Owning a home or building with a low sloped roof can be veryproblematic for many real-estate investors. Locating a roof leak on a flat roofcan be a big challenge because the water can stream underneath the roofingmembrane a long ways before finding an area to enter the structure.
Because of ponding water a flat roof can wear much fasterthan steep sloped roof. Most asphalt low sloped applications require some kindof reflective UV protection to preserve the asphalt and keep it fromdeteriorating. An aluminum coating maintenance system is necessary for allsmooth surface asphalt applications with no gravel. Membrane systems such assmooth surface roll roofing, smooth torch down and hot tar BUR systems with nogravel require a heavy coat of aluminum every three to five years. If an aluminumcoating maintenance plan is not conducted on these types of roof systems itwill deteriorate much faster from the sun and they will be compromisedprematurely.
Also many asphalt application are installed using a ballastgravel system. The gravel helps reflect the harmful UV rays from the sun andhelps anchor down the membrane. Many EPDM and TPO roofs are also applied usinga ballast system. Using a ballast rock system will make the job less expensivein most cases because the labor is done much faster and it saves on adhesiveproducts and other chemicals. Adhesives like TPO glue can cost up to onehundred and fifty dollars per five gallon bucket. You only get about threehundred square feet of coverage out of each five gallon bucket.
A fully chemically adhered low sloped roofing system is thebest application standard but it also is the most expensive. A fully adheredroofing system can withstand extreme high wind gusts from any storm ifinstalled properly. A fully adhered roof system also is a very light weightroofing system which is better for the roof structure.
Proper drainage is also essential for a low sloped roofbecause water can puddle causing a roof to collapse. Also ponding water is badfor the roof membrane and can cause algae growth and mold to form. If the wateraccumulates too high it can flood a home or building because it can overflowovertop of flashing curbs or wall flashing. Just about every popular roofsystem in the industry is not designed to have large amounts of ponding water.All drains and scuppers should be inspected and cleaned on a regular basis.Snow and Ice removal maybe require each winter on low sloped roofs in somenorthern areas.
