As you might have noticed, flat and low-slope roofs are popular options for Floridians. Low-slope roofs have a pitch of less than 3 1/2 inches. Flat roofs are level with the rest. There are many low-slope roof options, each with its own advantages. Let’s take a closer look at the best options for your low-slope roofing.
Low Slope Roof Systems
Low-slope roofs can be different from one another. You will typically find three types in the South Florida area. Each has its advantages. We can help you make informed decisions about your roof by reviewing each class.
A built-up roof is one that has multiple layers. These layers are made up of asphalt, ply sheets and other materials. They sit on top of a roof deck. These layers protect your home from the elements and rain. A built-up roof is ideal for temperature regulation and can save homeowners money on heating and cooling.
Modified bitumen looks very similar to built-up roofing. This multi-layered asphalt-based roof is perfect for flat roofs. This roof can withstand heavy foot traffic, which is its primary advantage.
Single-ply roofing is preferred because it requires fewer tools and comes with pre-fabricated accessories. There are many benefits to single-ply roofing, including the ability to be reflective or retentive and lightweight. Contractors can also install the roofing on unusual structures because it is lightweight.
