Flat Roof Replacement for Calgary Homes and Businesses
Over the years, flat roofs have gained significant popularity in Calgary, especially because of their suitability for the local climate and architectural preferences. The design and structure of flat roofs make them an attractive choice for both residential and commercial buildings in this region. However, over time, even the most durable flat roofs may require replacement to ensure optimal performance and maintain the integrity of the structure. That’s why at DiamondCut Roofing, we offer expert flat roof replacement services to homeowners and businesses in Calgary.
Signs That You Need to Replace Your Flat Roof
A roof replacement is usually the last thing on a property owner’s mind. Most people assume that their roofs last forever. However, for the past 10 years that we have been offering both commercial and residential roofing solutions in Calgary, we have identified the following signs that indicate the need for a new roof;
1. Persistent Leaks and Water Damage
Leaks that persistently occur, causing water damage to your ceiling or walls, are a clear indicator that your flat roof may need replacement. Water infiltration can lead to structural damage and mold growth, compromising the safety and health of occupants.
2. Widespread Blisters and Bubbling
If you notice numerous blisters or bubbles on the surface of your flat roof, it’s a sign that moisture has become trapped within the layers. Over time, this can weaken the roof’s structure, necessitating replacement.
3. Extensive Cracks and Splits
Cracks and splits in the roofing material can develop due to aging, temperature fluctuations, or wear and tear. When these cracks become extensive and compromise the roof’s integrity, it’s time to consider a replacement.
4. Ponding Water
Flat roofs should effectively drain water to prevent ponding or pooling. If you notice areas where water consistently accumulates and doesn’t drain properly, it could be a sign that your roof has lost its proper slope and needs replacement.
5. Visible Damage and Deterioration
Obvious signs of wear and tear, such as crumbling, peeling, or disintegrating roofing materials, suggest that the roof has reached the end of its lifespan. A thorough inspection by a roofing professional can determine if replacement is necessary.
6. Sagging or Uneven Roof Surface
A flat roof that appears uneven or is visibly sagging in certain areas may indicate structural problems. This can be a result of weakened support or a compromised roof deck, requiring a replacement to ensure the roof’s stability and safety.

When should I consider replacing my flat roof?
Flat roofs should typically be replaced every 20 to 30 years, depending on the roofing material used and the quality of the installation. Signs that may indicate the need for a replacement include persistent leaks, extensive damage, visible wear and tear, or if your current roofing system is reaching the end of its expected lifespan.
What types of materials are commonly used for flat roof replacements?
The common materials we use for flat roof replacements include:
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer): A durable and affordable synthetic rubber roofing membrane.
- TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin): A reflective and energy-efficient single-ply roofing membrane.
- PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): A highly durable and long-lasting single-ply membrane known for its chemical resistance.
- Built-up Roofing (BUR): Multiple layers of tar and gravel or asphalt rolled on to create a waterproof surface.
- Modified Bitumen: An asphalt-based roofing material that is strong and flexible.
How long does a flat roof replacement project typically take?
The duration of a flat roof replacement project varies based on several factors, including the size and complexity of the roof, the type of roofing material being used, and the weather conditions. The duration for a roof replacement can take a few days or weeks. But don’t worry, after inspection, we will give you a timeline.
Are there any benefits to upgrading to a new flat roof?
Absolutely! A new flat roof can bring several benefits, including improved energy efficiency, enhanced waterproofing, increased property value, reduced maintenance costs, and better resistance to extreme weather conditions. Additionally, modern roofing materials offer superior durability and longevity compared to older roofing systems.
How can I choose the right roofing contractor for my flat roof replacement?
Selecting the right roofing contractor is crucial. Look for contractors with a good reputation, proper licensing and insurance, extensive experience in flat roof replacements, transparent pricing and contracts, and a solid warranty on their work.
