The flat roof effectively protects a commercial building using a completely different approach to roofing, but it boasts several surprising advantages over residential roofs. A commercial roof is much easier to access for regular maintenance and repairs. It’s also much less costly to repair or replace than its residential roof counterparts as labor is much simpler and materials are more affordable.

They also tend to be less expensive to replace, for the aspects of both the materials and labor.
