This is the time of year (in the Northern latitudes) when condensation can become a problem. We are all encouraged to install bigger and better insulation to keep our homes and offices warm without spending a fortune on higher energy bills.
However, with every silver lining, there is usually a cloud on the horizon.
As you cram more and thicker mineral wool into the loft
the inside of your roof slopes start to run with condensation.
This is where moist air comes into contact with air, or a surface,
which is at a lower temperature because warm air holds
more moisture than cold air.
In severe cases, it can even appear to “rain” in the roof space!
Your Flat roof can be very unforgiving when problems arise, they usually require urgent attention

Flat Roof repairs regularly carried out by Mayfield Roofing include bonding felt in hot bitumen, and replacing or over-laying with Rubber Roofing.
There are two types of Rubber Roofing for Flat Roofs.
The most common and most cost effective is the single sheet EPDM system made by ClassicBond and Firestone and other American companies. These are effectively, a large rubber sheet, held down with very strong adhesives. There are a few variations of the theme, with fleece backing or other novelties but they are all the same basic system.
By far the best Rubber Roof System is the German engineered Resitrix System. This is more than twice as thick as the basic systems and it is Hot Air Welded at the details. Coupled with its non-slip surface, Resitrix is the Rolls Royce system for your flat roof
