Why Flat Roofs Are Popular

Flat roofs are installed across thousands of homes and commercial properties in Canada. They are quick and easy to install and are generally more affordable than pitched roofs.

At Special Roofing, Ottawa, we specialize in installing, maintaining, clean-ups, and replacing flat roofs.

Flat Roofs and Snow

There are quite a few misconceptions about flat roofs. One of the most misleading myths is that flat roofs are more prone to leaks than their pitched counterparts. The other is that flat roofs cannot handle the weight of snow and sag easily as a result. Neither myth is accurate.

As highly skilled roofers, we explain the truth about flat roofs.

Snow Weight

First of all, if you happen to live in a cold place like Ottawa, you need to install a flat roof with adequate insulation, to begin with. The roof should have a solid thickness – at least 12 inches in depth – to lock in the heat during the winter months.

A flat roof that is this thick will be able to bear the weight of any amount of snow (barring an avalanche), and you have nothing to worry about. However, for the design and insulation to function, the roof must be installed with great care and expertise, which is where Special roofing comes in.

Maintenance and Leaks

Flat roofs must be installed properly on a specific slope to allow water and snow drainage. Although they are installed with a waterproof membrane, diligent inspections and maintenance can help mitigate problems like leaks and prevent them from becoming worse.

Getting a problem fixed immediately can help you avoid costly long-term repairs. Make sure you call our experts at Special Roofing, and we’ll send you a free quote.
