Roofs, aside from providing protection to the residents of a building, have variations with regard to their construction, durability, and materials used. An important feature of a roof is the pitch or its slope, as this enables water to properly drain down from it. There are two types of roofs that are distinct when it comes to their angles as pitched roofs have a higher slope, and then there are flat roofs, which actually have a maximum angle of 10 degrees, despite their classification of being “flat.”
Since flat roofs have a lower degree of elevation, it generates more problems compared to high-sloped roofs, particularly those that are poorly installed and not well-maintained. An article from TheHelpfulEngineer.com outlined the prevailing problems that arise from this specific roof type and how it is kept in good working condition.
