Residential and Commercial Applications
Flat roofs, or “low-slope” roofs, are most often found on commercial buildings but can also be incorporated into residential homes based on their designs or size. Flat roofs in Southwest Florida should last 10 to 20 years.
Keep in mind that flat roofs are not literally flat. They must have at least a slight slope to drain. A low-slope roof has a slope of less than 3-in-12, or 14 degrees.
Steep-slope roofs rely on gravity to cause water to flow in one general direction so it can drain from the roof. A flat roof cannot rely on gravity, so it must have a weatherproof, impermeable membrane that stays watertight all the way to the drains or edge and resists pools of standing water.
In the past, flat roofs have used a built-up roof treatment, also known by the acronym BUR. These roof systems are commonly referred to as “tar and gravel” roofs. They are typically composed of alternating layers of roofing felt (tar paper) and asphalt-based roofing tar that create a waterproof seal.
Today, there are other solutions, including rubber rolled roofing, EPDM rubber, PVC, TPO, bitumen, and modified bitumen roofing, which works well on residential and small-scale commercial flat roofs. Each have their distinct pros and cons and Dickson Roofing can help you choose an appropriate flat roofing material.
You might think that a roof is a roof. However, each roof is unique based on its life expectancy, design, and installation requirements. And there are key differences between residential and commercial roofing. Obviously, all roofs require experienced contractors, quality materials, and expert installation.
