While flat roofs are mostly seen on commercial or business buildings, you may have seen these roofs making a statement on modern-style homes. Here in Florida, flat roofs work extremely well to combat intense heat and high winds. And their water-proofing systems allow them to hold water for an extended period of time. Plus, flat roofs use fewer materials and are sometimes stronger than pitched roofs.
Flat roofs are cheaper and quicker to install than their sloped counterparts. They’re also safer to inspect, clean, and maintain–for you and your roofing contractor. Flat roofs can also be an innovative use of space. Turn your flat roof into a garden or extra living area for lounging or BBQ-ing! Plus, flat roofs also make your indoor space more livable. Think about it–no more awkward sloped walls throwing off the flow of your attic or upstairs bedroom.
