Frequently Asked Flat Roofing Questions

What Is Flat Roofing?

A flat or low-slope roof is often needed for areas of a residential roof that have little or no incline, thus causing water to drain much more slowly. For this reason, it’s important to install a roofing material that is engineered to provide the weatherproofing these vulnerable areas of your roof require. Our flat roofing systems are perfect for porch overhangs, home additions, or any other area of the home with a low slope.

How Long Does a Flat Roof Last?

The lifespan of a flat roof depends on various factors, including the material used, installation quality, maintenance, and local climate conditions. On average, a well-installed and properly maintained flat roof can last between 15 and 30 years. However, some materials, such as metal or certain single-ply membranes, can have longer lifespans.

Are Flat Roofs Prone to Leaks?

Flat roofs can be more susceptible to leaks than pitched roofs due to their low slope, which can result in water pooling and increased exposure to the elements. However, with proper installation, regular inspections, and timely maintenance, flat roofs can be just as watertight as pitched roofs.

How Can I Maintain My Flat Roof?

Regular maintenance is crucial for the longevity and performance of a flat roof. Here are some maintenance tips:

  • Keep the roof clean and clear of debris.
  • Inspect the roof regularly for signs of damage, such as cracks, blisters, or membrane deterioration.
  • Clear away standing water promptly to prevent pooling.
  • Trim overhanging branches to prevent damage from falling debris.
  • Ensure proper drainage by keeping gutters and downspouts clean and functioning effectively.
  • Schedule professional roof inspections and maintenance at least once a year.
