Benefits of Flat Roofing vs. Normal Roofing

Cost-Effective Installation

Flat roofing is generally easier and less expensive to install than pitched roofs. It requires fewer materials and less labor, making it a cost-effective option, especially for large commercial buildings. Our costs vary depending on square footage and the material that you decide to use. If price is at the top of your mind, definitely consider flat roofing with us.

Easy Access

Flat roofs provide easy access for maintenance and repairs. This can be particularly advantageous for commercial buildings with rooftop equipment, such as HVAC units and solar panels, as well as for homeowners who want to create rooftop gardens or outdoor living spaces.

Flat roofs can be used as additional living or recreational space, such as a rooftop garden, patio, or even an outdoor kitchen. This can be a valuable extension of living space and increase the property's value.

Energy Efficiency

Flat roofing can be designed to support green roofing systems, like garden roofs or cool roofing materials, which can help improve energy efficiency. Green roofs, for example, provide additional insulation and reduce heat absorption, lowering cooling costs. Flat roofs are often chosen for solar panel installations because they provide a large, unobstructed area for the placement of solar arrays. This maximizes energy production.

Outstanding service and high quality work from start to finish, TRULY the best in the business. Highly recommend using this company for any exterior home improvements!!

How Long Do Flat Roofs Last?

Flat roofs are constructed using various materials, including built-up roofing (BUR), modified bitumen, EPDM rubber, TPO, or PVC. On average, the typical lifespan of a flat roof falls within the range of 10 to 30 years. However, the actual longevity of a flat roof depends on several factors, such as the quality of installation and the level of regular maintenance it receives.

Proper installation techniques, along with vigilant upkeep, can significantly extend the lifespan of a flat roof, ensuring it remains in good condition and provides reliable protection to the building it covers.

These preventive measures are especially important for flat roofs, as they are more vulnerable to water pooling, which can accelerate wear and tear if not managed effectively. These are all things that Herman Exterior Home prides ourselves on, to deliver you the best flat roof in the area.
