Today flat roofs include materials such as copper, asphalt, rubber, fiberglass and green roofs, which all have benefits and negatives. The most recommended products for use by flat roofers are those known as GRP (glass reinforced plastic roofs) or EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer).

The installation has no joints or seams and can be used on flat roofs as well as balconies, valleys, dormers or box gutters.
