Flat Roof Challenges & Solutions
Though seemingly simpler than the ornate slate, shingle, or metal roofs with a slope, flat roofs present many challenges. Most flat roofing materials, such as asphalt or tarpaper, have a relatively short life span of 10 to 12 years. Asphalt shingles can last 35 years and many well-made slate or metal roofs can last 100 to 150 years. Flat roofs are often in out-of-the-way or invisible locations like the tops of towers or between sections of sloped roofs, making it difficult to perform regular inspections or maintenance.
Flat roofs also require a high level of craftsmanship, particularly at the edges where they join the masonry walls. The metal detail (or flashing) in this area requires careful installation in order to provide a watertight area so the various parts of the roof can move.
The Alpha Roofing Team is experienced in the installation and maintenance of many roof types, and looks forward to solving your flat roofing challenges.
