Flat roofing systems can be made from a number of different materials including single ply membranes, modified bitumen, and TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin). Each different material has properties that give it advantages in certain aspects, with the ideal choice being dependent on the uses of the building below.
All are long-lasting and durable, and are often reusable or recyclable, making many flat roofs eco-friendly as well as effective protection against the elements.
Flat roofing is found in many locations around Florida on a variety of different buildings. Coverings on these roofs can be made from a number of materials, each having its own benefits.
Tornado Roofing has been installing roofing of all kinds for many years, including flat roofs in Florida that are designed to withstand the environment of the area.
Why Choose Flat Roofing?
Due to the design of some buildings, flat roofs are a necessity due to environmental factors, the building materials available, or simply the whim of the architect. Not many flat roofs are truly flat, as there is often a very slight incline to help with drainage.
In many cases, a flat roof is installed to reduce costs and make it easier for the building to be completed.
Single Ply Membranes
One type of flat roofing system uses single ply membranes either made from a synthetic polymer or synthetic rubber. Resistant to fire, chemicals, water, and even wind, single ply membranes can also be designed to reflect heat and keep buildings cool.
Single ply membranes are often installed as individual sheets that are heat-welded together. Modern technology means they can last between 20 and 40 years.
A variety of asphalt that protects well against wind and rain, which is a good choice in Florida with the potential for hurricanes. Coatings can be applied to protect against heat, and repairs and recovering are simple procedures that can extend the life of the roof.
By heating and sealing joints, modified bitumen flat roofs are waterproof and can last 20 years or more.
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (or TPO for short) is a material that is resistant to many weather conditions and is extremely flexible, making it a great choice to fit on many kinds of roof. They are energy efficient and resistant to dirt, a desirable quality if you want your roof to look its best.
TPO roofing can last up to 30 years and is also fire and wind resistant as well as waterproof.
Flat Roofing Maintenance and Repair
Flat roofing will require maintenance and repair just like any other kind of roofing material. The covering may become split or cracked, possibly developing leaks. In this instance, we can repair your flat roof and make it waterproof again, protecting the building below as intended.
A flat roof is often more susceptible to damage than other kinds of the roof due to the chance of standing water having an effect on the surface. With proper drainage, this will be minimized, but deformations and other issues can still happen. It makes sense to repair any faults that develop as quickly as possible.

What Benefit is There with a Flat Roof?
A flat roof may not last as long as a tile roof, but that doesn’t mean that there are no benefits to having a flat roof. The materials used can reflect heat, protect against hurricanes with strong wind and rain, and be far easier to clean and maintain than any other type of roofing.
Further benefits include fire and chemical resistance, which may be of limited use in a residential setting but could be of great importance in a commercial setting.
For some buildings, the shape of the building requires the use of a flat roof, while for other buildings the cost of the roof is a major factor. Every building is different, and we evaluate each one on its own merits when making recommendations for styles and materials.
