Flat Roof Benefits and Drawbacks
Flat roofs are a popular choice for commercial roofs, and there are various reasons for this. For one thing, as previously mentioned, flat roofs are an affordable option in comparison with many other roof types. Flat roofs are also easier to access, making it easier for tasks like cleaning gutters, installing solar panels and performing roof inspections and repairs to be performed. Having a flat roof also essentially gives a building owner an extra floor of space to use, where storage facilities, satellite dishes and more can be placed and easily accessed.
Along with those flat roof benefits come some drawbacks. For instance, flat roofs do not drain as efficiently as pitched roofs, which means water can remain on the roof after a storm much longer than is healthy for the roof. When standing water stays on a flat roof, this can lead to the accelerated breakdown of roofing materials and eventuate in the development of leaks.
Many things can lead to problems on a flat roof, including:
- Storm damage
- Ponding water
- Building movement
- Loose membrane bonds
- UV damage
- Straight-line winds
- Improper previous repairs
Whatever the cause of your roofing problems may be, only a properly licensed expert should ever attend to them. For professional roofing service you can count on, look to the team at Kool Kote Roofing!
