Flat roof systems are created from concrete and metal frames. They are indicated for high-rise buildings (where the roof can be affected by strong wind and air drafts), but also for regular buildings, residential or commercial, that want to use the space provided by a flat roof for different purposes or activities: panoramic viewing, storing HVAC appliances or photovoltaic panels, the possibility of adding another floor etc.
This type of roof is waterproofed with bituminous membranes. These membranes are used for creating a double waterproofing system: a vapor barrier and a sealing membrane.
Flat roofs receive the same types of warranty as sloped roofs, provided by the manufacturer (material warranty and system warranty) and the roofing contractor that provides the installation (workmanship warranty).
Typically, a flat roof membrane is designed to last anywhere from 10-30 years, depending on these factors: climate, installation, risks of roof penetration, as well as proper maintenance.
