Common Problems With Flat Roofs In Devon

Flat roofs have a unique design that can make them susceptible to some issues, and this can be especially true in the Devon area, where the weather can turn from sunny to rainy in an instant. With salt and wind corrosion, your flat roof could be seriously impacted in the coastal areas too. Some of the most common problems that your Devon flat roofs can encounter include:


Water leaks are a serious and potentially property-damaging issue in a flat roof. Leaks can be caused by multiple things, including poor fitting, perishing materials and damage.


Cracks can occur in roofing material due to exposure to the elements and even long-term wear and tear. These cracks can lead to water infiltration and more damage.


If you see blisters or bubbling on the surface of your flat roof, this is probably because of trapped moisture or improper roof installation. They can seriously compromise your roof’s integrity.

Standing Water

Standing water can lead to obvious water damage, is especially likely in mineral felt roofs, and can seep into failing joints, expanding and stressing the joint when temperatures freeze. Proper drainage is key!


Condensation can occur within your flat roof during warm and colder periods due to the movement of warm, moist air. This condensation can cause serious water damage and mould growth. It requires smart design and vapour barrier use to avoid condensation occurring.

Wind up-lift damage

Constant and occasional gusts can lift the layers of your flat roof and lead to exposure of the structure and water damage. A properly fitted and sturdy roof is required in coastal and windy spots.

Saltwater Damage

Like wind damage, saltwater damage affects properties close to the coast, where salt water can get blown toward your flat roof and cause degradation of materials.

The good news is that flat roof problems can often be fixed, but you have to act fast to prevent costly damage to your property.

Your Flat Roof Questions Answered!

How Do I Know If My Flat Roof Needs Repair Or Replacement?

Figuring out whether your flat roof needs repair or replacement involves looking for a few clear warning signs. These include water leaks, cracks and visible damage such as splitting or deterioration in the flat roof membrane. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for, our experts can conduct a thorough assessment of your roof and recommend the best solution.

The duration of a repair can depend on a few things. The biggest factor is the extent of the damage. Minor repairs can often be completed in less than a day, while larger repairs may require several days to ensure a comprehensive and lasting fix.

At Proactive Flat Roofing, we can build, repair, replace or maintain your flat roofing in Devon. We do it all, and we do it well! Flat roofing can be complicated to get right, which is why we always advise you to choose your flat roofing company carefully, whether it’s to replace or repair. With over 23 years in the industry, we’re glad to be able to offer the flat roofing expertise we do so you can focus on making the most of your property.

With regular maintenance and the use of quality materials in the initial build, a flat roof can have a lifespan of 20-25 years or even longer. Our experts can guide you on the proper care to extend the longevity of your flat roof.

In Devon, flat roof damage can come from several common culprits. First of all is the weather exposure, which can be expected in the sometimes stormy climate of Devon, but sun exposure can be just as damaging as rain. And the risks don’t end there for Devon flat roofs, as wind exposure and salt water can create additional hazards for your roofing.

Then there is standing water, where water pools in certain spots of your roof because of poor construction, and finally, a lack of maintenance. To prevent damage, regular inspections and timely repairs are definitely essential. Our team can assess your roof’s condition and recommend preventative measures

We certainly can. It’s possible to repair flat roofing in wet weather, but it can also depend on the extent of the damage and the safety of the conditions. If there’s a drizzle or a downpour during a minor repair, our team can still get to work. But if your damage is severe or requires full replacement, we may need to assess the situation and ensure it’s safe and practical to go ahead as scheduled.

Absolutely. At Proactive Flat Roofing, we are proud to offer a unique Eco-Warm Roofing System supporting the environment and the energy efficiency of your home. You may be surprised to find out most older flat roofs in the UK have little to no insulation in them, but our Vanguard Eco-Warm Flat Roof solutions give you high-performing insulation to reduce heat loss, save you money on heating bills and protect the environment.

We can’t stress enough how important it is to maintain your flat roof to help it live longer. You should clear debris, inspect for damage and address any obvious issues promptly. Ideally, you can schedule annual professional inspections so problems are found early and you don’t end up paying out for a whole new roof when it could have been a quick repair.

To prepare for a flat roof repair or replacement, clear the work area of any obvious obstacles, such as bins or large objects. You could also secure any fragile items and make sure pets are kept in a safe area during the repair process. Our team will let you know in detail what to expect when you get in touch.
