How Does A Flat Roof Work?
A steep slow roof (usually the roof of a shingle) relies on gravity so that water flows in one particular direction so that it can “shed” water in the shingles over breaks and fasteners until it flows to the rim. The water must not flow in either direction in the low-sloped roof or the flat roof, so that it must form a water-tight, monolithic membrane which is watertight throughout the drains or border.
A constant membrane covering is used for modern, low-lying roofs to be better able to withstand standing water pools. These membranes are used as ongoing sheets, connected to heat soldering or to sticks. Sealed metal roofs with copper or tin include a more costly low slope or flat roof option. These are soldered metal panel interlocking systems.

Low pitch rooftop roofs would traditionally use the built in roof (“tar and gravel”), but the performance, price and environmental problems of this traditional form of roofing require higher quality alternatives today.
A low-slope / flat roof must also resist expansions & contractions and stay 100% water resistant and the performance in wind, freeze-thaw cycling & sun radiation needs to be considered. To satisfy this performance requirement, well-engineered installation, seaming and weathering features are required.
