Now, of course, calling a roof “flat” doesn’t usually mean that they are without any slope at all. Most flat roofs are what is known as a low-slope roof, which offers the slightest of slopes to help move water and debris to nearby drains.Yet this slight of slope still leaves more standing water on your roof than a high-sloped roof, as seen on most residential homes. This can lead to pooling water and an increased likelihood for leaks, neither of which are good for property owners.
There are many multi-play roofing solutions on the market for flat roofs, such as BRU (Built Up Roofing), Modified Bitumen, and Silicon Spray. There are definitely benefits to these more traditional solutions, but they can also be heavier or more expensive than the single-ply varieties that are widely used, today. This is why we recommend choosing from one of our single-ply roofing systems, such as TPO, PVC, and EPDM. All three of these solutions are extremely effective and cost-effective, providing supreme protection at a price point that can fit into almost any commercial property owner’s budget.
