Why are Commercial Roofs Flat?

Atlanta roofers are often asked about the flatness of commercial roofs, and why they seem to be so popular in our area. You can count on the experts at Team Roofing to have the answer to this and any other commercial roof-related questions that you may have. Flat roofs are often used on commercial structures for two simple reasons: they are affordable and easy to maintain.

Efficient and cost-effective

Installation is much easier when it comes to flat roofs, and because the roof isn't pitched, it is much easier to maintain. It allows business owners to utilize the roof space for their air conditioning units, keeping them out of harm's way. A flat roof constructed with tar and gravel has the added benefit of fire resistance. Really, there are many reasons why a flat commercial roof is a smart option for business owners.
