An increasingly popular choice for residential roofing, flat roofs provide a host of benefits provided they are designed and maintained properly. Flat residential roofs have special maintenance requirements that need to be met to ensure the roof performs properly.
Here’s how you can make the most of your flat roof:
Use the Space
Your flat roof can function as an additional living space. You can create a rooftop deck or garden for lounging outside or entertaining guests. A flat roof also provides additional space for other things like your HVAC system.
It’s important that you or your roofing contractors clean the flat roof frequently. Without regular cleaning, flat roofs collect debris such as leaves, sticks and dirt that aren’t shed as easily as they would be on a sloped roof. Fortunately, flat roof cleaning is easier than with other roofing types.
A high-quality flat roof can provide excellent energy efficiency for your home. Flat roofing materials like rubber membranes or built-up roofs (BUR) help insulate your home from the heat. You can also install solar panels to give your home an energy boost.
