We have an array of flat roofing systems to suit your budget and timescales as well as the severity of the asphalt roof failure.
Get in touch with us and we will respond promptly and can even attend the property the same day in an emergency, for example, severe water ingress.
Fixing an Asphalt Flat Roof
Our method of maintaining asphalt roofing varies according to conditions such as the age of the roof (asphalt has long been used for roofing since the 19th century), and the scale of the damage. Naturally, we’ll give you alternatives where they are available, but in many cases replacing the roof often is the most cost-effective method long-term.
Minor repairs can often take place on the same day as the initial inspection survey. For more substantial repairs we will need to undertake a full flat roof survey and present you with the best course of action to take.

I’ve been working with Steve Dickinson of London Flat Roofing for almost 10 years and to this day I have not come across anyone with more knowledge on London flat roofs. From leak detection to maintenance, Steve has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of flat roofing.
Our flat roof was previously installed by cowboy builders. Steve did a fantastic job or un-doing their shoddy work and rectifying all of the issues they had caused. No more leaks and no mess either. The price was fair and they got the job done very quickly.
I came back off holiday to find that the flat roof above my kitchen had been leaking and flooded the house. I called and spoke to Steve who came out the same day and within hours he had identified the leak. The very next day he sent out 2 roofers who fixed the leak. Steve then helped me claim through my insurance policy. Very pleased and grateful for his help.
Steve from London Flat Roofing was very knowledgeable. We had several contractors trying to find the issue with our leaking flat roof prior to getting Steve to look at it. After surveying it with a thermal imaging camera Steve was able to pinpoint the exact location of the leak and fixed it there and then. Very pleased and would definitely recommend to others.
Problems With Asphalt Roofs
Undoubtedly one of the fundamental issues with asphalt flat roofs is their susceptibility to wear and tear due to the massively variable climate conditions that we have in the UK. Asphalt is susceptible to the heating and cooling conditions from the sun. For this reason it is very important that asphalt flat roofs are created with significant care and finished with a final layer that can help to reflect, and lessen the effect, of the suns rays.
This is more often than not done by implementing a layer of stones over the finished flat roof ; this may also be achieved with the application of a final coat of solar reflective paint. This may not be always carried out, encouraging quick wear of the asphalt covering contributing to premature degeneration of the flat roof.
If your asphalt has failed and blisters, cracks or shrinking has occurred then be sure to contact us ASAP as this can quickly turn into water ingress and leaks which ultimately lead to more costly damage.
Asphalt Roof Maintenance
Asphalt roofs are hard-wearing and fairly easy and quick to repair. The most commonly encountered issues seen in asphalt roofing are ; cracks and shrinkage of the asphalt, sagging in unsupported areas and blistering. To repair asphalt roof damage, we implement liquid-based materials, which fill the broken areas and offer long-lasting leak resistance for your property.
