Pros of Concrete Flat Roofing

Consider some of the more notable advantages of concrete flat roofing.

 

Durability

A concrete flat roof can be an advantageous long-term investment due to its durability. Concrete is made up of a combination of sand, cement, and water that dries into a solid and durable material. We see concrete all over, from sidewalks and driveways to bridges and roadways. Concrete has the ability to resist high impact from harsh elements like hailstorms, high winds, and other extreme weather conditions.

 

Fire-Resistant

Protect your commercial property by investing in a concrete flat roof that is fire resistant. Concrete does not catch fire and can help prevent the spread of fire. In emergency situations, a fire-resistant concrete flat roof offers commercial property owners better peace of mind. Fire-resistant flat roofs are also beneficial in areas where commercial buildings are close together.

 

Easy Repairs

Invest in a concrete flat roof for low maintenance and easy repairs. When you choose a commercial roofing structure that requires less upkeep, you can spend less time and money on repairs. Concrete flat roofing typically involves lower maintenance, especially compared to some other flat roofing options. However, all repairs and maintenance should always be performed by a professional.

Cons of Concrete Flat Roofing

All commercial roofing options will have their disadvantages, including concrete flat roofing. A concrete flat roof is not waterproof, and while it can protect against the elements, concrete can absorb moisture over time. This could lead to leakage problems and water damage. Surfaces like concrete that retain moisture also make it possible for plant, fungi, and molds to grow. Poor installation or lack of maintenance and repairs can also compromise the integrity of a concrete flat roof.
