Every Detail Counts
When working on a flat roof every detail counts. A flat roof not properly installed or maintained can cause many problems. A Flat roof needs to be properly secured so no water can penetrate the building or home. We take great pride in our work and make sure installation and the materials used are kept to the highest standard.
Flat Roof Options
What is Modified Bitumen
Modified bitumen roof systems can be installed with the common torch method, asphalts, or cold adhesives.This type of roofing is an evolution of asphalt roofing. It is made from asphalt and a variety of rubber modifiers and solvents. There are several ways of connecting pieces of this material. In a heat application process, the seams are heated to melt the asphalt together and create a seal. There is also hot-mopped application, similar to how conventional built-up roofs are installed. Cold-applied adhesives and self-adhesive membranes are two of the more recent options.
Restoration/ Roof Coating
What is Roof Coating?
A roof coating is a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane. It has elastic properties that allow it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage. Typical roof coating dry film thickness vary from paint film thickness (plus or minus 3 dry mils) to more than 40 dry mils. This means a roof coating actually becomes the top layer of a composite roof membrane and underlying system. As such, the roof coating is the topmost layer of protection for the membrane, receiving the impact of sunlight (both infrared and ultraviolet (UV), rain, hail and physical damage.
What is EPDM
EPDM is an extremely durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide. Its two primary ingredients, ethylene, and propylene are derived from oil and natural gas. EPDM is available in both black and white and is sold a broad variety of widths. EPDM can be installed either fully adhered, mechanically attached or ballasted, with the seams of the roofing system sealed with liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.
TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) Roofing
What is TPO
Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) is a single-ply reflective roofing membrane made from polypropylene and ethylene-propylene rubber polymerized together. It is typically installed in fully adhered or mechanically attached system, allowing the white membrane to remain exposed throughout the life of the roof. TPO is the fastest growing commercial roofing membrane on the market today, having grown from 23% to 41% in the U.S. in seven years, as of 2013.
