Flat roofs are expected to, and usually do, last a very long time. They are designed to last, but are also designed with the expectation they will receive semi-annual or annual inspections and routine maintenance as needed. On the rare occasion a repair is needed, the basic layout of a flat roof demands it be conducted immediately before it causes more problems and more expensive repairs.
In short, yes it does. You should
have your roof inspected at least once a year to make sure it is clear of debris. Debris, such as leaves, trash, and built up dirt can cause water drainage issues! With a flat roof the build up of all of these things will happen over time and this can cause serious problems for your roof. So make sure your roof is clean and clear.
Having your roof inspected can also assure you that there are no issues arising with your system. Catching any issues before they get to he interior of your building can save you thousands! When small issues are found during routine inspections you can have them repaired at a fraction of the cost of real roof and interior damage. You always want to catch problems early!
