Got a Flat Roof? Learn More about Tapered Roof Insulation
A flat roof presents different challenges from a sloped roof. The biggest challenge is preventing water from puddling or pooling on the roof. Water that sits on a roof can eventually seep through because it has nowhere else to go, and this can cause leaks in the ceiling. Because of this, most flat roofs have a very minor slope to them. If your flat roof does not have a minor slope to it, a roofing contractor may recommend that you use tapered roof insulation to create a minor slope when new roofing materials are being installed.
