If you are in the market for a new roof, you want to make sure you consider all the available options. For example, if you opt for a pitched roof, you can choose from a variety of styles and materials. Flat roofs are an alternative to pitched roofs and come in many designs.

Both pitched roofs and flat roofs require maintenance on a regular basis. Pitched roofs may be more difficult to both clean and inspect, but flat roofs will need more maintenance throughout their lifetime. This is due to the fact flat roofs are not as effective at draining water. Drains on flat roofs get clogged and unless dealt with on a regular basis, will lead to leaks and damage. Flat roofs also require a waterproof seal that must be maintained to ensure no leakage. These are points to keep in mind when considering which type of roof to get for your home.

If you feel confident in maintaining a flat roof, you will be pleased to know that they are cheaper than pitched roofs. But beware, if you live an an area with significant rainfall, any savings you made choosing a flat roof may very well go down the drain in maintenance and repair costs. Taking this into consideration, it might be more affordable in the long run to choose a pitched roof. The bottom line is if you live in an arid area, a flat roof might be your best bet.
