The term flat roofs is a little misleading in that they are not really flat. They have a very low slope and may look flat to the naked eye. But a roof that is nearly flat or slightly pitched is called a flat roof or low slope roof. No roof should be completely flat because it must have at least a slight slope to drain.
Some of the advantages of low-slope roofs and flat roofs include:
Heat and Cooling Installation: Steep sloped roofs may provide extra space in the structure. The space below the roofs would be filled with air and changing how heat and cooling system function.
Installation Cost: Compared with the steeped sloped roofs, a low slope or a flat roof technically needs less material to build. In result, it lowers the installation cost of the materials because they are easy to install compared with steeped sloped roofs.
Maintenance Requirements: Since low slope roofs are easier to walk around and move, the maintenance of it is much easier. The chance of slipping and falling off is lower compared with a steep roof.

Flat roofs, also known as low slope roofing systems, are not entirely flat. They may look horizontal or nearly horizontal, but they usually have a slight slope of about 10 degrees to allow water to drain off.
Flat roofs have been around for centuries.
Benefits of flat roofs are that they are more accessible making it easier to inspect, maintain and clean. With a properly maintained flat roof, you can extend the longevity of your entire roofing system.
Flat roofs can potentially increase the insulation value of your home. Foam roofing systems, for example, have an inherent insulating value that can reduce your cooling costs and help the environment by reducing the heat reflected off your roof.
Proper drainage, usually in the form of scuppers, are essential for proper maintenance of your flat roof. Without proper drainage, your flat roof can pond water and debris, which accelerate the breakdown of your roofing materials. This can void your manufacturer’s warranty and significantly reduce the life of your roofing system.
Additional Roof Protection
In addition to your roof covering, a protective waterproof coating will protect your roof investment and provide a longer life to your flat roofing system. Coatings come in many varieties, colors, and applications ranging from 5-10 years of protection. Coatings are a standard component of your flat foam roof systems, but can also be used in a number of roofing systems, such as modified. Coatings must be reapplied, and maintained properly to protect the roofing materials on your home. Call DFW Best Roofing at 817 381 6855 for more information.
Your roof deck provides the foundation for your roofing materials. The decking is sheets of wood (generally OSB or plywood) that are secured to the rafters of your home.
In some cases, the decking may need to be replaced if its integrity has been compromised, usually due to age and normal wear and tear. There are many reasons this can occur including; inadequate attachment of existing panels, sagging or ridging between supports, soft and wet panels, mold/mildew growth at panels, or delamination. You may be able to identify bad decking by simply walking on it or by looking at the underneath of your decking (if you can see it from your attic). Very often, however, you cannot determine the condition of your decking until your existing roof covering is removed.
Roofing DFW Best Roofing, uses only quality roofing materials, installed to manufacturer’s specifications. This provides you with not only a roof that will protect your home and family, but quality workmanship protecting one of your most valuable assets.
Parapet walls are the protective walls typically surrounding your flat roof. They can extend up just inches or can be 10 feet tall.
Foam Roofs Available in Fort Worth Dallas Roofs TX
Sprayed polyurethane foam (SPF) systems and coatings provide many benefits to homeowners. The two most prominent benefits are waterproofing/leak prevention and insulation value. Many additional benefits also exist, such as superior compressive strength, lightweight, self-flashing, durable, and long- lasting. Sprayed Polyurethane Foam is applied as a liquid using plural-component spray equipment to fill cracks and crevices. It then expands approximately 30 times its original liquid volume to form a hard, closed-cell monolithic roof surface. The Polyurethane Foam dries within seconds after application. Its expansion results in a weather-tight roofing membrane that is fully adhered to the substrate.
Because Polyurethane is lightweight, it adds little additional weight to the structure and is often used in remedial application (which means it can overlay an existing roofing system). Polyurethane Foam has a history of more than 35 years as a maintainable roofing medium and adds excellent insulation value to the structure; Utility bills can reflect the difference, some claim it may provide a reduction in energy cost of up to 25%. In addition, polyurethane foam is good for the environment as it can aid in reducing the heat island effect.
Flat Roof DFW Replacement
There will come a time in every commercial or industrial building’s life when it needs a flat roof replacement. A building is built to last for centuries with proper maintenance, but the best commercial roofing material has only decades, even with the recommended twice-annual inspections. Your roofing works year-around to protect your business from the elements while maintaining the ideal environment inside. When the time comes for that flat roof replacement, Baseys Roofing is the one to call.
When it comes to flat roof replacement, there are a variety of systems and materials available, all of which we have many years of experience in installing. Some of the most popular options for flat roof replacement are:
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Single-Ply Roofing
A relatively new type of roofing membrane, TPO has quickly become the most preferred membrane in the U.S. Durable and popular in “Green” building, TPO is a great choice for owners looking to gain LEED credits for their project and increase the energy efficient inside of their facilities.
Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer (EPDM) Roofing
EPDM “Rubber” roofing membrane has been a go-to for low-slope commercial roofing for more than 40 years. with up to a 30 year warranted lifespan and a projected lifespan of 50 years (at the top of the line) EPDM is a proven, hardy and cost-efficient material that can endure about anything Mother Nature can throw at it.
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Roofing
PVC roofing membrane, also known as vinyl roofing, has been a mainstay of commercial roofing for over 60 years and is a popular choice for restaurants and airports. PVC roofing is great in warmer climates, where a black roof in direct sun can cause an inside temperature increase of up to 90 degrees farenheit. A brilliant white PVC roof keeps it down between only 10-15 degrees. This makes for an excellent choice to conserve energy and keep your building’s costs low.
