Whether your building is a residential highrise or commercial shopping center, flat roofs have their purpose in many properties. However, flat roofs are not without their challenges. Water ponding which leads to leaks and rust is often due to poor installation. At KTM Exteriors, we have developed a proven flat roofing system which has become increasingly popular for both new homes and commercial property.
Although flat roofs have their own set of unique challenges and needs, KTM Exteriors are flat roofing specialists. If you are planning to have a flat roof on a building or residence, we can help you to make informed decisions.
Flat roofing is cost-effective for both new roof installs and regular roof maintenance. The materials used for flat roofs are becoming ever more affordable. Besides the cost of installation, maintenance costs of flat roofs are also generally lower compared to a traditional pitched roof. Flat roofs can also minimize the costs for extensions, which is great if you are planning to add additional rooms to your home or property.
Useable Roof Space
Flat roofs give the option to use the roof space for other purposes such as creating an outdoor living space on the roof. A flat roof contractor will also find it much easier to install solar panels, which are typically more difficult to install in a sloped roof. Air conditioning units can also be installed out of sight on a flat roof instead of taking up space on the ground. From rooftop decks and gardens to skylights and satellite dishes, a flat roof can open up space for lots of new opportunities.
Accessibility & Maintenance
Climbing a sloped roof is not only daunting but can also be hazardous, even for some professional roofing installers. Unlike pitched roofs, flat roof repairs and replacements are generally easier to carry out due to the increased accessibility. Maintenance is also a key advantage of a flat roof. The ease of access makes it easier to inspect gutters and clear debris.
Easy Repair And Maintenance
Maintenance is a key factor to consider when it comes to long-term investments such as roof solutions. Fortunately, the ease of access that comes with flat roofs makes it easy and seamless for your roof inspector to check the gutters and clear any debris.
A modern-day flat roof has advanced coatings that are highly durable even in areas that experience extreme weather conditions. These materials, including EPDM, constitute rubber roofing materials that are friendly to the environment. Besides being extremely waterproof, flat rubber roofing is well known for being resistant to fire and wind damage. A flat roof made from these specialized rubber materials has a lifespan of about 20-30 years.
Flat roofing can also be constructed using modified bitumen. This material, which has been a reputable roofing material since the 1960s, comprises polymer reinforced sheets that make it durable and long-lasting.
KTM Exteriors chooses to use either GRP fiberglass, polycarbonate roofing, or polyurethane liquid in conjunction with EPDM to guarantee an increased lifespan of your flat roof. By engaging our experience in flat roofing systems, you are investing in a quality roofing service which will reduce the need for maintenance needs.
