Spring in Miami is the optimal time to complete some tasks that will help keep your flat roof in good condition. During the winter months, your flat roof can take a beating. Setting priorities for repairing the damage (and preventing future problems) should be at the top of your “to-do” list this season.

Surveying the Damage

Flat roofs need to be maintained to perform properly. Whether you notice signs of roof damage (water spots on the ceiling or walls; leaks; obviously lifted or damaged roofing), or just want to have the roof inspected, it’s important to work with a professional. An experienced roofer can help you determine the severity of the problems and the order in which they need to be tackled.

It won’t always be the lowest-cost items that need to be fixed first. Larger, more expensive problems can result in even greater damage if left unattended. A professional Miami roofer can help you determine the best route for repairing your flat roof and offer a preventative maintenance plan, as well.

Ranking Flat Roof Repairs by Importance

Whenever a leak is present, it’s important to have it attended to immediately. Even small leaks can cause lots of damage. No matter the season, any leaks should be considered a very high, or even emergency, priority.

Obvious damage should also be considered a high priority. Following high winds or other rough weather, it’s important to have your flat roof inspected for areas of obvious damage. Some damage that might occur during storms includes:

  • Lifted areas
  • Tears or gouges
  • Blunt impact damage from falling or flying debris
  • Clogged drainage systems
  • Damaged insulation


An annual inspection should also be part of your overall maintenance plan. A thorough inspection can catch problems early and save enormous amounts in repair costs over the long term.

Medium- and low-priority tasks can be discussed with your roofer. These types of tasks can be undertaken as part of a comprehensive maintenance schedule. A professional roofer will be able to help you prioritize flat roof repairs to keep your flat roof in its best possible condition.
