Flat Roofs

Flat roofs have some inherent problems and challenges. For instance, drainage is probably the biggest potential problem with flat roofs since they don’t have any slopes. A drainage problem can also lead to leakage and molding. We use watertight seals to counter this problem. Plastic or rubber can be used to provide a leak-proof flat roof. Another brilliant way to avoid this problem is to use a pitched roof along with the flat sections.

Some people are even discouraged to not get a flat roof for their house due to misinformation. While these challenges exist, we must assert that the key is to use the right materials, procedures, and methods for building a flat roof, or any kind of roof for that matter.

Metal Roofing

Properly installed, a metal roof should last as long as the building, sealing out water, surviving high winds, and easily shedding snow. Metal is resistant to fire, mildew, insects, and rot. Warranties vary widely, but most companies back their products for 20 to 50 years. Paint finishes typically have a 30-year limited warranty.

Composite Roofing

Composite roof shingles, also known as synthetic shingles, consist of a mixture of materials chosen specifically for their durability, reduced weight, resistance to damage, and improved insulating abilities. Fiberglass, asphalt, plastic, polyester, and recycled paper products are often part of the blend, with resin or laminates holding the various materials together.

Composite shingles can also be formed to replicate a range of styles, such as tab shingles, tile, shake, or stone products. Composite shingles are available in a range of colors and don’t crack, warp, split, or peel, making them a practical and appealing choice.

Built up Roofing

Through the years, there have been many roofing materials used for commercial buildings. Although there are newer materials on the market today, many contractors and business owners still prefer built-up roofing (BUR).

Many contractors and business owners have been using BURs because of their proven reliability. Built-up roofs installed 40 years ago still stand strong today. Here are other benefits of using BUR for your businesses:

  • Protection – This type of flat roofing comes in multiple layers of bitumen and saturated felts. These create a water-resistant barrier that ensures protection against the elements for years.
  • Energy efficiency – This roofing material comes with special coatings with high reflectivity values. This helps maintain a consistent building temperature throughout. This way, you can save more energy by using heating and cooling systems less often.
  • Durability – Built-up roofing has high resistance against fire and strong winds.
