Flat Roofs for Houses
Every flat roof is the same, isn’t it? Absolutely not. Many homeowners are surprised to learn that there are 4 basic types of flat roof. While the price for these roofs is relatively similar, different types of flat roofs offer different benefits. If you are considering installing a flat roof on a new home, you should carefully consider your options and discuss them with an experience roofing contractor. In the meantime, let’s discuss the 3 main types of flat roof: built-up roof, modified bitumen roof, and rubber membrane roof.
The roof is that feature of your home that goes through regular wear and tear. Though every roof needs to be replaced at some point of time, its longevity depends on several factors, which include usage of proper materials and their maintenance.
When should you call a professional when deciding repairing your roof? What safety precautions MUST be taken when deciding on fixing your roof yourself instead of calling a roofer? What should I look out for when repairing the tiles and/or shingles on the roof? Could a leaking roof be caused by something other than damage to tiles or shingles? Are there any best practices in fixing the roof myself? Should I repair the roof in just any weather or are there any factors that I should look for when climbing the ladder and getting on top of the house?
Your roof is a little more than just the material that you choose to cover it with. Flashing is an integral part of your roofing structure and done right it can save you headaches down the road.
Like with all construction trades, roofing is a specialized field that takes true professionals to get the job done right. Just because you have a ladder and the tools doesn’t mean you are a roofer.
