Pitched roofs and flat roofs each have their own unique problems and weaknesses:
The main problem with a pitched roof is tile slip after heavy winds, ridge tiles can also become loose and need resetting in mortar
Bitumen felted flat roofs oxidise and crack with the extremes of temperature and eventually small leaks develop

Kirkwall Re-Using Tiles and Slates
By carefully removing the old roof; it's possible to keep most of the roofing materials and save thousands on the cost of a new roof

Kirkwall Heat Pump & Thermostat

Kirkwall Roofs - Flat Roof Repairs

Kirkwall Flat Roof Flashings
When a flat roof is in contact with a building structure, then instead of the roof overlapping the edge of the building; for a water tight seal, it is sealed by connecting it to the adjacent building structure with lead or bitumen flashing: With time this can work loose and allow water to penetrate the edge seal
Kirkwall Bitumen Felt Roofs
Bitumen felt roofs generally last 10 to 20 years before needing removal and replacing
Kirkwall Patching Felt Roofs
Usually, isolated roof areas may blister and crack causing localised leaking that can be patched for a long lasting repair
