Why Your Roofing Contractor Recommends a Flat Roof for Commercial Buildings

Why do roofing contractors recommend flat roofs for commercial building projects?

When talking with roofing contractors as you’re about to plan your commercial building structure, most construction companies would advise you to have a flat roof above your building.

Why Is This So?

If you live in a predominantly urban spot, one thing you might have found about the industrial buildings around you is that their roofs are flat. 

You will find that schools, warehouses, grocery stores, hospitals, and the like all have flat roofs, unlike residential buildings. But why are commercial buildings with flat roofs designed and more recommended by roofing contractors? There are quite a few legitimate explanations for it, as it turns out. 

Why Flat?

Most people almost always imagine the peaked roofing of their home when a person thinks of a roof, but if you look around next time you’re out in the area, you’ll find most of the roofs are actually flat, especially on commercial buildings. 

Indeed, not only is flat roofing as successful as sloped roofing, it is much more cost-effective, and appears to fall into the uniform ideal required by most business and manufacturing districts.

Roofing contractors have their biases, but let’s look into the different reasons as to why they prefer to use flat roofing.

The Benefits of Flat Roofing

There’s More Storage Space

If for one purpose rather than any other, flat roofs have become almost ubiquitous in commercial buildings based on advice from roofing contractors, it is because of how they encourage properties to optimize their use of their property. 

A flat roof would allow for both a wide first floor and vast quantities of storage, as opposed to a sloped roof that minimizes the area that is available on the top floor and will totally obliterate all storage on the roof portion of the building.

To control interior temperatures, commercial buildings need multiple HVAC units. Owing to various safety and security concerns, some states have building codes that do not enable the construction of heavy HVAC equipment at ground level.

Furthermore, the construction at the ground level of large machinery comes at the expense of precious floor space that can be used for other purposes. 

For both problems, flat roofs are an ideal solution, since flat roofs provide HVAC units and other heavy machinery with storage space while maintaining floor space.

It Is More Practical

For larger structures, the architecture and layout of sloped roofs come with particular problems that are more evident. Stability is a concern, for one. It will take a roof with an incredibly tall top or one with several peaks to create a sloped roof on a commercial building. 

It could also be more unsafe and difficult to perform a small roof fix on it. At best or outright dangerous to enforce at worst, these limitations are impractical. 

The angled slope of the roof in typical residential properties is what promotes the runoff of rainwater into the gutter system and into a rudimentary system of rainwater control. 

The room provided by the flat roof requires sophisticated and effective rainwater removal systems. Roofing contractors prefer flat roofing to be implemented on commercial buildings, which are largely resistant to blockage problems.

Moreover, when the building is surrounded by buildings that are built side by side, roofing contractors know it’s best to have a flat roof to have more space in between buildings.

Conclusion

Quality Discount Roofing and Construction roof contractors prefer flat roofing for their commercial building projects for more reasons than one. 

Not only do flat roofings seamlessly blend into the architectural demands of the nation’s business districts, but because they offer various benefits to their use. 

They are cost-effective, add space, robust, and allow the option of the best material to be used to produce a roof with little influence on the overall aesthetics of the building.

Roof contractors all over know that this is the common measure, and the geniuses at Quality Discount Roofing and Construction only have the best roofing materials for your next commercial building.
