Pros and Cons of flat roofs

Flat roofs are commonly seen in industrial and commercial buildings, but they have their place in residential dwellings as well. The modern architectural style often incorporates a flat roof to give a sleek and contemporary look. Although they are called flat roofs and appear flat, they are always built on a slight pitch to allow water to drain.

Flat roofs work well for many designs, and they are often easier to install than other types of roofs. However, they are prone to leaks and repairs. Flat roofs will leak over time, and when the problem isn’t addressed quickly, it can lead to extensive building damage. If you have a flat roof on your home or business, you will want to do a thorough roof inspection annually. Call a reputable roofing contractor at the first sign of damage or leakage.

Many people worry about flat roofs in areas like Toronto because they fear that without a significant pitch, snow will pile up on the roof, creating a danger of collapse. Toronto roofing codes account for snowfall accumulation, and building codes address structural integrity that can handle snowfall.

Benefits of flat roofs include:

  • Flat roofs are often cheaper to install and use less overall material
  • Flat roofs make it easier to add an addition to the home or building in the future
  • Flat roofs provide the architectural capability to add a second story at some point in the future
  • Flat roofs can be used as decks or outdoor living space
  • Flat roofs allow for rooftop gardens

Common roofing materials

The costs of labor and materials will depend on the roofing material used and how extensive the damage is. Common roofing materials used on flat roofs repairs in Toronto include:

  • EPDM—a contemporary roofing solution is a flexible material that is the byproduct of EDPM rubber enhanced with synthetic fibers. It is a relatively new roofing material that has not yet gained the popularity of other roofing solutions but shows promise for its durability, insulation, and water-resistant qualities.
  • Rolled roofing is a cheap and easy roofing solution used on many commercial buildings. There are numerous types of rolled roofing. Some forms are meant to be an underlayment for other roofing materials, and some styles have a coating that allows them to be used as a stand-alone roofing solution.
  • Bitumen membrane system—2-ply and 3-ply bitumen products are popular roofing solutions for flat roofs. The system performs well in temperature extremes, making it an excellent roofing solution in the Toronto area. The membranes can contract and expand with minimal cracking or blistering, making it perfect for warm summer temperatures and heavy winter snow.
  • Asphalt shingles—asphalt shingles require a pitch to work well, so they are not the recommended solution for flat roofs.
  • Tar and gravel—a tar and gravel roof is built up with layers of hot tar, and thick roofing felt, then gravel is added to hold the material down and minimize damage from the sun and abrasion.
  • Metal roofing—metal roofing is vulnerable to the environment, and problems caused by poor installation. Deformations in the roof can lead to leaks, and they are not aesthetically pleasing. Deformations can be caused by temperature extremes, improper handling, walking on the roof or tree branches and other objects striking the roof.
  • Rubber roofing—Rubber roofing is a popular roofing material in the Toronto area. Rubber roofing is affordable, and because it is made of recycled material, it is eco-friendly. It is also durable, allowing most manufacturers of rubber roofing to provide a 30-year warranty. Rubber roofing offers excellent insulation, which is essential in the brutal Toronto winters. Having a new protective coating re-applied once every few years will keep your rubber roof in good repair.
