Top Flat Roofing related questions
No, you don’t have to provide any tools or equipment for this. Your hired flat roof specialist has all the right tools and equipment necessary for the job, along with the requisite skills and years of experience. What you can provide are all the materials for your flat roof, whether it’s for its installation, replacement or maintenance.
That depends on the type of roof, the type of service and the complexity of the task. Should flat roof leak repairs involve filling a few holes in a localised area, this may take a couple of hours. Should there be wholesale damage on the material, such as felt, flat roof felt repair might take an entire day, more due to inclement weather. Flat roof replacement or maintenance can vary, from a few hours to a few days.
Yes! Should you offer flat roofing services for most types of flat roofs, and whether it’s to maintain, install, replace or repair a flat roof, you can definitely hire a Tasker to help. Make a post on our platform with all the crucial details to attract the most suitable Taskers for the job. You can hire a Tasker for almost any job, from flat roofing services to plumbing, or even managing trees in your property.
That depends on the type of roof you have and the kind of weather that’s prevalent in your area. The common practice is to have your flat roof inspected at least three times a year. But should your area experience temperature extremes such as heavy rain, snowfall or high heat, have your flat roof inspected in the aftermath of such events.
In some cases, yes. You can do simple maintenance on your flat roof if the damage is minor and the materials are not elaborate, such as in single-ply membrane roofing. Should there be a few small holes, these can be patched up with roof cement. If layers of membrane have worn away or become raised, you can cut them out and patch them yourself. We recommend you hire a flat roof specialist on Airtasker for more complex maintenance jobs.
When installing a new or replacement flat roof, you can choose from the most common types, such as rubber membrane roofing, built-up roofing or modified bitumen roofing. The most favoured type is rubber membrane roofing, as this is the most cost-efficient among them. Rubber membrane roofing is very durable, resists sun damage, resists tearing and scuffing, and is easy to install and repair.
What do flat roofing services include?
Flat roofing includes all the tasks necessary to install, maintain, fix or restore your property’s flat roof. This service typically includes the following procedures: inspecting the roof and preparing the required materials and tools, installing the flat roof, removing an existing roof and underlying roof support structure, putting on a replacement roof and performing necessary repairs or maintenance.
Inspecting and preparing the roof
Your flat roof specialist begins the service by going up on your roof and making a thorough visual inspection. They can recommend the best type of flat roof that fits your needs and budget that conforms with your state’s building code. Your flat roof specialist can determine the right materials and what amount to use. They can also do a thorough cleaning of the roof to prepare it for any adhesives if the type of roofing material calls for it.
Before installation, some flat roof specialists can recommend trimming overgrown tree limbs that may get in the way with work on the flat roof, but this can cost extra. If your flat roof specialist finds overgrown tree branches, consider hiring a tree surgeon before work begins on your flat roof.
Installing a flat roof
Once your roof specialist has taken the needed measurements, cleaned the roof surfaces and the materials are ready, they can proceed with the installation. If you don’t have all the materials yet, some specialists can buy these for you as long as material costs are covered. Your flat roof specialist can install built-up roofing, modified bitumen roofing, membrane roofing or other common types of flat roofing.
They can use the appropriate tools and techniques to ensure that the installation is done right and your roof is as durable as expected and does not leak or come apart. After your flat roof is installed, why not hire an expert to install the electrical wiring for the lighting and electrical outlets?
Flat roof replacement
Should you have an existing roof and want to renovate or change your roof, your hired flat roof specialist can replace it with a flat roof type of your choice. They can remove the old roof and whatever parts that need changing to accommodate the replacement flat roof. Some specialists can make modifications for mounting the replacement roof, but this can cost extra. If you need a new roof mounting structure or other changes, consider hiring a carpenter.
Flat roof repairs and maintenance
Your hired flat roof specialist can perform maintenance or repairs on your flat roof as necessary. They can patch up or repair holes, replace worn portions of felt, re-apply adhesive as appropriate and perform all the required flat roof maintenance with the right materials and tools.
