There may come a time when you need a flat roof survey on your existing roof. 

A flat roof survey is simply a close inspection of the roof which will highlight any leaks or defeats and will allow you to gauge whether you need to replace the entire roof or if a repair job will do the best. The survey will include an inspection of the abutments, flashings, weathering details, eaves and verges. 

It will also include a condition report on its efficiency of keeping water out. Many leaks in flat roofs are not that obvious and often need a bit of detective work to track down the source of the flat roof leak. A leak at one corner of a room can often be caused by something at the complete other end of the roof surface. This is because water can easily travel between the roofing felt layers before dropping to below and exposing itself in water damage. A flat roof survey will normally provide you with a solution as to the source of the leak and give you an idea of the hidden damage to the boards or joists that may have already occurred. 

Finally the results of the flat roof survey will also provide you with an idea as to whether or not a simple repair is necessary or its total replacement will be required together with an indication of likely costs.
