While flat roofing for residential structures is not very common, many commercial buildings do have flat roofs. If you have a building with a flat roof, it is important to understand some of the differences in the types of roofing that are available and how to maintain them. It is also good to know that there are some benefits you can get from flat roofing that you may not get from a pitched roof. Just some of those desirable benefits are:
- Options – Many owners are drawn to flat roofing because of the many options that are available to them to utilize that space. Flat roofs can be used for gardens, a place to enjoy and relax, and a location for solar panels and/or AC units. The options for how you would like to utilize your roof space are just about endless.
- Cost – Owners love to save money and flat roofing is typically less expensive than other options. And, with the added usable square footage, you are really saving money. Flat roofing also requires fewer building materials compared to a pitched roof, which also helps to save you money.
- Fast Installation – Flat roofing is faster to construct than a pitched roof. There are fewer materials to install, and the process is easier than dealing with a difficult and more hazardous pitched roof.
