Flat Roof Repair, Replacement & Installation

Shanco: Your Roofing Expert in Maryland, Washington, DC & Virginia


Whether you need quality flat roof repair or are interested in flat roof installation for your home, you’ve come to the right place! Flat roofs are very different from sloped roofs and require different maintenance and repair. Although flat roofs are architecturally unique and can make your home stand out, they require proper maintenance and care.

Flat Roof Installation

If you’re building a new home and are in the process of deciding which type of roof to get, a flat roof could be perfect for you, particularly if you’re going for a modern look. Flat roofing is ideal for residential structures rather than commercial buildings, as it tends to become less stable as its size increases. There are many reasons homeowners opt for flat roofing, and these include:

  • Affordability – flat roofing is one of the less costly types of roofs to install.
  • Safety and accessibility – you can have anything from gardens to pools up on a flat roof!
  • No unusable space in your home – flat roofing eliminates unusable space on the upper level of your home that steeply sloped roofs often create.
  • Green design/energy savings – a flat roof is ideal for placing solar panels; they receive a lot of sunlight during the day! And with proper waterproofing, you can reduce your cooling costs!

Flat roof installation is definitely something you should consider if you’re looking to save some money and improve/maximize the interior of your home.

Flat Roof Repair

Do you need a quick (and proper) fix for a leak in your flat roof? Has your roof been damaged due to severe weather? Flat roofing is advantageous in several ways and can provide a distinguished sense of style to your home; however, flat roofs take quite a knocking when it comes to the weather.

Because they aren’t sloped, flat roofs are more exposed to direct sunlight and heavy rain, snow and hail. During a snowstorm, think of all the snow that piles up on your flat roof! This is why flat roof waterproofing is crucial. It will significantly help protect and extend the life of your roof – and save you lots of money!

Your flat roof can last a long time – provided it gets properly maintained and repaired. However, since flat roofs are sensitive to human traffic and a small crack can quickly turn into a leak if not fixed properly, it’s best to hire a professional roofing company instead of attempting to repair it yourself. This is where the flat roofing experts at Shanco Companies truly come in handy!

Flat Roof Replacement

The damage to your roof may be more extensive and require a whole roof replacement, and we can also help you with this. After replacing your flat roof, we’ll waterproof it as well so you can rest assured your roof will be fully protected and durable. Whatever your case is – whether you need a section of your flat roof repaired due to a leak or you need your whole roof replaced, don’t wait. The sooner you get a repair or replacement, the better – and the more money you’ll save!
