What to Do When My Flat Roof Is Damaged by Extreme Weather

Storms occur often in the UK, with storm damages affecting many flat roof owners each year. Strong winds and rain can lead to water entering your property through the flat roofing.

You may be concerned about the cost and hassle of having your flat roofing repaired following damage caused by high wind speeds or other weather-related damage. If the damage isn’t going to be worsened by more extreme weather, it’ll have to be repaired right away.

If your flat roof happens to get damaged by bad weather, the team here at Alvadac have composed a guide on what to do and how to resolve any knock-on issues of the water damage.

Roof Maintenance

Roof maintenance is critical for a variety of reasons. It not only strengthens the roof against severe weather but also increases the likelihood of your insurer paying out if you are a victim of storm damage. It also implies that when harm does occur, it is almost always unavoidable. A well-maintained roof will last longer and save you money in the long run.


Your building insurance provider is likely to refuse to pay out if they believe your flat roof was already in poor condition before the bad weather came. Therefore, it’s a good idea to undergo a flat roof inspection to check the condition of your roof every summer to prepare for the harsh weather conditions and temperatures that come later in the year. Building insurance policies often cover any financial loss caused by storm damage.

Repair with or Install EPDM Roofing

Regardless of whether your flat roof has been damaged by extreme weather such as violent winds or not, you should definitely consider having EPDM rubber roofing installed on your roof by a professional roofer to avoid any risk of stormy weather damage.

EPDM is an extremely durable single-ply synthetic rubber membrane that is used in flat-roofed, low-slope buildings. It has two main ingredients: ethylene and propylene, which are derived from natural gas and oil.

Why Install EPDM Roofing?

EPDM roofing is extremely durable and is a lot more resistant to hard-wearing and damage than many other roofing materials on the market. This roofing material is also very low-maintenance as it requires little attention or care. Not to mention, this type of high-tech membrane roofing is long-lasting, with its incredible durability giving it an average life span of 30 years or longer. Best of all, EPDM is completely water and weather-proof, which enhances the waterproof properties of the roofing and prevents the risk of water damage and clogged drains.
