Are you considering investing in a flat roofing system? If so, there are a few things that you should know to help you make the best choice in your roofing system. Like, did you know that flat roofing is not actually flat?

Flat roofing has a very low slope, between ¼ to ½ inch per foot, so as that it drains any water, but holds snow and water much longer than a steeply pitched roof. While standard roofing systems have shingles that overlap, a flat roof is designed as a continuous surface, that can hold some standing water for a limited time.

At East Coast Flat Roofing, we want you to be as educated as possible when making a roofing investment on your industrial or commercial property. This is why our roofing experts have come up with the top three reasons that you should invest in a flat roofing system.

Single-Ply Membrane Roofing

There are several types of membrane roofing materials, including rubber and plastic. Membrane roofing consists of a layer of insulation board topped by sheets (the membrane) of rubber or other material. The best in the business? Duro-Last Roofing Systems.

The custom-fabricated, single-ply, PVC Duro-Last commercial roofing system is ideal for any flat or low-sloped application. Extremely durable and easily installed by East Coast Flat Roofing without disrupting building operations, the Duro-Last Roofing System is also watertight, highly reflective, and resistant to chemicals, fire, and high winds, as well as being low maintenance
