Why Choose a Flat Roof?
If you are trying to give your home a unique, more modern look, a flat roof may be your best option. They are less expensive to install than sloped roofs and the myth that they leak more easily is just that, a myth. There is no need for shingles or other decorative material and a roof that is flat provides more wind resistance than sloped roofs. The most common reason that people choose flat roofs is the look it provides for their home.
Benefits of Flat Roof Construction
When it comes time to clean gutters, flat roofs are very beneficial as you can walk on them with ease. They also make it much easier to perform visual inspections to catch problems before they become major. When there is a problem with this type of roof, flat roof repair is much easier than on a sloped roof. Most flat roofs have a life expectancy of 30 years, longer than other types of roofing. They also hide things like air conditioning vents, exhaust pipes and other items on your roof that may not be visually attractive. Flat roofs are strong enough that you can place heavy equipment like air conditioning units on them to keep them hidden. Flat roofing is also cheaper to install than other types of roofs.
Flat Roof Replacement Options
You have several options when it comes to flat roof materials. A built-up roof is a traditional hot-tar-and-gravel roof that is built from three or more layers of waterproof material. This material is alternated with hot tar and a layer of river stone. The modified bitumen roof is a single-ply rolled roof with a mineral-based wear surface. The material is heated as it is unrolled or newer peel-and-stick options are available. Rubber membrane roofs are made of actual rubber. It resembles an inner tube but resists damage from sunlight. It may be anchored by fasteners, glued or ballasted using stone. All types of flat roof materials have their pros and cons, so be sure to talk to TEMA Roofing about the options that would work best for you.
