Allstate Roofing & Remodeling offers roofing services for flat roofs. Flat roofs haven’t always had a good reputation. This is due to leaks that can occur during heavy rain. However, modern technology has extended the life of these roofs, especially thanks to the innovative materials they’re now made of and better construction methods. Understanding why a flat roof would leak (or have any other problem) makes it easier to correctly fix an existing roof so that the issue doesn’t repeat. Because of this understanding, over the last few years, the popularity of flat roofs has grown a lot, which is why we’re starting to see these roofs appear more in modern commercial and residential buildings, especially in the Southwest. Their distinctive look really has that desert feel to them, not to mention that there are a lot of benefits that comes with them. Flat roofs can have many advantages over sloped roofs, including:

Cost

Flat roofs are cheaper to construct and repair because they use less material and take up less space. They also don't require decorative elements.

Maintenance

Flat roofs are easier and safer to inspect and maintain because you don't have to worry about falling off.

Space

Flat roofs can create additional usable outdoor space, which can be ideal for gardens, barbecues, or games. They can also be used for roof deck construction. The versatility of a flat roof gives you a perfect place to relax and enjoy.

Energy efficiency

Flat roofs can help keep utility costs down, especially in warmer climates. They are a great design for the sun and heat of New Mexico.

Weather resistance

Flat roofs are less susceptible to wind damage than other types of roofs (this is a major advantage in a state that gets crazy winds three to six months out of the year). You can also apply professional solutions to increase their water and UV resistance, and reduce the risk of punctures. Considering the amount of sunlight New Mexico gets, flat roofs are a great option!

Versatility

Flat roofs can be used for many purposes, such as providing mechanical services, collecting water and energy, or creating attractive amenity spaces. A great example of this is that some homeowners turn their flat roofs into rooftop gardens. You literally can have an oasis in your home.

After

Allstate Roofing & Remodeling uses only the best materials for your flat roof. Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) single ply membrane is a more recent option for flat roofing and unlike PVC single-ply membrane, doesn't contain any chlorinated ingredients. It has proven itself to have excellent weathering properties. TPO roofs resist mold growth and guard against punctures and tears that lead to leaks. We can apply your TPO roof generally in a few days, depending on the size of your project.
