Flat roofs are unique roofing systems and have special needs compared to more common roofing methods. Flat roofs must be installed with multiple layers of high-strength roofing underlayments. Many of these underlayments are fiberglass-backed and heavyweight in order to increase roof strength. The top layer of a flat roof must also be extremely resistant to weather and sunlight since it has nothing protecting it like other roofing systems.
The new code requires that residential roofs be installed with a slight pitch in order to promote water drainage. Be wary of any roofing company that tells you that your roof does not need to be pitched. This is their way to cut costs on your roof increasing their profits and giving you a substandard roof. At Embick Enterprises we will properly bid your roof including the tapered material needed to shed water according to Florida Building Codes.
