Flat Roofing

p21
Homes that are built with flat roofs have special roofing requirements. They are unable to be roofed using shingles because shingles are not waterproof and would allow water to collect, causing damage to the shingles themselves, as well as the building’s structure. There are a variety of flat roofing options that are available to property owners, including metal roofing, rubber roofing, and built up roofing. As professional roofers we are able to advise you on the best answer for your flat roofing application, providing you with exactly the look you are seeking as well as the protection that is needed to insure you are protecting your investment.

Flat Roofs have Special Requirements

Flat roofs are extremely common in residential buildings and they offer some very specific advantages, including ease of access and maintenance, but they also have very specific needs. Rain and snow can easily buildup on a roof that has no slope or peak, and this can cause leaks as well as speed the breakdown of roofing material. Property owners who have flat roofs are advised to have their roofs inspected once a year to make sure that small problems that can easily be repaired don’t become big problems requiring replacement.

Flat Roofing Options

Depending upon your application and specific needs, buildings with flat roofs can take advantage of a number of different roofing options, including built-up roofing that adds layers, single ply roofs made of rubber, or metal roofing. Metal roofing is becoming more and more popular because it is environmentally friendly, energy efficient and lasts a long, long time, where rubber roofing can be installed in a single roll, making it economical and providing quick installation. Built up roofs offer the advantage of being flame retardant and inexpensive but can have a negative impact on your building’s structural integrity. Our years of experience and extensive knowledge guarantee that you’ll get the right answer for your flat roofing needs.
