Most commercial buildings have flat or low sloping roofs. A flat roof’s design is efficient and economical for expansive buildings such as factories, warehouses, apartment buildings, schools, and other large buildings. There are several different types of systems which you can install on a flat roof such as TPO, EPDM, etc. It is very important that a flat roof be properly installed but when done correctly they can be very durable and last a long time. Air conditioners, satellite dishes, and solar panels are easier to install on flat roofs and can remain mostly hidden from street view.
It is vital that your flat roof is installed and maintained by a professional roofing contractor that understands proper water drainage, including drain placement, to avoid puddles and standing water.
