Pitch Flat Roof
Homeowner wanted to pitch the flat roof on their back porch roof. The porch had been converted to living space and was under a/c. We remove the existing roof material and installed 2×8 sleepers to pitch the flat roof for a positive roof drain. We also allowed for ac ducting into room underneath. Once the sleepers were installed we applied 4×8 4ply cdx plywood. The roof material was self-adhered Flintlastic by Certainteed. Now no water sits on roof which caused leak issues over time. As general contractors we can build and install systems other roofers cannot do with their roof license only. There are many options available for the homeowner when it comes to pitching flat roofs. For years Florida Roofing and Renovations Inc has been converting flat roofs to pitched roof using trusses or by hand framing rafters.
Taper Roof Systems
There are other ways to pitch a flat roof such as taper roof systems made of ISO board. They come in 1/8″ and 1/4″ per foot pitch. The boards can also add some insulating R value to the roof as well. Depending on the conditions and expense Florida Roofing and Renovations can install the right system for the homeowner.
