Benefits of Flat Roofs
There are several reasons that flat roofs are cost-efficient, and that starts right at the point of installation. The straightforward design will usually mean less time and fewer materials involved. The natural result will typically be a lower upfront cost than with other roofing options.
Furthermore, the cost savings don’t stop after the roof has been installed. The nature of a Charleston flat roof means it reflects the sunlight and heat away from the building during our hot South Carolina summer months. When we get our cold days, the flat roof retains warmth better. What this means for property owners is that the HVAC doesn’t have to work as hard in keeping the interior at the preferred temperature. Which means lower energy bills.
The nature of a flat roof often means fewer maintenance costs are required. While routine inspections are always a good idea, a flat roof is likely to be easier to care for. It’s very structure means there are no angles where debris can accumulate, meaning cleaning is quicker. Ease of maintenance often leads to greater longevity as well.
An underrated benefit of flat roofs might be the way they open up space. A flat roof can b used for recreational purposes. It can be used for storage. Those that love gardening can even exercise their green thumb on a flat roof. All of this allows a Charleston flat roof to offer intangible improvements to quality of life, in addition to the tangible difference it can make on short-term and long-term costs.
Membrane Roofing: This is an excellent option for property owners in areas with high levels of direct sunlight. Its durable construction and special coating are designed to resist the damaging effects of UV rays and other environmental factors. Not only is membrane roofing resistant, but it requires minimal maintenance, making it a cost-effective choice for both residential and commercial properties.
Modified Bitumen: A good choice for those emphasizing durability. Modified bitumen’s tough construction and strong resistance to punctures, tears and other types of damage make it ideal for commercial properties that experience high levels of foot traffic. As well as being highly resistant, modified bitumen roofing also offers superior flexibility-- it can expand and contract in line with temperature changes, without risk of cracking or breaking.
Built-Up Roofing: BUR offers strength in the face of heavy winds and extreme temperatures. Buildings that have more stringent fire safety codes may opt for BUR. Furthermore, this type of Charleston flat roof offers great versatility because it can be customized to fit any size or shape of building.
