There would be lots of ways to model a flat roof.

Just a couple of ideas...

How about a roof with 0 pitch, or a slab

Do you need to model the slight slopes that will be required for Roof drainage? Then maybe a mesh.

Does the roof have a constant profile? then try a creating a custom profile.

I'm sure there are many more approaches you could explore depending on your needs.

Good luck
