Flat Roofs can present serious challenges for homeowners in Albuquerque and Surrounding Areas. Clint McKie of Desert Sun Inspections presented some common issues that homeowners are often faced with. Here is the key, you must periodically have your roofs checked. It is worth the money
Let's go swimming on the roof? Flat roofs and the dangers.
There are many different ways to install flat roofs. Many are very good designs that will hold up to the test of mother nature and the riggers of the weather she throws at the roofs.
But when the sagging starts after years of use and repair after repair, then the problems begin to start and could become a dangerous situation.
On this inspection I had completed, I did get up on the home next door to get a better shot of the existing problems with this flat roof.
After a very good rain in which we have not seen for a while, there was a lot and I mean a lot of standing water on this roof.
Enough to go swimming? perhaps. But enough to be concerned about the structural integrity of the roof and stress on the sub structure as well.
The ponding of water on this roof was very bad. Only time before there are multiple leaks.
See how deep the water is on the rear of the home. Not a good thing. I wonder if the owners ever watched T.V via the satellite dish? LOL
Remember to have a qualified roofing expert look at your flat roof and make the proper repair's if needed.
Have a great day everyone.
