Advantages and Disadvantages of Flat Roofs

Flat roofs offer a unique roofing solution that has distinct benefits and disadvantages. There are many reasons to have a flat roof, especially here in Texas, where the climate is relatively dry and warm. Flat roofs are, as the name implies, flat on top. If the building’s structural integrity is sound enough, a flat roof can be converted into a patio.

If your flat roof is in need of repairs or being replaced, the Austin roofing contractors at AAA Mustang Roofing have the experience and skills necessary to do any kind of roof work. Contact us at 512-650-9866 to learn more about what we can do to help you improve the value of your home.

Pros and Cons of Flat Roofs

Flat roofs are very easy to maintain because they have plenty of horizontal surface to easily stand on. A flat roof is also cheaper and easier to install and maintain than a roof with a slope. They lend themselves to being useful rather than merely being wasted space at the top of a structure. It is also much easier to install solar panels on a flat roof than any other roof. Some people with flat roofs even enjoy rooftop gardens.

However, flat roofs are susceptible to damage from precipitation. It is not rare for them to collapse under the weight of heavy snows or rainfall. If the roof is not properly maintained, its integrity can falter. When this happens, the entire roof may need to be replaced. Flat roofs are better-suited for smaller buildings. The more area a flat roof has, the more reinforcement it needs.

I first became acquainted with Zane Nixon, owner of AAA Mustang Roofing, when our metal roof was severely damaged in a hailstorm. Our house is large and has over 30 separate roof surfaces, with an equivalent number of edges and valleys. Zane and his crew completed the work in less than two weeks, and it is flawless. They even repaired several areas that suffered structural damages.

Just recently a flash flood on the day following hurricane Hermine caused significant damage to the first story of the house. I called Zane and he was here within 30 minutes and stayed until midnight. Using squeegees, towels and a shop vacuum, we managed to save the rugs and furniture. However, the walls required substantial repairs. Zane worked closely with our insurance adjuster, and the wall repair work under his guidance as contractor is every bit as professional as his previous work.

I recommend AAA Mustang without reservation for any type of construction or remodeling job.
