Flat Roof Replacement
There are actually five different types of flat roofs that you might have on your home. These roofs often aren’t truly flat, but have a very low pitch to them. So what type of flat roof replacement is right for you? It depends on your budget, your location, the design of your home, and a number of other factors.
For example, a built-up roof tends to be very heavy, so your home may have to have extra support joists installed. A rubber membrane or EPDM roof, on the other hand, is lighter in weight, but also is costlier and can damaged more easily.
Flat Roof Repair
Repairing flat roofs first requires that you have a contractor who understands how to evaluate one of these roofs for damage. Our team has been trained to examine every part of the roof and to look at the small details. These little details often tell us a lot and help determine where you need flat roof repair done.
Any area on the roof where leaves, small limbs, and other debris has collected might be a place where water hasn’t run off correctly. That’s one area we would closely examine to make sure no water damage has taken place.
Flat Roof Replacement Cost
Overall, the cost of flat roofs isn’t any more or less than other types of roofs if you have damage repaired quickly and have the roof maintained properly. Yes, flat roofs do have to be replaced a little more often than sloped roofs, but they can still last for 30 years.
It all depends on if you’re hit by severe weather multiple times in a year and how quickly you have your roof repaired after storms. Even the best sloped shingle roof will deteriorate if it’s not repaired and maintained.
