I honestly wouldnt recommend a flat roof, it's not only a potential hazard with water, but snow load. And after this past season......well you get the idea.

I agree, Connie, a flat roof is not very safe in climates of heavy snowfall. Lots of accumulated snow can damage and warp a flat roof. However, flat roofs can be great in warmer, more dry climates. They are also perfect if you are interested in installing solar panels on your roof. With a slanted roof, it can be very dangerous to walk on the roof to clean or make repairs. A flat roof makes it very safe and convenient to navigate if needed.
