WHAT IS IT FLAT ROOFING?
Flat roofing is an intricate and popular form of roofing that we specialize in. Did you know that flat roofing isn't even flat? It has a very low slope between 1/4 to 1/2 inch per foot, allowing the roof to drain water while maintaining a low and modern profile.
This low slope allows water to hold for a longer period of time ad therefore needs a special kind of material to keep it water tight.
Many flat roof designs feature overlapping shingles over continuous, monolithic surfaces.
There are three popular choices for flat roofing materials.
TYPES OF FLAT ROOFING
Membrane roofing (or EPDM) is a rubber roofing solution that is durable, water proof, and lightweight. It is engineered to resist sun damage and is an exceptionally versatile material to work with. Cheap and simple to maintain, this material will help you save on costs and on repairs!
BUILT-UP ROOFING (BUR)
Built Up Roofing employs traditional hot-tar-and-gravel material to your roof. It consists of layers that help keep the roof protected and sturdy. The bottom layer (or two) consists of insulation board and multiple layers of tar/asphalt and roofing felt that alternate. The top layer consists of gravel, creating a thick, tough, and seamless roof.
MODIFIED BITUMEN ROOFING
Developed in the 1960's, Modified Bitumen Roofing became a lighter alternative to Built Up Roofing. It is a flexible asphalt based material with a mineral top that is also less smelly, messy, and hot compared to Built Up Roofing. The conventional installation method is known as "Torch-Down".

FLAT ROOFING IN WINTER
Flat roofs are less prone to snow and ice accumulation. Unlike sloped roofs, flat roofs do not have a steep pitch that can cause snow and ice to slide off. This can be beneficial in areas with heavy snowfall, as it can help to prevent damage from heavy snow loads and ice dams. Additionally, flat roofs are generally easier to clear of snow and ice, making it easier for building owners to maintain their buildings during the winter months.
