Flat roofing, also known as rubber roofing, is a popular and common type of roof for non-sloped to low sloped commercial and residential properties. To be considered a flat roof, a roof must have a 2/12 pitch or lower (2′ of rise over 12′ length). This is because the single most important feature of a flat roof system is its ability to hold standing water.
But flat roofs are for more than just protecting your home – a flat roof can be used as an outdoor living space, a deck, or patio.
