  5. is a flat roof a good idea
Asked: 2019-02-27 05:19:54
We are in the process of designing our home. We know the design of the interior of the house but are debating about whether we want to have a pitched roof or a flat roof. Is a flat roof a good idea for a residential home or should I stick with the classic design of a flat pitched roof?

When we were planning our house design we saw on description that sloped roofs last longer than flat roofs. We didn’t want to have to replace our roof every 10 years and thus You have to think about more than just the way that the roof looks when deciding which option is best for your home.

Both options have their benefits. Sloped roofs often last a lot longer than flat roofs, but flat roofs are easier for you to repair on your own if issues do arise. A flat roof is ideal for those who want a house that’s as eco-friendly as possible. The flat roof also makes it easy to maintain a consistent temperature in a home.

If you live in an area where winter weather is common, a flat roof may not be a good idea. Snow and ice can be very heavy and if you have a flat roof the snow and ice can collect on it. This can lead to a roof collapse because the snow and ice cannot easily slide off of the roof as it melts.

All you have to consider is the storage that you want to have available in your house and how you want it to look after it’s done being built. A sloped work creates additional storage space in your home that you may not be able to get with a flat roof.

If you want a home that is as energy efficient as possible, a flat roof is a good option to consider. It costs far less to heat or cool a flat roof because there isn’t a lot of open space in the roof like there is with a sloped roof that’s common on most residences.
