Commercial roofs and residential roofing systems are fundamentally different in their structure and composition. Most commercial roofs require coverage over a large facility with commercial heating and cooling systems, which means these buildings require flat roof construction. To the untrained observer, a flat roof system would naturally require a simpler engineering design than its residential roofing counterparts. While a commercial roofing system may seem simple, but it’s far more complex than you might suspect at first glance.

Flat roofs are the most common roofs found in industrial and commercial buildings. Even if you know everything there is to know about how a sloped residential roof works, a flat roof is fundamentally different and has completely different needs. Rather than asphalt shingles, flat roofs typically use either tar and gravel or protective membranes to prevent water and air infiltration.

On the rare occasion a repair is needed, the basic layout of a flat roof demands it be conducted immediately before it causes more problems and more expensive repairs.
