Flat roofing has become more common in contemporary society. Flat roofing is a good cost-efficient roofing solution.
Flat roofing also provides logistical convenience if you plan on installing solar panels in the future. Regardless of your reason, GERMAN ROOFING will always accommodate your roofing preferences without delay and at a fair price. We use top-grade materials to offset the penetration of wind and water with all of our flat roofing structures.
We currently use three different types of roofing materials for flat roofing, including: rolled roofing, foam roofing, and walking decks. Walking decks have an added bonus because the entire roofing area can be used for recreational purposes.
Flat Roofing Maintenance
Each type of flat roofing requires a different type of maintenance at different intervals to keep your roof in good condition and give it the longest life possible.
Rolled roofing maintenance would include: Clearing the roof free of debris, and sealing the edges and seams as needed.
Foam roofing maintenance would include: Clearing the roof free of debris, cutting out and patching bubbles, resealing scuppers and penetrations, and recoating the roof with elastomeric coating every three to eight years to protect the roof from drying and cracking.
Walking deck maintenance would include: Clearing the roof free of debris, resealing scuppers, and resealing the roof every three to eight years to prevent the material from drying out and cracking.
Additional Flat Roof Information
GERMAN ROOFING does not recommend the use of rolled roofing over living area, or over any area larger than 1,000 square feet. if your roof is over living space, and/or larger than this, we would recommend foam roofing or walk deck, or we could explore other options.
