Flat Roofing Professionals To Help With Your Fort Lauderdale Properties

Flat roofing

Flat roofing is fairly common in South Florida and utilized by some homeowners but also by many commercial property owners. Panela Roofing's team of professionals is who you should turn to for flat roofing installation and repairs in Fort Lauderdale.

The flat roofing option often is preferred by building contractors because they are designed to absorb and drain water effectively and also are cheaper to install than traditional gable-and-shingle roofs.

Also known as torch down or torch on roofing, the installation of flat roofing involves an open-flame propane torch and sheets of modified bitumen. These sheets are rolled out onto the roof, and through the use of the torch, they are heated, so they adhere to the actual roof.

While no roof is absolutely perfect, commercial property owners should consider flat roofing because it:

  • Is cost-effective
  • Allows for greater ease in installing HVAC systems
  • Is ideal for installing solar panels
  • Could create additional useful outdoor space

Torch Down Roof Contractor

Water-resistant torch down roofing provides resistance to UV rays and reflectivity to keep buildings cool and energy efficient, which make them ideal for the Fort Lauderdale area.

Torch-on roofing also is extremely durable - it resists tears and punctures, thus allowing for foot traffic. Flat roofing also is considered low maintenance, provided the pitch is on point, and the gutter system remains free-flowing.

The general rule of thumb (actual code in some areas) for flat roofing is a one-quarter inch of slope per foot. So, for example, a flat roof 20 feet long would be required to slope five inches. This slope is critical in the design of a flat roof.

How Do I Know Flat Roofing Is My Best Option?

This decision shouldn't be made without consulting a roofing contractor like Panela Roofing. With knowledge and expertise in all aspects of roofing, we make thorough recommendations to homeowners and business owners alike.

If flat roofing is, in fact, the best option, it requires less money, time, and materials to complete. But if metal roofing or luxury shingles are a better option, we will suggest you go that direction and would be honored to install that type of roof.

Whether you require roof installation, repairs, or replacement, Panela Roofing is standing by to go to work for you.
