Flat Roof Inspections for Residential or Commercial Dwellings
In most instances, insurance firms will ask for flat roofs to be checked. This is a result of their high failure rates.
A leak is a failure. The exterior problem may not be anywhere close to the point the leak becomes visible inside the building. Often water can sit among layers of flat roof components for several months before actually escaping into the building. This means that a roof could be failing way before you notice any damp or water ingress inside of the building. We suggest getting your flat roof looked regularly to avoid costly repairs.

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.

Why You Should Have a Flat Roof Inspection
Flat roofs lead to an increasing risk for insurers as opposed to pitched and tiled rooftops. Aided by the possibility of the load of rainwater or compacted snow to build up on flat roofs. Many insurance companies are unable to handle this risk and with the UK’s record busting snowfall annually, far less insurers are set to be taking on the risk.
How Long is an Inspection Valid For?
It has become normal practice for insurance firms to require an investigation of your roof prior to when they’ll issue you with homeowners insurance. These reports are generally valid for a number of years (subject to the insurance company), therefore once you have the report, you should be able to make use of it for upwards of 12 months.
