Residential Flat & Low Slope Roofing
Flat and low-slope roofing have long been used in residential roofing for a variety of purposes and can generally be classified into two categories: small- and large-scale applications. Small-scale applications are common with houses in this area and include porches and overhangs in addition to garages and other transitions where the roof slope changes dramatically from one section to the next. Large-scale applications are closer to commercial usage and are often found on apartment buildings, condominiums, row houses, and townhouses. Our team of skilled roofers provides a full range of flat roof repair and maintenance services.
Common Flat Roofing Issues
Exposure is the number one concern with any roof, but with a flat roof, ponding water and snow and ice accumulation are big concerns that can lead to a wide range of issues. Ponding water is perhaps the most prevalent problem. All roofs, even so-called flat roofs, will have some degree of incline, but it’s often slight and prone to disruptions in how well it drains. This is why it’s important to have a flat roof regularly inspected and any necessary maintenance carried out as soon as possible. Another common cause of flat roof repairs is punctures, which can happen during a bad storm, or even splits and tears that can develop over time. Exposure can lead to shrinkage. Structural movement can lead to expansion. You also have to watch for the accumulation of debris, biological growth, and blistering due to sun damage.
Reasons for Flat Roof Repair
- Leaks and Moisture Inside
- Pooling Water

- Cracked Roof Structure
- Buckled or Bubbling Sections

We will do everything possible to meet your budget and will even work with your homeowner’s insurance to ensure that you can afford the new roof you require and receive the reimbursement you deserve. There are also financing options for your roof replacement project. We promise to always use high-quality roofing materials and to provide complete workmanship and material warranties.
Types of Flat Roofing We Repair
Emmons offers flat roofing repair for all manner of flat roofing systems that are used for residential applications in this region. Those include EPDM, TPO, and BUR.
EPDM (Single-Ply Rubber)
EPDM is a synthetic rubber that is particularly effective as a roofing material because it withstands harsh environments due to superior resistance to weather, heat, steam, and ozone.
TPO is not quite as resistant as EPDM and doesn’t last as long, but it provides superior protection against punctures and is therefore the material of choice when that is a primary concern.
Built-Up Roofing (BUR)
Built-up roofing has been used in the U.S. for low slope roofs for more than 100 years, and it provides excellent protection against UV rays and avoids many leaking vulnerabilities while requiring little maintenance.
Emmons is not just a residential roofing contractor. We are also among the leading commercial contractors in the region, and many area commercial building owners count on us for our flat roof repair services. Our team repairs and replaces EPDM, TPO, and BUR in addition to flashing. We perform gutter maintenance and repairs and can correct all manner of commercial roof problems that are due to leaking, poor ventilation, storm damage, people walking on the roof, and so forth.
If flat roof repair isn’t practical because the existing flat roof is too old or the cost of the repair is too expensive, Emmons can replace your roof instead. We have a team of roofers that specialize in residential flat roof installation in addition to project consultants who can help you choose the flat roofing system that is going to provide the best return on your investment. We can upgrade you to a new version of the roofing system you currently have, but, if necessary, we can convert your home to a flat roofing system that will provide you with better protection.
