Denver Flat Roofing – Flat Roofs and Low Slope Roofing

flat-roofA roof that is almost flat and is often seen on commercial buildings is referred to as a low-slope roof, or simply a flat roof. A Flat Roof can also be found on residential buildings and homes as well.  A flat roof really is a misnomer though, as no roof should technically be “flat”. It may appear to be a flat roof from the ground, but each roof should have a built-in slope to account for water drainage. Since there are very few residential homes with this type of flat roof system, most roofers are not equipped to work on them. Our crews are fully knowledgeable and trained on the unique and technical challenges that a flat roof can present, so give Denver Roofers Inc. a call.

Flat Roof Challenges

There are many technical challenges that can arise with a flat roofing system. These problems have to do with leak areas and the difficult process of finding them. A commercial roof should have absolutely no areas of standing water. Standing water on a flat roof is a sure sign of a problem and can be caused by sagging roof decking or poor draining planning.

To better serve our clients, our commercial sales representatives prepare a thorough “plan of action” for each individual project. This plan explains all of the flat roof options that are available when it comes to flat roofing material choices and which types suit your construction or restoration needs. When it comes to flat roofing, commercial or residential, our goal is to supersede your expectations!

Property owners are often convinced that repairing a flat roofing system is not the best options. We at Denver Roofers Inc. differ. We find that an effective repair done by a reputable company can save the owner money, time, and stress.

Most commercial flat roofing repairs take less than one business day to complete. When it comes to price, a repair is far cheaper than a replacement. Denver Roofers Inc. prides themselves on professionalism and guarantees their work. We offer free flat roofing inspections and damage evaluations and our estimates are valid for 60 days! Sometimes there are defective materials found on a flat roofing system; this does not mean that a total replacement is needed. It just means that a repair will fix the problem.

To maintain the integrity of your roof it’s important that damaged shingles or flashing materials be fixed as soon as possible. This will prevent water penetration and eventual wood rot that could lead to structural damage within the roof and property.

Flat roofing materials often require extensive repairs or replacements. A common problem occurs when the seams lose their adhesive bond and the surface of the material becomes damaged because of the heat and age. This is what results in the “alligator skin” appearance.

There are various methods for effectively repairing low sloped/no sloped roofs or flat roofing systems. Unfortunately it only takes one bad contractor for a property owner to realize how valuable a reputable reliable contractor is. This is why it is so important to check companies out before hiring them to do any project. Shop around and see what the competition is like. This way you are guaranteeing quality and professionalism.


Often times we are able to successfully repair a portion or the entire surface of a flat roof, however, moisture and structural evaluations must be done to ensure that a flat roofing system has not met the end of its useful life. Many times owners are convinced that their flat roof is un-repairable due to the lack of knowledge in today’s flat roofing restoration options for Low-Slope (flat roof) and Steep-Slope roofing. Denver Roofers Inc. will provide free estimates and damage inspections by one of our in-house licensed insurance adjusters (flat roof or otherwise) and are valid for a period of sixty (60) days, unless otherwise noted.
