Residential Flat Roof

Flat roofs aren’t architecturally logical, as rain and snow will shed much more quickly off a sloped roof. Yet for historic Modern-style buildings, flat roofs are at the core of the architecture, meant to reflect the broad horizontal lines of the natural landscape. Of course, you don’t need to live in a modern house to deal with a flat roof. Traditional homes often have sections of flat roof—over shed dormers, above porches and garages, and on balconies. And their horizontal lines abound in the West and in urban areas.  But flat roofs take a pounding from harsh weather, which is why they rarely last as long as a good sloped roof. Fortunately, modern materials for covering flat roofs have improved considerably over the past two decades

Before you Decide on a Roofing Contractor

  1. Insured – Make sure that the company you hire has liability insurance to cover any unforeseen problems. Worker injury could be the responsibility of the property owner if your contractor is not properly insured.
  2. Experience – Make sure that the company you hire has a list of references, and call them.
