There are plenty of reasons why flat roofing is a popular choice for commercial roofs.
Most houses in Charlotte, North Carolina have sloped roofs with asphalt shingles, but commercial roofs vary much more significantly. One of the most common options for commercial roofs is flat roofing, and one of the primary reasons that this system of roofing has become so popular is that it is an affordable option. It can be significantly less expensive than a pitched roof because it requires fewer materials and uses materials that are cheaper to manufacture.
Another reason that flat roofing is a common choice for commercial buildings is that these buildings need large HVAC systems to maintain a comfortable temperature inside, especially during the hot and humid summers. It would be hard to fit all the components of these large HVAC systems inside the structure, and flat roofing creates the perfect place to put this equipment. The usable space created by flat roofing can also be used for the storage of other items at times.
Flat roofing is also easier to clean than other types of roofing, mostly because it is easier to access and safer to work on top of, compared to sloped options.
