Residential Flat Roofing

Despite their name, flat roofs do have a very low slope or pitch. While they tend to be more common on large commercial buildings, they do have some residential appeal as well. Gutterman Services puts a minimum 10-year warranty on all flat/low slope roofing systems.

Pros Of
Flat Roofing:

  • Aesthetics – a house with mismatched roof pitches can be an eyesore
  • Convenience – easier to put an HVAC unit on top of a commercial building rather than in a high traffic area
  • Can offer a “living level” – an extra space for recreational or garden use

Cons Of
Flat Roofing:

  • More prone to leaks
  • Prone to standing water/snow
  • Harder to insulate

3 Main Materials Used To
Make Membrane Flat Roof Systems:

EPDM rubber: Least expensive option, but tends to absorb heat.

TPO/heat welded vinyl: Most energy efficient (readily available in white + gray), welded seams add more durability than EPDM.

Modified asphalt: As a multi-ply layered material, it stands up to sharp objects and collisions better than EPDM and TPO. It is less energy efficient than TPO and harder to install than its single-ply relatives.
