Commercial Flat Roofing
Flat roofing is best for larger buildings where a pitched roof would be costly and more difficult to maintain. It also has the added benefit of creating extra space for large heating and air conditioning units, or could be used as a rooftop garden. Many of the materials used in flat roof installation are highly energy efficient because they reflect light away from the building, reducing the amount of heat absorption.
Maintenance will be required to make sure debris or water does not accumulate and cause problems. It is important that flat roof styles are installed in a way that will allow proper drainage during wet weather.
Flat Roofing Materials
There are a few different ways of installing a flat roof. One popular method is single-ply roofing. This is the use of a single layer of material for waterproofing and weather protection. Materials for single-ply roofing include:
- EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer)
- PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride)
- TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin)
These are popular materials to use for their durability and ease of maintenance and repairs.
Another method of installation is built-up roofing. This method uses materials such as tar, asphalt, or modified bitumen to add several layers to increase the durability of the roof. Since multiple layers of material are used, the roof is much more reliable in protection from weather. Finding leaks, however, can be extremely difficult in built-up roofs.
