Standing Water
Although it may sound strange, flat roofs will always have a slight incline built into their design.
If this slope isn’t sufficient or the drainage has become blocked, pooling of rainwater can occur causing the roof to sag in places. Without maintenance this will cause damage to the roof membrane and leaks.
This can be prevented by clearing any debris from your drainage or you can talk to us about looking at increasing the gradient of your flat roofing.

Blistering
If moisture becomes trapped between your roof and the membrane leading to blistering. It’s more likely to happen in hotter environments because the moisture has more chance to expand.
