More About Low-Slope Roofing Systems
So to learn more and better understand the intricacies regarding low slope roofing, here are answers to common questions we get from building owners.
Is there a difference between low slope and flat (no-pitch) roofs?
Ideally, no roof is completely flat. Usually, low slope and flat slope roofing bend slightly towards one direction to provide drainage functions. However, when it comes to the difference in slope, low-slope roofs have a steeper slope than flat roofs.
Flat roofs can have a slope of about 1” or slightly more while low-slope roofs can slope to about 2” or more. The goal is to create adequate pitch to drain water.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of low slope roofing?
There’s no doubt that low slope roofs are far safer than sloped roofs especially when it comes to inspections. Low slope roofs are also far stronger, durable, resistant to the effects of harsh weather, and affordable.
On the flip side, low sloped roofing tends to fall short whenever it snows because the ice just accumulates and sits on your roof until it’s warm enough for it to melt and drain away or until someone manually shoves it off.
Can low sloped roofs become leaky?
Despite choosing the best low-slope roofing experts to install your flat roof, there are external factors that can reduce the performance of your roof giving way to damage. For example, as a result of aging, prolonged sunlight exposure, and poor maintenance, low sloped roofs can develop issues such as ponding, sagging and drainage issues which, if left unchecked could lead to leaking.
This explains why you must procure frequent inspections and maintenance for your low sloped roofs. This way, you can root out issues in the bud and have them repaired promptly.
What is the best roofing type for a low sloped roof?
If the numbers are anything to go by, rubber roofs take first place in the list of most preferred roofing for commercial properties. It is much cheaper, doesn’t take long to install, it is not labor-intensive, it is easy to maintain, lasts longer, harsh weather proof, and is fire resistant.
In the long run, it all narrows down to what your needs and requirements are. Most clients usually find that their needs are met when they choose rubber roofing for their low-sloped roof projets.
What parts make up a complete low-sloped roof?
A low sloped roof mainly consists of three components. They include the deck, insulation, and the top membrane. Other minor components to complete the roofing structure include the flashing and the air and vapor retarders. Depending on the client’s demands these extra components can be left out.

During your free roofing inspection, one of our expert commercial roofing technicians will fully assess your roof. During this inspection, we will document all damage and observations, and present them to you to help you identify whether your roof’s life can be safely extended through repairs, or if a full replacement is required.
This answer depends on many variables. Each commercial roofing system is unique and has its own challenges, and factors that need to be considered. Some of the factors are: the size of your roof, accessibility to your roof, roofing material, and type of warranty you select.
This is another answer that truly depends, as every building is different. The most commonly installed commercial roofing systems in the Austin area are TPO roofs, built-up, commercial metal and single-ply. Our recommendation may differ based on whether you have a low-slope or flat roof.
