Flat roofs are roofing systems that are often seen in areas that don’t experience much rain. This is because they tend to experience water accumulation and leakage issues if they aren’t outfitted with a proper drainage system and covered with a good waterproofing material. With that in mind, if you’re considering installing a flat roof for your property, it’s strongly recommended that you be cautious in its installation. In terms of materials, meanwhile, property owners can choose between two types: Built-Up Roofing (BUR) and single-ply roofing membranes.
Here, commercial and metal roofing expert Alpine Roofing Construction gives you a quick comparison between BUR and single-ply roofing membranes.
