Flat roofing is a type of roofing that has a very low pitch, often less than 10 degrees. These roofs are typically covered with a waterproof membrane, such as modified bitumen, EPDM, or TPO.
They are commonly used on commercial buildings, such as warehouses, factories, and office buildings. However, flat roofs are also found on some residential buildings, such as apartment complexes and modern-style homes.
One benefit of flat roofing is that it can provide additional outdoor space. A flat roof can be transformed into a rooftop patio, garden, or even a green roof. This can add value to a property and provide a pleasant outdoor space for building occupants to enjoy.
In addition, flat roofs are often easier and less expensive to install than sloped roofs, as they require less material and labor. Flat roofs can also be easier to access for maintenance and repairs, as they do not have the steep slope of a pitched roof.
However, flat roofs require regular maintenance to prevent leaks and other issues.
