Discover the Facts About Flat Roofs From St. Louis Roofers, St. Louis, Missouri

Flat roofs are horizontal roofs constructed of an under layer and a top coating. They obviously differ from sloped roofs in appearance, but flat roofs also offer many advantages that sloped roofs do not. B King Roofing & Exteriors specializes in installing and repairing flat roofs, having served the residents and businesses of St. Louis, MO, for almost 40 years. These expert roofers suggest a few types of flat roofing that residential and commercial buildings can have installed.

There are several different types of flat roofs you can choose to have installed. Built-up roofs, or BURs, are constructed from multiple layers of waterproof material, hot tar, and stone. Modified bitumen are single-ply roofs that contain mineral-based wear surfaces. And rubber membrane flat roofs are constructed of true rubber that resembles an inner tube. No matter which type you choose, flat roofs must be properly sealed in order to have integrity, durability, and stability. They can last up to 25 years when properly installed and maintained.

They also make homes more energy-efficient and can be adapted to complement the colors and styles of any home.

Flat roofs do require re-coating and resealing every few years to prevent leaks, and they are prone to weight-bearing problems in areas that are affected by ice and snow. Overall, however, they can provide architectural appeal and functionality to homes and businesses looking to stand out from others.
