Commercial Flat Roofing:
Commercial Flat Roofing
Flat roofs are one of the most common types of roofs for commercial buildings throughout Illinois. Commercial flat roofs are typically more cost effective than pitched roofs or steep sloped roofs. They often times require less material due to the fewer square feet and make it safer for building maintenance people and local roofing contractors to operate on.
There are many flat roofing materials to choose from, some include rubber rolled roofing, PVC, EPDM, TPO, bitumen, modified bitumen and more. You can also choose from many different colors, even though white is the most common due to reflectiveness of heat.
With a flat roof, items such as air conditioning units, solar panels and satellite dishes are much easier to install and also offers your building better curb appeal by being hidden on the roof versus sticking out from the side of the building or on the floor.
However, the most important factor for flat roofs is drainage. Poor roof drainage systems can cause standing water that can break down roofing materials, build up mold and eventually cause a roof leak.
It is vital to work with an experienced commercial roofing contractor with a good reputation for quality commercial roofing services.
