flat roofYou might think that flat roofs are only used in commercial roofing, but the truth is that many modern homes are built with flat roofs as part of their design in residential roofing.

We are dedicated to giving you the best roof possible and the best customer service, from flat roof installation to full flat roof repair.

Flat Roof Replacement Costs

Flat roofs are more likely to get damaged because dirt and debris can pile up easily on the flat surface, and the lack of a slope makes it harder for water to flow off the roof. In other words, a flat roof won’t last as long as a roof with a slope, and it can fail in as little as ten years.

If the roof is too damaged to fix, you will have to hire a local roofing company to replace it. When you get a flat roof replacement, you’ll spend the same amount of money on materials and labor.

Instead of measuring by the foot, some roofing contractors may charge by the square. A roofing square is usually 100 square feet, and each one costs between $250 and $350 to install. The total cost of replacing a flat roof also depends on things like removing and getting rid of old roofing materials, adding more layers of underlayment, and adding ventilation and roof drains.

Different Kinds of Flat Roofing

Flat roofs are usually made of metal, EPDM, built-up, or modified bitumen.

Flat metal roofs are the most common, and they are usually made of aluminum, which is a very durable material. This material lasts more than thirty years and reflects heat, so it’s an energy-efficient choice. As for the downsides, you can’t put any other kind of roofing on top of a metal flat roof, as you could with asphalt shingles. So, if the roof needed to be redone, the whole thing would have to come down and be replaced.

EPDM, or ethylene propylene diene monomer, flat roofs are just a fancy way of saying that they are made of a synthetic rubber blend. It’s a durable and affordable flat roofing option that’s most often used for big office buildings. EPMD flat roofs are easy to install, but they often leak. So, it’s important that the people who install flat roofs spray protective sealant on the seams. These coatings will add to the cost, but they are well worth it to keep water damage from happening.

Built-up flat roofs are made of a mixture of tar and gravel. This choice has become popular because they look nice, save energy, and are very durable due to the many layers. There are some problems, though. Layers of built-up flat roofing can make it very heavy, so your home will need a thorough inspection to make sure the structure can handle the weight. Also, the installation process creates a dangerous area, so you won’t be able to live in your house during the renovation.

Flat roofs made of modified bitumen are inexpensive, but they aren’t used very often because they are hard to install. Because a blowtorch is used to secure this flat roofing, only experienced flat roofing contractors should install it. For most people, the risks outweigh the cost of a flat roof, but if you’re willing to take the chance, it’s a great way to save money.

Reasons to Install Flat Roofing

Flat roofing isn’t very common, but that’s one of the main reasons people choose it. You’ve probably seen celebrity-designed houses with modern floor-to-ceiling windows and sleek flat roofs. These are the kinds of unique properties that will benefit from a sturdy flat roof.

People may also choose flat roofing because it uses less energy. Due to their large surface area, they are a great choice for people who want to use solar energy to power their homes. Also, many of these roofing options reflect heat to keep your energy costs low.

Flat roofs have problems, just like everything else. Since these roofs don’t have a slope for water to run off of, for example after a storm, it’s common for water to build up in one spot or another. Plus, they are usually made of a more porous material than, say, clay roof tiles, which makes them even more vulnerable to water damage.

The best roofers in the Detroit area. They provide excellent customer service and were very helpful in making my decision. I would recommend them to my friends and family without hesitation. My experience with Detroit Roofers has been a pleasure from start to finish. After having several estimates done for my roof, I decided to use the services of this roofing company in Detroit because they were the most competitively priced but also had a great reputation for their customer service. The crew was quick, professional, and did an amazing job of installing a new metal roof on my house in just one day! It's great knowing that they have such high standards that make me feel confident about their workmanship when it comes to protecting my home.

I had no idea having a roof replacement in Detroit could be so simple. They agreed to come out the next day to give me a price, immediately scheduled me in, and rebuilt the roof in less than a day and a half. The crew was incredibly accessible via phone and text. I appreciate that they acknowledged I was under a tight timeline and did all they could to cooperate with me and assist me accomplishing that target. Thank you so much for taking care of my needs! I definitely recommend Detroit Roofers!

Our house now has a new roof thanks to Detroit Roofers. Their crew was excellent. Hardworking, professional, respectful, and great at safeguarding furniture and shrubbery about the house, as well as cleaning up after the project was complete. The work was completed in a single day, and the roof looks amazing. Derrick did an excellent job of overseeing the project from start to end. I would refer them to anyone in the Detroit area who is in need of roofing services.

My partner and I were anxious about our roof project due to it being the first big item we had to worry about the safety of with the house as younger, first-time property owners. Detroit Roofers was fantastic to work with and helped make the process a breeze!! They were always on time for all of it, always responded quickly, and took the time to inform and educate me in detail what I didn't understand. Dave and his crew did a tear off (including some cedar shake areas), relocated our kitchen vent, replaced some sub-decking, and finished the new shingling just in time for some rain. The team was extremely professional, quick, and efficient in all aspects of the project! My partner and I will always suggest them as the go-to roofing contractors in Detroit to anyone we know who is looking for one. Thank you once more, gentlemen!

David and Detroit Roofers were an absolute pleasure to work with. Communication was straightforward and professional. They were patient when it came to negotiating the final bill for wind damage repairs with my insurance provider and credit union. His crew did an excellent job and picked up after themselves. I highly recommend these Detroit roofing contractors!!

David responded quickly to our request for a quote. We had a large roof that needed to be replaced, as well as gutter replacement. It was an older house in the Detroit suburbs with some rotting wood, but David had foreseen this and had new wood on hand. The issue was worse than expected, but he and his crew had extra wood there right away. New vents were installed, but first he explained that having more than one vent would be ideal for proper airflow. He also addressed all of our concerns and questions. The crew was fantastic, and clean-up was done every night. We are very satisfied with the work that was completed and would highly suggest him to anyone who needs to replace or repair their roof. Thank you so much, Detroit Roofers!!
