Choosing the best type of roofing for a home or a business facility may not be as simple as some people think. Because there are several different types of roofing that people can make their selections from, it is very important that everyone does their homework before making their final choices. This is particularly important when it comes to determining which quality roofing solution is better: the flat or the pitched roof. With this in mind, here’s some information about quality roofing options that people should know about: 

One of the first things that a home or business owner should know is the definition and explanation of both types of roof. For those who are just looking for some basic information, we've provided a brief rundown below; for more in depth examples of several design styles and maintenance tips, click over to

Typically, a flat roof is said to be much cheaper to install on a home or a business because the overall construction is easier to do. Flat roofs are also said to be a whole lot safer to walk on versus the pitched roof and they are sometimes preferred due to this factor alone. However, even though there are quite a number of benefits that people will enjoy when they make the flat roof their preferred choice, one of the more notable cons is a weakness that appears when it storms or comes up against heavy rains, especially in Toronto with its
volatile weather patterns. Under pressure from precipitation and harsh weather, there is some danger that a flat roof with deteriorate if it has not been installed properly or if it is made from inferior materials. 



Just like the flat roof, the pitched roof has quite a few notches in the "pros" column as well, so it is very important that everyone is familiar with them as they make their decision to buy or pass on a property. Pitched roofs are normally seen in residential areas, although they can be seen in virtually every neighbourhood since they are a staple of twentieth and twenty-first century design in the western world. Pitched roofs will also offer some advantages that the flat roof cannot, like an increase in the ability of the roof to drain as freely as it should. This means a higher probability of weathering severe thunderstorms and rain without the structure being compromised. A
pitched roof is great for residential Toronto owners who want more space since they are often designed for creating a loft or an attic on the top of a home, with that classic A-frame design.  


Pitched or flat roof, which one is the best? The answer is to this question is dependent on several different factors. Therefore, each owner will need to choose which one is the best for their specific needs. While the flat roof may be a better option due to its lesser cost, the pitched roof may be the best choice for those who need more space for an attic or a loft. So, the answer to this question is often reached by considering a number of different factors before a final decision is made.
