Flat Roof Repairs

Does your home have a flat roof that might need repairs? A flat roof refers to a roof with very little steepness(pitch) to it. Also known as a low slope roof, this type of roof is considered a walkable roof since most homeowners would say they could walk on it.

Residential homes may have flat roofs on the main part of the house, patio covers and carports. 

Low slope roofing invites problems with ponding, compressed insulation, and major ultraviolet (UV) ray degradation from baking in the California sun.  Having ponding water can also lead to algae growth in the cooler months.
