The signs depend on the type of membrane. In general, you will notice a deterioration in the quality of the coating such as cracks or defects.
Condensation and moisture can lead to mold, blackened plywood, smears on joists, tarnished or compacted insulation wool.
Signs of moisture or condensation may be caused by a mechanical problem in the building, such as poorly connected outlet pipes.

What are the signs of a flat roof leak?
Signs of leaks depend on the type of cladding:
- For an elastomeric membrane: check for wrinkles, cracked or deteriorated joints and other defects.
- For an asphalt and gravel coating: common signs of infiltration include bubbles and cracks in the coating.
These clues are more difficult to spot in winter. If in doubt, you should call in specialists to detect and treat a leak early on.
