Flat Roof for Commercial Buildings

Benefits of Flat Roof for Commercial Buildings

Flat roofs or nearly flat roofs are common choices for commercial buildings and medical facilities with wide roof spans. Flat roofs offer a few advantages for businesses as opposed to traditional sloped roofs often seen in residential construction. Although they look like they are completely flat to the eye, they are actually built at a 2% slope, making water and debris run off still. Some of the top reasons for installing a flat roof are:

  • Cost effective
  • Space for HVAC systems
  • Easier maintenance

Flat Roof Cost

Flat roofs are commonly used in industrial buildings due to their lower cost. Installing flat roofs is generally cheaper than installing sloped roofs, so construction costs can be kept down. Because they have a smaller surface area, their cost is lower, and they are much easier to install since workers can walk safely on them.

HVAC Considerations for Flat Roofs

Air conditioning unit placement is another reason for many commercial buildings having flat roofs. With a low slope roof, business owners can put air conditioners on the roof instead of on the ground. As a result of this configuration, HVAC units are protected from damage and vandalism, and they do not have to push cold air upward, which usually consumes a lot of energy. Instead, the AC unit releases cool air naturally downward.

Flat Roof Maintenance is Easier

A worker can easily walk on a flat roof to make a repair, as opposed to needing a harness or other safety equipment to make a repair on a sloped roof. In addition, flat roofs may make it easier for leaks and other damage to be detected and repaired. Due to their easier maintenance they are a great option for business owners.
