To be considered a flat roof, a roof must have a 2/12 pitch or lower (2′ of rise over 12′ length). The single most important feature of a flat roof system is the ability to hold standing water. Flat roofs are more than just a covering for your home – a flat roof can be used as an outdoor living space, becoming a deck or patio.
