Houston, TX | 4 Best Commercial Flat Roof options for installation or repair

Today we will talk about the 4 best materials for flat roofs

There are tons of options you could use to install on your flat roof but here are the top most popular ones. Anything past these options probably needs to have a good reason why you would use something different.

The main things that determine a good flat roof material are going to be the lifespan or longevity, price, and ease of maintenance.

1 PVC Roofing

PVC Roofing is the preferred choice as the best flat roof material available today. PVC roofing can be more expensive over some other options however the pros outweigh the cons. it is a multi-ply material that would lay down on top of your flat roof. Because it’s multi-ply it’s stronger than single-ply options. The lifespan of PVC flat roofs are approximately 20 + years. It’s colored white which reflects the sun which does keep your energy bills cooler (pun intended.)

2 TPO Roof

TPO roofs are inexpensive and have a life span between 10 to 20 years. They are white as well as the PVC roofs so they do help with the energy costs. Heat welding is how each roll of TPO is held together.

3 Modified Bitumen Roof

Budget-wise, this one’s going to be the most cost-effective but it only lasts approximately 10 to 15 years. The surface could look a lot like shingles or asphalt that you might find on the road however that makes it susceptible to bubbling and cracking. Sometimes modified bitumen roofs are exactly what you need but everything really depends on the roof itself.

4 Metal Roofs

When we use the word flat roofs that doesn’t always necessarily mean exactly flat roof but instead it could mean a roof that has a small slope on but from the ground level it probably appears flat. These minor slopes are to help rain just move down to where the drains are. A metal flat roof is perfect for a building that would have a slope on the roof greater than about 2 in. Metal is the highest price route to have installed however it has a long lifespan lasting 20 to 30 years. Metal will not crack however in order to use them properly you have to make sure that they are sealed correctly around the corners and in the scenes..
