Sloped Roofs Vs Flat Roofs

There’s a lot of different types of roofing materials and styles out there. One way to generally divide these different roof types is the distinction between sloped and flat roofs. Here, we’ll go over just what that difference is, and the benefits of sloped vs flat roofs.

Sloped

This is the kind of roof that you’ll generally find in residential neighborhoods. The sloped aspect, or angles of the roof, help to divert the flow of water off of the roof. If water pools up, it can cause a lot of damage.

Flat

This is the kind of roof that you’ll generally find on businesses. It gives room on top for extra storage or a roof mounted HVAC system. While technically called flat roofs, they have a slight angle for the same reason that sloped roofs do.
