Let’s Talk About Flat Roofs

Flat roofs offer some interesting advantages over a traditional sloped roof. Although it’s typically viewed as an industrial or commercial building style, flat roofs have a place on residential structures as well. With some designs, the entire roof can be flat; with others a portion of the building can incorporate the horizontal/flat design. Whether it’s a residential or commercial roof, there are reasons good reason for choosing a flat roof including structure, practicality and aesthetics.Flat Roofs By Pegram Flat TPO Roof Contractor

A flat roof provides easy access via ladder or steps which makes accessing the roof much safer. It doesn’t require special equipment or skill to simply walk on the roof. It does, however, still require expertise to inspect and conduct routine maintenance which any roof requires as your first defense against damage and repairs.

The flat access also makes your roof potentially an additional usable space. Your HVAC components can easily be placed on a flat roof to make use of traditional HVAC areas for flat roofs by pegram roofing contractor hampton roadsstorage or other purposes. Solar panels or even rainwater barrels can be used on top of the roof for eco-friendly purposes. With a bit of planning in a residential setting, it can even serve as a traditional deck for light gardening, sunbathing or simply spending time outdoors.

A flat roof is a practical choice for commercial buildings and can offer an interesting design for residential homes. Consider the available options with your next building project and contact us at Flat Roofs By Pegram to discuss your project.

If you have a flat roof and you begin to see “alligator cracks” you know you’re in store for some trouble before long. Don’t be tempted by the lower price (possibly!) to do a quick mop over of your existing asphalt roof. Asphalt is simply old technology and is prone to failure. A good flat roof system is dependent upon expert workmanship for long term high performance. Excellent workmanship is harder and harder to find these days… Make sure to ask your roofing contractor an important question before you hire!

What’s The Most Important Warranty Question To Ask A Roofing Contractor?

Gone are the days of tar and gravel flat roofs that offered little or no solutions when the roof inevitably began to leak. Today, there are many great options when it comes to flat roofing. As a consumer, it’s important to know your options and have, at least, a general level of knowledge when you speak with a roofing contractor. For example, what does a warranty cover? What material should your project use – TPO, EPDM, PVC? Does it matter which thickness? What are the benefits of a white roof versus a black roof?

In this post, we’ll talk about warranties and the most important question you need to ask about them.

These days, flat roofs offer energy efficient and long lasting solutions for your home or business. But even the best products will fail if not installed properly. A good roof is the collaboration of a quality product installed by a quality contractor and all manufactures know this. A roofing warranty will easily be invalid if the product was installed incorrectly.

The roofing mechanics at Flat Roofs By Pegram are specifically trained by each of our product’s manufacturers to ensure the roof is installed correctly. We never subcontract our work for this very reason – work performed by mechanics who are not trained in the product they are using will risk the manufacturer’s warranty. There is no value in that risk!

The most important question you can ask about a roofing warranty is whether the mechanics are specifically trained by the product’s manufacturer.  If the answer to that question is anything other than a resounding YES, then buyer beware.

Flat Roofs By Pegram is committed to only using our own mechanics who are highly trained by each of our manufacturers. Additionally, every commercial roofing project is supervised and inspected by owner, Willie Pegram. We stand behind every warranty because we stand behind our roofing mechanics!
