Flat Roof Reports for Residential or Commercial Dwellings
In most instances, insurance firms will ask for flat flat roof floors to be checked. This is as a result of their high failure rates.
With the chance of the weight of rain or compacted snow to build up on flat roofs to a point that simply wouldn’t take place with a standard rooftop, a number of typical insurance providers are not able to cover this risk and along with the UK’s record breaking snowfall annually, less and less insurance companies are set to be agreeing to the risk.

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 Flat Roofs and Insurance
The exterior problem may not be anywhere close to the place the leak becomes visible inside your dwelling. Frequently water can sit among layers of flat roof materials for a number of months before actually getting into the house.
Flat Roofs Often Fail With Water Ingress
To make matters worse, water doesn’t generally come through the ceiling on a great sunny day when you’re in a good mood to handle it either! Problems usually become apparent whenever heavy rainfall compounds an already existing problem. So it’s safer to spend a short time up a ladder now, on the lookout for those tell-tale signs of a leak, rather than dealing with them on dark damp night in the depths of winter.
