We are specialists in asphalt roofing in Wavertree and can also provide repairs if the current one is damaged. A flat roof must have a slight slope of around 10 degrees to allow water to drain off it. If the slope if too shallow, the water can form in pools and may collect in the corners of the roof. This can cause gradual seepage which will start in the corners of the room or along the beams and timber framework. The only way to stop the leak is for us to waterproof the roof with asphalt. This liquid can be carefully painted onto the edges and into the corners of the roof.
