Flat Roofing from Experienced Roofers in Toronto
Commonly found on large buildings, flat roofing is usually more accessible than sloped roofing, making it more convenient for roofing repairs and for installing things such as satellites, rooftop gardens, and even solar panels. While it may not be as aesthetically pleasing as other types of roofing, flat roofing helps people take advantage of additional space, which is especially useful if you have a limited amount of available yard or interior space. DVR Roofing specializes in installing 2-ply flat roofing in the Greater Toronto Area, including Vaughan, Markham, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, Newmarket, and beyond.

Many Practical Benefits of Flat Roofing for Your GTA Home
When it comes to flat roofing, few roofing companies in Toronto are as experienced as DVR Roofing. Our roofing company has over 30 years of combined expertise in the field to bring Toronto roofing that takes it to the next level without top-tier pricing. Whether you’re building a new home or renovating an existing condo, flat roofing offers many practical benefits for homeowners and property managers in Southern Ontario. Some of the advantages of flat roofing vs. sloped roofing include the following:
- Durability– If properly installed and maintained, flat roofing has been known to last over 30 years. Nobody enjoys replacing a roof before it’s time, so that’s good news for those looking to make a lengthy investment.
- Affordability – Flat roofing is one of the most affordable roofing options available because it doesn’t require any additional decorative elements. Many flat roof repairs in Toronto are also relatively inexpensive when compared to other types of roofing. Some flat roof repairs can even be completed efficiently by do-it-yourselfers, although for safety reasons, we don’t encourage this unless you’ve been trained in construction or roofing.
- Easy Maintenance – Because flat roofing offers convenient access to the gutters and siding, as well as the roof itself, it’s easy to maintain. There’s also far less danger of someone falling off a flat roof than a sloped one, making it the safest roofing option for maintenance by far.
- Less Obstruction– If you’re especially proud of your landscaping or building’s location, flat roofing offers far less visual obstruction to other buildings and elements around it. That’s why many types of businesses and multi-family residential dwellings in bigger cities such as Toronto favour it over other roofing alternatives.
Most Common Types of Flat Roof Repair We See in Toronto
Our roofers at DVR Roofing specialize in flat roof repair for Toronto-area homes and businesses, including urgent roof leak repairs. Roof leak repairs are one of the most common repair issues we see, as well as one of the most detrimental problems for a flat roof because the water has nowhere to go. Because pools of standing water can lead to mold growth and other structural issues, it’s imperative to inspect your flat roof regularly and address leaks as quickly as possible.
Other common repair issues for flat roofs include a phenomenon known as “alligatoring” and buckles in the shingles. “Alligatoring” occurs when the roof’s shingles crack and bubble, looking very similar to the weathered skin of an alligator. Once this happens, it’s usually time for a flat roof replacement. Flat roof repairs may also include dealing with cracks in the roof or expanding flashing due to the region’s seasonal changes and precipitation levels.
