FLAT ROOFING

WHAT IS IT FLAT ROOFING?

Flat roofing is an intricate and popular form of roofing that we specialize in. Did you know that flat roofing isn't even flat? It has a very low slope between 1/4 to 1/2 inch per foot, allowing the roof to drain water while maintaining a low and modern profile.

This low slope allows water to hold for a longer period of time ad therefore needs a special kind of material to keep it water tight.

Many flat roof designs feature overlapping shingles over continuous, monolithic surfaces.

TYPES OF FLAT ROOFING

There are three popular choices for flat roofing materials:

Membrane Roofing

MEMBRANE ROOFING

Membrane roofing (or EPDM) is a rubber roofing solution that is durable, water proof, and lightweight. It is engineered to resist sun damage and is an exceptionally versatile material to work with.

Cheap and simple to maintain, this material will help you save on costs and on repairs!

Pros:
- Inexpensive maintenance
- Lightweight
- Leaks are rare
- Retains heat

Cons:
- Pipes and Chimneys can make installation tricky
- Prone to external damage
- Seams can introduce leaks

BUILT-UP ROOFING (BUR)

Built Up Roofing employs traditional hot-tar-and-gravel material to your roof. It consists of layers that help keep the roof protected and sturdy. The bottom layer (or two) consists of insulation board and multiple layers of tar/asphalt and roofing felt that alternate. The top layer consists of gravel, creating a thick, tough, and seamless roof.

Built Up Roofing

Pros:
- Excellent water, weather, and UV protection
- Low maintenance
- Highly resistant
- Attractive style

Cons:
- Slow to install
- Heavy
- Not flexible
- Finding a leak is difficult

Modified Bitumen Roofing

MODIFIED BITUMEN ROOFING

Developed in the 1960's, Modified Bitumen Roofing became a lighter alternative to Built Up Roofing. It is a flexible asphalt based material with a mineral top that is also less smelly, messy, and hot compared to Built Up Roofing. The conventional installation method is known as "Torch-Down".

Pros:
- Easy to install
- High elasticity
- Low maintenance
- Better durability than BUR

Cons:
- May require a torch
- Less attractive
- Application is a fire hazard
- Overlapping joints must be adhered correctly to avoid leaks.

FLAT ROOF ON WINTER

Flat roofs are less prone to snow and ice accumulation. Unlike sloped roofs, flat roofs do not have a steep pitch that can cause snow and ice to slide off. This can be beneficial in areas with heavy snowfall, as it can help to prevent damage from heavy snow loads and ice dams. Additionally, flat roofs are generally easier to clear of snow and ice, making it easier for building owners to maintain their buildings during the winter months.
