A Full Selection of Flat & Low Slope Roofing Options for Nashville

Having a flat and low-sloped roofs means special considerations must be made that pitched roofs do not require.  The angle (lack of one) on these types of roofs, means they do not shed water as a pitched roof will. Due to this angle issue, flat and low-sloping roofs take on more water adding up to wear over time.  So, the type of roofing materials chosen for this type of roof must be able to withstand an excess of standing water. Some of the most common types of flat/low-slope roofing materials include single layer membrane, modified bitumen, and built-up roof materials.

Flat/Low Slope Roofs- Single & Double Layer Membrane

Single layer membrane roofing is, like the name implies,  a single layer of roofing membrane stretched across the complete expanse of a roof. These membranes come in many different materials, of which synthetic rubber (called EPDM) is the most common. Another type of low-slope material is modified bitumen roofing. This is a polymer-reinforced roofing layer, also called a cap sheet.  Every application of modified bitumen roofing is customized to match the individual material and roof type and here at United Roofing Pros, we know how to get the perfect match. This is exclusive because of our breadth of experience in flat and low slope roofing.
