Determining whether your flat roof needs to be repaired or replaced depends on the type of material that's on your roof and the condition it's in. Our roofing professionals will evaluate your roof and recommend the best solution. Here are the most common flat roofing materials that we work with:
Popular for many years, modified bitumen roofing has largely been replaced by more affordable alternatives. Modified bitumen typically comes in 3 or 4-foot-wide rolls. The material is rolled out so that the seams overlap. The seams are fused with a torch or sealed with special adhesive. A reflective coating is typically added for durability and to reduce heat absorption.
Rubber roofing is one of the most common flat roof styles. Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) looks and feels like a rubber inner tube. EPDM comes in large rolls and is well-suited for virtually any large, flat roof surface. The flexible rubber material is glued to the roof substrate and to adjacent EPDM sections. The material can also be installed with mechanical fasteners. Because of its dark black color, EPDM rubber roofing absorbs a lot of heat. To prolong the life of this single-ply roof and reduce cooling costs, a reflective top coating is typically applied.
Thermo-plastic olephine (TPO) is a fabric-like roofing material. TPO is a newer roofing technology that's still being refined by many manufacturers. The material comes in rolls of different sizes, making it suitable for a variety of flat roof applications. It can be installed with adhesives, mechanical fasteners or heat welding. Like EPDM rubber roofing, TPO requires a clean, uniform substrate; because of this, it can’t be installed directly over existing roofing material.
