Low-Sloped (Flat) Roof Systems
Providing Low-Sloped Roof Systems for Kentucky and Beyond
No roof systems today are designed to be absolutely flat – they are all designed with some pitch so that water will flow to drains or gutters. So, what most people refer to as “flat” we in the industry call “low-sloped”. Low-sloped roofs can’t depend on water to flow in any particular direction, so the surface requires a watertight, monolithic membrane that stays watertight all the way to the drains or gutter edge. Steep-sloped roofs, on the other hand, depend on gravity to direct water to flow in a particular direction and “shed” over the roof’s breaks and fasteners in the shingles until it flows to the edge.
