Types of flat roofing

A roof takes the full force of the elements, day after day, year after year. Flat roofs can take even more punishment than a high incline roof so it really matters what it’s made of and how it’s installed. Through the years, many materials and methods have been employed to construct a flat roof and the advancement continues to this day.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of some of the modern membrane roofing materials but there’s certainly a time and place for a good old felt roof.
