The 411 on Flat Roofs
There are various reasons building owners choose flat roofs for their commercial and industrial buildings. For one thing, flat roofs are comparatively inexpensive—and money certainly talks when it comes to managing your business. Having a flat roof also gives building owners an extra floor of usable space to house HVAC units, storage facilities, solar panels and more—up on top of the building where they are out of sight but still easy to access. That easy accessibility is another benefit of a flat roof; because a flat roof can be easily accessed on walked on, it makes repairs, installation and maintenance easier for both the roof itself and any equipment located on it, and cleaning gutters and performing other such work is easier, too.
Now, for the downside of having a flat roof. As aforementioned, flat roofs are prone to their share of problems, some of the most common including:
- Poor drainage, which leads to ponding water and can cause the breakdown of roofing materials
- Development of leaks, especially along the seams
- Damage from storms
- UV damage
- Damage from weathering
- Age-related issues
- Loose membrane bonds
- Damage from building movement
- Damage from straight-line winds
When your flat roof develops these and other problems, you can trust the Mid-West Roofing Systems team to take care of the issues promptly and properly!
