It’s not easy to decide what type of flat roof is best for your building. Some flat roofing treatments are equally suitable for new construction or re-roofing applications, while others are not. Some flat roofing materials offer advantages in large-scale commercial projects, but cause problems on smaller residential roofs. Energy performance, maintenance requirements and installation costs are other factors when choosing a flat roofing material.

Global Home Improvement offers flat roof installations for residential customers. We have an experienced team of roofers who can help you select the right type of roof for your home, or evaluate your existing flat roof to suggest the proper services.

Hire a roofing contractor with installation expertise

Even the best roofing material available can fail if it’s not properly installed. That’s why it’s important to hire a roofing contractor with the resources to complete a quality roofing installation. These resources include a courteous, well-trained crew; proper equipment and tools to do the job; and experience with the roofing material you wish to install. 

Flat roofing information and materials

The materials that cover low-pitch or flat roofs compose what’s called the “membrane” of a roof. The main purpose of the membrane is waterproofing the home. Roof design and shape is also key to keeping a building’s structure watertight. On flat roofs, for example, water generally expels off the sides or into a system of gutters.

On some buildings, such as garden sheds, water may flow freely off the edge of the roof, though gutter systems have the advantage of keeping both walls and foundations dry. Gutters on smaller roofs often lead water directly to the ground, or better, into a soakaway. Gutters on larger roofs usually lead water into the rainwater drainage system. Occasionally, flat roof designs allow water to collect in a pool, usually for aesthetic purposes or for rainwater buffering.

Flat roofs, though ideal under some conditions, often pose greater challenges as more surface area is exposed to sunlight, causing them to absorb more heat that can be transferred down to the building below. Flat roofs also run the risk of allowing rainwater to sit until it evaporates. While this can be prevented by the use of gutter systems or a very low pitch, areas more worn down due to use and weathering can still become spots for water to gather—eventually causing a leak for rubber membranes.

At Global Home Improvement, we specialize in two main types of flat roofing:

  • Rubber: The most common material choice for flat roofing jobs is rubber, which often forms the membrane in both commercial and residential applications. If not installed by a professional, though, these roofs may be prone to leaks. What’s more, it’s often tough to find the source of those leaks, which is why it’s so important to hire an experienced roofing service like Global Home Improvement. However, when done correctly, rubber roofing can help improve your roof's efficiency.
  • Metal: Despite its popular use, rubber can be a difficult material to maintain for flat roofs, especially in areas that experience dramatic climate shifts. Many homeowners consider having flat roofs replaced due to these reasons, but this is not always the most cost-effective approach. Fortunately, there exists a significantly more efficient option: low-sloping metal roofs. These roofs can be installed on either completely flat structures or inclines as low as a quarter-inch per foot. What's more, they are an extremely leak-resistant flat roofing option, which can be hard to come by.
