess a wealth of knowledge and expertise when it comes to issues related to standing water. We can rectify the issue before the protective membrane is damaged and any leakage occurs.

 HVAC Damage

If an air conditioning unit is installed inside the roofing system itself, its presence can cause no end of issues for flat roofing in Bournemouth. The condensation and vibrations created by the unit can destabilise the integrity of the roof causing cracks to appear as a result. If these cracks are not rectified quickly, the entire roofing system will be compromised.

How Can We Assist You With Your Flat Roofing in Bournemouth?

At The Flat Roofing Company, we specialise in the provision and installation of quality roofing systems. We also assist with the maintenance and cleaning of flat roofing in Dorset keeping it in excellent working condition.

Gutters, Soffits and Fascias

No roof would be complete without gutters, soffits and fascias. While soffits and fascias enhance the overall aesthetics, gutters are required to drain water away from the roof and into an adjacent drain. Over time, wear and tear can take its toll causing gutters, fascias and soffits to wear out. Fortunately, our team have what it takes to fully restore or replace worn out gutters, soffits and fascias.

Single-Ply Membrane

We’re proud to supply a variety of options when it comes to single-ply membranes. Such options include adhered and mechanically fixed systems. Single-ply membranes are suitable for warm and cold roofs, are durable and aesthetically pleasing. Whichever system you choose, you can rest assured that it will be highly UV resistant. Whether your flat roofing is old and worn out or has sustained damage, you can count on our membrane options to deliver results.

There are many benefits to single-ply membranes, which include:

  • Guaranteed to Last for Up to 20 Years
  • Cost-Effective
  • Suitable for New Builds and Refurbishments

Flat Roof Cleaning and Maintenance

Spot checks and routine maintenance are required to keep flat roofing in Bournemouth and Poole in full working order. Our cleaning service is intended to remove things such as algae, moss and bird droppings, the latter of which can be particularly corrosive towards roofing materials. Regular cleaning also keeps your roof looking fantastic all year long which is a huge consideration for businesses that which to create a great first impression.


If your property is equipped with skylights, you’ll be delighted to hear that we can provide installation and waterproofing services. These services can be chosen on their own or as part of a roofing project. We can even take care of the carpentry services necessary to add in skylights, so you can rest assured that all work will be completed to your exacting requirements. The beauty of the single-ply membrane is that it attaches the skylight to the flat roof once securely fastened into the system.

Integrity testing is a cutting-edge method that utilises state-of-the-art technology to track down any underlying issues. The idea is to eliminate the need to overhaul or replace the entire roofing system. This non-invasive technique delivers unparalleled results and can be used to keep costs down to a minimum while saving time.
