Flat roofs are great features for a home. They provide you with a horizontal surface where you can place AHU units, solar panels, rooftop gardens, or anything that your heart desires. These roofs come in different materials from PVC to metal and others. So which one is the best type of flat roof for your home?
The highest performing flat roof material is PVC. PVC roofing is the easiest to maintain out of all flat roof types. In addition, it has a longer lifespan which makes it quite popular as anyone wants to have a home that lasts. While it is a little bit more expensive than other options, the price justifies the quality. In addition, this type of flat roof is composed of a reinforced membrane that can resist damage by impact and provide more durability than single-ply roofs. In fact, PVC is expected to last for about 20 years or more. As such, you will need fewer repairs to your flat roof if you use this material.
Also, PVC offers great insulation properties, especially because it comes in a light color which reflects sunlight. Therefore, your home will remain cooler during the summer and you will need to consume less energy and save a whole lot on your energy bills.
PVC roofs are especially beneficial to commercial roofs.
The second best type of flat roof to us is Reinforced Bitumen Membranes also known as RBMs. These are two or three layers of waterproof material, bonded together to create a flexible membrane that will keep your roof safe. This type of roof however needs another layer to be usable. So you might use gravel and create a garden on top of your home.
