Most commercial roofing systems are “flat” (which actually means low-sloped). As such, they are more vulnerable to pooling water and other moisture-related issues than traditional steep-sloped roofs, which are better at shedding water. Standing water on a flat roof can quickly lead to major, costly damage.

No other way around it—dry rot happens because of moisture. When wood is exposed to water, it may attract the spores of a certain type of fungi that breaks down cellulose and hemicellulose, the substances that make wood strong. This leads to collapse, and, in turn, a collapse of your home as well.
All roofing materials suffer from daily wear and tear and are also susceptible to damage from extreme weather conditions. Flat roofs are particularly vulnerable to damage from hot weather.
Summer is one of the best times to enjoy the outdoors. If your home has a deck, why not take advantage of the warm weather and invest in some decorations to make the space more pleasant for lounging and entertaining?
