Advantages of Flat Roofs for Commercial Buildings

As the owner or manager of a commercial property, you are probably aware of the many different roofing options available. You may have also noticed that flat roof systems seem to be the most common. Flat roof systems offer many advantages to your property. Discover some of these advantages as well as how to receive quality repair services for your commercial roof today.

Affordable Protection

Many of the materials used in flat roof design, such as EPDM rubber, TPO, and bitumen, are excellent investments. Other than offering affordable options, most flat roof materials last far longer than other, more traditional roofing systems, saving you money on repairs and replacements.

A properly designed commercial roof protects your building and provides an energy-efficient roofline. As long as your flat roof is properly insulated, you’ll enjoy the same or better insulation value of a traditional sloped roof. Even moisture and snow buildup are protected on a flat roof thanks to durable rubber or plastic materials.

Additional Storage Space

A flat roof creates additional space for your HVAC systems. Place air conditioning condensers and other components on your roof instead of taking up space on the ground and reducing your curb appeal. Placing these HVAC systems on your roof still permits easy access for maintenance and replacement, but allows you to tailor your landscaping on all sides of your property, increasing your curb appeal.

Height Restrictions

The height of a building can often be restricted by certain city codes. If the height of your building is limited, wouldn’t you want to get the most out of the space? Sloped roofs create an awkward, usually unusable, top floor due to the slanted interior walls. With a flat roof, you can use the entire top floor, giving you more square footage to work with.
