Flat Roofs For Commercial Buildings

Flat roofs are often used on commercial buildings throughout Glasgow and Scotland. Thanks to innovations such as Firestone EPDM Rubber Roofing, they are becoming more common in commercial buildings such as hospitals, schools, factories, and hotels.

Recently, interest in low-rise projects with flat roofs has increased. Compared to other options, this design has a tilt angle of no more than eight degrees. They are typically enclosed by a curb, have gutters and are constructed with a waterproof membrane.

A house with a flat roof is often one floor, less often two stories. Such an architectural construction offers the opportunity to build comfortable and aesthetic structures that are exclusive in their design. 

Benefits of Flat Roofs

  1. Aesthetic design: Flat roofs offer an aesthetic alternative to sloping roofs. They are an innovation in modern architecture and offer buildings a beautiful contemporary look.
  2. Platform for easy equipment installation: On a roof of this type, it is easy to install several types of equipment such as air conditioners, solar panels and aerials.
  3. 100% weather resistant: Flat roofing systems have strong but flexible sheets which are resistant to weathering, UV rays, and rain – no pooling, no algae growth nor degrading moss which can stress vulnerable points, therefore, leading to roof failure.
  4. Quick installation: Depending on the materials used, flat roofs can offer shorter construction times – no downtime, no closure during work periods. Additionally, another advantage these designs offer is that fewer construction materials are needed to build the roof.
  5. Maintenance: Flat roofs can be easily checked regularly to avoid deterioration of the surface which might result in large unplanned expenses.
  6. Versatile: Flat roofs can be used for both commercial and residential roofs, regardless of the size or shape. These roofs can be installed on all types of commercial buildings including hospitals, schools, factories, hotels, garages, porches, sheds and many more.
  7. Energy efficient: Modern flat roofs installed by Evana Roofing have lots of energy saving options in the long term, saving your money which would have been spent on heating bills.
  8. Cost: When you contract Evana Roofing for your EPDM rubber roofing system, you will be hiring an accredited and experienced roofing company who will prep and install your flat roof correctly and at affordable price rate, without incurring added costs later as a result of damages.
