Flat Roofing in Illinois
For Quality Service, Choose Rooftop Designs
When you think of the average house, you probably think of a traditional roof with sloped planes that deflect water away. However, they are not the only type of roof used to protect buildings. Flat roofs are typically seen in commercial applications, but they are also growing in popularity for homes across the country. This is particularly true for homes designed with modern architectural styles that rely on hard geometric shapes, including boxes and rectangles. Believe it or not, flat roofs actually have a number of advantages over sloped roofing, including more cost-effective protection, stronger structure, and even the possibility for ancillary uses.
If the roof over your head is flat or has a very small slope, the Illinois flat roofing team at Rooftop Designs can help you with all of your service needs.

We Service All Types of Flat Roofing
Contrary to generally-held belief, a “flat” roof isn’t actually “flat.” A perfectly flat roof isn’t all that practical—any water that fell on it would simply sit there and not have anywhere to go. Standing water is a huge problem, as it wears away materials and causes leaks to form. To solve this problem, a flat roof is typically installed with an extremely low amount of slope—usually around a quarter-inch of height change per foot of length.
While flat roofs offer a number of benefits over traditional sloped roofs, their lack of slope means they have to be built to overcome a few additional challenges and obstacles in their design. Rooftop Designs offers self-adhering flat roofing systems that are built to withstand a whole host of challenges from weather to wear and tear and more. Looking to utilize your roof space for a garden or hang out spot? We can make that possible. Looking for a place you can safely mount high-powered air conditioners for your building? We build roofs that provide exceptional support and protection.
We offer state-of-the-art flat roofing products and systems, including:
- Modified Bitumen: A type of roofing surface that is rolled on using a blowtorch that secures the roofing material, modified bitumen is cost effective, energy efficient and easy and quick to install.
- Built-Up Roof: These types of roofs are made of tar and gravel that is built up layer by layer into an effective moisture barrier. Built-up roofs (or BURs) are one of the most popular flat roof design plans because they’re an efficient insulator, durable, and generally aesthetically pleasing. However, they are heavy and require a pretty substantial structure to support.
- EPDM: Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) is a type of synthetic rubber roofing made from a mixture of recycled materials that are durable, affordable, and easy to install. Opt for spray-applied EPDM roof products to avoid the risk of seams pulling away.
- Metal: Metal roofing like aluminum is excellent if you’re looking for durability and energy efficiency. In addition to protection, they also reflect heat from the sun, which keeps energy costs down.
We also offer installation of spray-applied roof coatings that improve durability and longevity of your roof! These products seal and protect your flat roof from water damage by covering the seams in EPDM roofs for added longevity. Application is tedious but when sprayed correctly it increases your flat roof’s life expectancy.
Our rooftop products meet ENERGY STAR requirements for cool roofs, and some can even help you save money on energy bills, taxes, and overhead operating expenses for your business! No matter what you need, we will make sure you are thrilled with the service you receive when the job is done. We even offer repairs for all types of flat roofing as well, including roofing systems that we have installed as well as those that were installed previously.
