What Are Flat Roofs?
A flat roof is one that is totally or nearly completely level. However, while they may be referred to as "flat," nearly all such roofs are really set to a slope so that rainwater can drain to the lower end. Although typically designed with a minimum slope of 1:40, the finished construction usually has a slope of at least 1:80, given inaccuracies on-site.
Because of their low cost, flat roofs are widely used on commercial buildings. In most cases, the money and time required to install or replace a flat roof are less than those associated with "conventional" roofs. And if your flat roof is properly installed, cleaning and upkeep will be considerably less of a hassle. For this reason, hiring professionals with extensive experience in replacing flat roofs is crucial.
Flat Roof Replacement Process
Flat roofs can last longer with regular care and occasional repairs, but eventually, the cost of doing so may outweigh the benefit. Bulldog Builders can deliver a superior flat roof replacement if your current roof is too old or damaged for a successful repair.
