The Many Benefits of Residential Flat Roofing
Flat roofing is a sensible choice for both residential and commercial buildings. While many houses have slanted roofing to improve water runoff, there are many benefits to flat roofing in Toronto.
Let’s take a look at some of the upsides of this modern and highly functional roofing style and why it might be the best option for your home.
Easy Access and Space Utilization
One of the biggest benefits of having a flat roof is that it is very easy to access. Whether you need to get on a roof for relatively easy maintenance or repairs or to install equipment, a flat roof’s accessibility can make it safer and simpler to inspect and fix issues that may arise with the structure.
Moreover, flat roofs provide a useful area for the installation of equipment such as air conditioning units, solar panels, satellite dishes, and more. The versatility of a flat roof allows these items to be installed with ease and in a discreet manner, while also providing ample access for installation and maintenance personnel.
Passes Residential Restrictions
Flat roofs allow for the construction of a home’s third storey where there are residential height restrictions in place. If a house had a sloped roof third storey, it would be too tall. However, building with a flat roof places the house within the neighbourhood’s height specifications.
Flat roofs are versatile spaces that can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Some people might even choose to plant a garden or grass on their flat roofs, while others might choose to use the flat roofing space as an outdoor living or recreational space. There are many ways that a flat roof can be used, and its modern and minimalistic appearance provides a visually appealing complement to modern architectural house designs.
