FLAT ROOFING SERVICES
Flat roofs require low sloped roofing products. Most commercial structures, shopping centers, malls, gas stations, and office buildings have a flat roof. There are also many residential homes that have flat roofs. Flat roofs can be used to grow gardens and converted into green roofs. The city of Chicago has over 200 green roofs, covering 2.5 million square feet, which is more than any city in the United States. In fact, Chicago plans to have a total of six thousand green roofs installed by the end of 2020. Usually, flat roofs are not all completely flat. Most flat roofs are built with some slope but in many cases, the slope is not enough to eliminate ponding water. When a new flat roof is installed, many roofers will lay down tapered insulation to create a better slope and install larger roof drains if needed to ensure proper drainage.
