Flat Roofs

As the name suggests, the flat roof is one with a roof pitch value of less than 3/12. Flat roofs are built to withstand heavy amounts of snow built up. There are various types of Flat roof systems, but we only install a two-ply torch-down system as it has the longest life span.

Technical knowledge as well as years of experience is required to handle flat roof projects. Real Blue Roofing is a team of professionals with knowledge and experience handling complex residential flat roof projects such as small balconies, roof extensions, etc. Please check out the materials we use to know more about flat roof materials.

 

Why a flat roof?

It’s common to have a flat roof for almost all commercial buildings as they provide space for large equipment such as AC units, kitchen exhaust fans, etc. These types of roofs have a utility in certain residential houses where it provides space for outdoor seating, solar panels, etc. 

A properly installed flat roof can last for more than 20 years and maintenance cost for these types of roof is generally low. 

What materials are used for a flat roof?

There are different types of flat roofs available to be installed but we only install 2-ply torch-down bitumen. A fire protection board is installed on top of the insulation before installing two layers of torch-down sheets.  

A base layer is torched down with heat before torching down a cap layer with granules on the top. 

Can shingles be installed on a flat roof?

As per the manufacturer’s guidelines, roofing shingles can only be installed on roofs with a pitch value of more than 3/12. Some roofers make the mistake of installing shingles on a flat roof and it is almost guaranteed to leak. 

Every year we take on many such small projects where we remove the shingles and replace the roof with a properly installed flat roof that would last for a year without any issues.
