A roof is considered a low slope if over the course of 12 inches the roof rises under 2 inches.

Types of Low Slope Roofing

The first of which being that it is more water resistant than a higher sloped roof. It has to be. Steeper roofs allow water to trickle down the slope and into gutters. A more flat roofing system has a full area membrane that is water tight. 


Single-ply roofing made of a reflective rubber, reduces heat absorption and reduces energy costs.


EPDM membranes are resistant to thermal shock, weathering, abrasion, and are flexible in low temperatures.


PVC roofing membranes are noted for their strength and have a minimum breaking strength of 350 pounds per inch.
