The new year is coming, and you’ve got great plans for your home. Alternatively, if you’re a homeowner building your house from the ground, you might want alternative ideas for your new home’s design.
If you haven’t considered it yet, a flat roof might work for your design sensibilities. Here are five reasons you might want to consider using a modern flat roof for your new home.
Expanded Room Space
Low-slope roofs give you a rectangular-shaped house most of the time, especially if it’s a two-story property. Therefore, you can maximize the interior spaces, allowing you to have extra rooms, simultaneously serving as an attic.
Your expanded roof space can work as a storage area, exercise and physical training zone, or an entertainment room for you and your children. Whichever your plans, you’ve maximized the vertical real estate of your property.
Overall House Aesthetic Curb Appeal
In many cases, the roof makes up the majority of your property’s curb appeal. With flat-roofed properties, your entire home plays an enormous role in holding its curb appeal. By changing your sidings, color combinations, or the subtle, modern property look, you’ll have a house that has exceptional curb appeal.
Plus, you won’t have to worry about the roofing material’s aesthetic. As long as you have beautiful sidings, exterior aesthetics, and design, you’ll always have an excellent curb appeal supporting your property’s value.
Rooftop Gardens or Events Area
A flat roof opens up your roof to numerous options, such as your rooftop leisure area, garden, or function area. You can invite friends to spend a celebration night on your roof. Alternatively, you can ask your children to go stargazing in the darkest of nights conveniently on your flat rooftop.
Roof gardens offer property owners the most benefit because plants can insulate the roof and your home’s interior. In doing so, you can save on utilities in effectively preserving the property interior’s temperature. Plus, it provides added value and curb appeal to your property too.
A Great Variety of Roofing Materials to Choose From
Commercial and corporate properties share the same development materials, such as EPDM, TPO, or PVC. Each one has specific pros and cons.
For example, EPDM is an inexpensive roofing solution, making it accessible. However, it has poor insulating capabilities because of its black color. On the other hand, TPO can introduce better insulation thanks to its UV-reflective colors and better materials. Again, TPO is much more expensive than EPDM.
PVC is a resin-based roof that requires torching to establish a seamless barrier throughout your roof. This roofing material is tough and has a strength of 300 pounds per inch, making it one of the best flat roofing materials on the market.
