Quality Flat Roofs & Low Slope Roofing

Roofs that are almost flat and mostly found on commercial buildings are referred to as low slope roofing or simply a flat roof. You can also find this kind of roof in residential buildings and homes. However, the term flat roof is slightly inaccurate considering the fact that roofs are not supposed to be flat. Instead, they are supposed to have some sort of allowances to allow water drainage.

Unfortunately, since there are not so many residential homes with these kinds of roofs, most roofers are not well trained to work on them. This is the primary reason why you need to give RJF's Roofing a call to work on your flat roof. The crew is well trained with a comprehensive knowledge on the unique and technical challenges these type roof can present.

Flat Roof/Low Slope Roofing Challenges

There are so many technical challenges that come with a flat roofing system. Some of these challenges are about areas that are leaking and how to find these areas. It is important to note that a commercial roof is not supposed to have areas of stagnating water. Standing water on a roof is not a good sign and can mainly be as a result of a drooping roof decking or poor drain planning.
