Flat Roof Repairs Johannesburg pointers

The extent of my repairs or maintenance are governed  by my  4 main foes :

1 ) Poor original design & construction:    no practical solution when construction was done  cheaply and  hastily.

2 ) Can only be rectified with major repairs :     drain (Weep) pipes too small in diameter.   incorrect sloping of surfaces, causing pooling.

3 )  No or ineffective care or maintenance.

4)  Prolonged exposure to the sun, heavy rains.

5 ) Abuse requires awareness and education.

My Raincoat consists of seamless torch-on bitumen with a special protective paint coating

I have been subjected to abuse , mainly through ignorance. The gardener uses me as a platform to trim the vegetation next to me. Small stones under his shoes puncture my raincoat. He does not clear my weep pipes allowing rainwater onto my porous concrete surface.
