Should I slope my flat roof?

Sloping should be considered if the existing structure causes the roof to pond for a prolonged period of time. A general rule of thumb is that if the water evaporates within 72 hours this is generally acceptable. If ponding occurs for a prolonged period of time, and extra drainage cannot be added, then the extra cost for sloping a roof should be considered. In order for certain flat roofing systems to meet manufacturer’s extended warranties sloping is a must. Check with your particular material manufacturer if you have any doubts.


  • Dear James, Just a quick note to say how pleased I am with the tar and gravel roof you installed in our industrial multiplex. What a relief not to have to deal with complaining tenants. James, after meeting with other roofing specialists, it was your professional attitude and assessment that was key in our awarding the contract to Essential Flat Roofing Services. In addition, all the members of the Essential Flat Roofing Services team, from office staff to roof installers, were very accommodating and just nice people to deal with. Thanks again for a job well done. All the best to the Essential Flat Roofing Services team in the future.
