Contrary to its name, flat roofing design incorporates a slight slope to accommodate rainwater, snow and melting ice. Flat roofing is ideal for use on commercial properties as it offers the convenience of installing outdoor HVAC units on a commercial buildings roof. Flat roofing is also suitable for use on a residential building, especially for home additions such as new rooms, as it blends nicely into the houses existing roof terrain. To avoid any type of moisture from entering a commercial or residential building, flat roofing systems are seamless and unlayered, and most commonly manufactured from the following materials for extra moisture barrier protection:
- PVC single ply membrane (lifespan of 15-30 years)
- PVC TOP (lifespan of 7-20 years)
- BUR (lifespan of 15-20 years)
- EPDM (lifespan of 10-15 years)
- Modified bitumen (lifespan of 10-20 years)
