Flat Roof FAQs

What is the Difference Between a Flat Roof and a Regular Roof?

Unlike a regular roof, flat roofs, as their name implies, have a low pitch and are often used on commercial and industrial buildings.

What are Some of the Factors that can Cause Problems with Flat Roof Systems?

Weather is a big culprit when it comes to the damage on flat roofs. UV light, heat, rain, hail, and snow can all cause issues for flat roofs. Properly installed flat roofs hold up better to the elements, and choosing the right products that suit your climate makes a big difference. Our knowledgeable team can assist you with this selection.

If my Roof is Holding up Fine, Why Should I Bother with a Flat Roof  Inspection?

Periodic roofing inspections are your first line of defense against leaks and major repairs. When we come out to inspect a roof, we look for telltale signs of trouble that can often save you from having issues down the line.

Our crews look for standing water, blisters, compromised seams, cracked caulking, and metal flashing problems on your roof. It’s much easier—and cheaper—to fix these problems before they damage your roof’s structural integrity to the point where you need a full roof replacement. Early prevention is key!

How often do you Recommend a Flat Roof Inspection?

The Homestead Roofing Co. recommends yearly roof inspections.

How Long do Flat Roofs Last?

When installed correctly, a flat roof can last up to 25 years.

What types of Flat Roof Systems do you Install or Repair?

We are able to handle most flat roof installation and repair work. Typically, we work with built-up roofing systems, EPDM rubber membrane roofs, thermoplastic polyolefin roofing systems, and modified bitumen roofing systems.

Each type of roof has its own set of best practices and materials. If you aren’t sure what to choose for your new roof system, we can help you decide based on factors such as exposure to weather, cost, and upkeep.
