What is Residential Low Slope Roofing?

Finding the right products for your low-slope roof


Residential low slope roofing can generally be divided up into two broad categories: larger flat roofed applications (low slope) such as residential condominium complexes, row homes, and town houses and smaller applications such as residential porch and garage transitions from the main home where the slope of the roof changes dramatically from steep slope to low slope on the same structure.

Large Residential Low Slope Roofing Projects

For the larger residential low slope roofing applications, CertainTeed has a host of products and systems available including BUR (Built-Up Roofing) systems, APP Modified Bitumen systems, and SBS Modified Bitumen systems, including many products that feature CertainTeed’s CoolStar surfaces that meet  Energy Star requirements, can be used to comply with the 2016 California Title 24 Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements, and may qualify for federal tax rebates when installed as a residential low slope roofing product.

Small Residential Low Slope Roofing Projects

For the smaller residential low slope roofing applications such as garage and porch transitions, CertainTeed offers an excellent solution in our Flintlastic SA, self-adhering SBS modified bitumen roofing system. Flintlastic SA products feature easy and clean application and also have granulated surfaces with colors that coordinate with CertainTeed shingles providing the homeowner with a complete and coordinated solution for roof designs that transition from steep to low slope.
