Advantages of Flat Roofing in Northern Maryland
Flat roofs aren’t actually totally flat, and still have a slight pitch to them. They are sometimes called low-slope roofs. To install a flat roof, a roofing contractor uses a membrane system, or a roof covering that is installed on top of the roof and allows water to drain off and away from the home. The most common types of membrane systems for flat roofs in Northern Maryland are TPO and PVC, which are single-ply, and modified bitumen, which is built-up. Depending on the slope of the roof, even a flat roof may need to have shingles installed to prevent leaks. TPO and PVC roofing can last up to 30 years if it is installed correctly and is well-maintained. Modified bitumen can last up to 15 years.
It may be harder to locate leaks on flat roofs, so regular inspections and maintenance are key to ensuring your roof lasts as long as possible. One key advantage of a flat roof is that it is much easier to install skylights in it, so you can allow a lot of natural light into the home. Flat roofs are also the most energy-efficient type of roofing available because they are UV reflective, especially TPO and PVC roofing, so you could end up saving money on your heating and cooling bills over time!
Other unique advantages of flat roofing are:
- Reliable and durable
- Easy to install
- Last 15-30 years with proper maintenance and repairs
- Can stand up to extreme weather conditions
- Easier to install HVAC units
- Most energy-efficient type of roofing
- East to clean and maintain
- Offer long warranty periods
- Allow a lot of natural light into home
- Protect exterior of home
Maintaining Flat Roofs
Flat roofs are very easy to maintain, and when you invest in bi-annual roofing inspections from a qualified roofing contractor, you can quickly discover problems and repair them before they become bigger and more costly. With the right maintenance and care, a flat roof can last up to 15-30 years before you need a new roof installation. The main things you need to look out for when you’re inspecting and assessing your flat roof are leaks, standing water, debris buildup, and clogged gutters. You should inspect your roof seasonally, particularly after extreme weather, temperature fluctuations, and storms. Be sure to:
- Remove debris and plant material from roof
- Check for signs of pest and animal infestation or damage
- Clean and clear gutters regularly
- Look for leaks
- Repair issues immediately
- Don’t put unnecessary weight on the roof
- Trim trees and remove overhanging obstructions
Flat Roof Repairs vs. New Roofing
Choosing roof repair over a new roof installation depends on the age of your roofing, type of membrane, extent of the damage, general climate or temperature in your region, and the quality of previous work done as well as how much maintenance the roof has had in its lifetime. After completing a full roof assessment, our experienced, licensed roofing contractors can make a recommendation as to whether it will be more cost-effective for you to choose roofing repairs or roof replacement.
Our repair costs for roofing start at $1,000 to show up and assess walkable flat roofs, with the first two hours included, and $125 per additional hour, plus materials and 20%. Hose tests and leak tracking is $800 and tarps and covering starts at $650. These repair costs can be applied to new roof replacements within 90 days after work is finished.

What People Say About Us
They are definitely at the top of my list of companies i have dealt with. I had to have siding repair done and install new roof shingles. They worked hard and got the job done fast; in 1 day! Thank you to you and your crew. You did a great job roofing my home. You and your crew were professional, courteous, and had a general concern of my satisfaction that far exceeded expectations. Thank you again.
I had them do a whole new roof for me and i cannot express how happy I am with the work that they did! The pricing was reasonable compared to their quality of work, which was OUTSTANDING! They were very personable, friendly, and respectful, which sadly is hard to come by these days. I would absolutely recommend Harford Roofing Services!
We had a big storm come by and blow some shingles off the roof. We called a few companies, some who didn’t even show! Not only did Harford Roofing Services show up, they did a temporary seal with a tarp until we could go through their financing options to get a full roof. I highly recommend them as they were patient and kept us in communication the whole time.
