How Long Does A Flat Roof Last?

Flat roofs are now more durable than ever for commercial and residential buildings. While flat roofing used to only be able to withstand the sun in Florida for 10 years, modern technologies have improved their durability. In some cases, a flat roof can last up to 20 years.

We now have many options for flat roofs other than traditional tar-and-gravel. There are many options available, including rubber membranes, rolled tar, and multi-layer systems that dramatically extend the life of flat roofs. Quality workmanship is key, no matter if we are installing torch-down systems or single-ply rubber systems. To ensure the highest quality installations, our teams are highly trained. We assess the roof’s slope, design superior flashing, and coach homeowners and business owners about preventive maintenance.

Flat roofs are the preferred choice for most commercial buildings. Flat roofs reflect the sun better and are also more economical. However, flat roofs can be made in many colors. Flat roofs can be customized to match the color of a homeowner’s walls, shingles, tile roof, or other design elements.

You must ensure that you choose the right contractor for your home. Ask the right questions to ensure that your roofer has years of experience and is knowledgeable. Reggie Reed Roofing can provide an estimate for the best flat roofing for your home or business at (727) 479-5704.
