Affordable Commercial Roofing in St. Louis
– The Best Roof for Your Building or Business
Most commercial buildings have flat roofs. Flat roofing is a common choice for several reasons. Commercial buildings don’t typically need the extra attic space a sloped roof provides, and flat, commercial roofs allow building owners to place HVAC systems and more on the roof, out of the way of foot traffic. This means flat roofs often need to be accessed by workers to repair HVAC systems, skylights, and other items.
Flat roofs require different roofing materials than residential homes. Though flat roofs do have a slight slope, water doesn’t flow as easily off them. Flat roofing systems are typically layered to provide insulation, protection against the elements, and an incredibly watertight, mold-resistant finish. Many flat roofing materials also come in light colors to reflect sunlight and reduce energy bills.
Only the most experienced commercial roofers can give your business superior protection with the latest commercial roofing materials.

Flat Roof / Low Slope
A flat roof, also known as a low slope roof, is a roof that has a slope of less than 2:12, meaning it rises less than 2 inches for every 12 inches of horizontal distance. Flat roofs are commonly found on commercial and industrial buildings, but can also be used on residential structures.
