Best Roofing Material for Flat Roof

DIY Questions and Answer April 20, 2016 Sonia

Q: What’s the best roofing material to use for a flat roof?

A: For a flat or low-slope roof you’ll need a built-up roof, rubber or modified bitumen. Built-up roofing is applied with multiple layers of tar and felt paper. The surface layer is coated with lightweight stone or even seashells that help to reflect the sun’s rays and increase the longevity of the roof.
