What exactly is flat roofing?


Flat roofing has grown in popularity in recent years and many homeowners have installed flat roofing for their homes. Flat roofing is designed at a gradient which allows water and moisture to drain from it effectively. In addition to being at an angle, the single-ply material used for flat roofing has no joints or seams which provides an extra layer of protection as water is unable to leak through. If you’re looking for a proven roofing type that is watertight, easy to maintain and won’t require costly repairs in the future, our flat roofing could be the solution that you’ve been searching for.
