Options for Flat Roof Systems

Flat roof systems are available in a variety of materials and styles, and can be chosen based upon the needs and requirements of your building. Some of the most popular flat roof systems include the following.

Thermoplastic Polyolefin (TPO) Flat Roofing Systems

TPO flat roof systems are created with a single-ply roof membrane, constructed from ethylene propylene rubber. TPO roofs are a great option because they are highly versatile, strong, and durable. TPO roofing systems also offer great efficiency in all types of weather. These systems are resilient, prove resistance to algae, mold, and lichen, and are unlikely to discolor. TPO flat roof systems are well suited to roofs with storm and secret gutters, valleys, and troughs because of their superb, robust nature. TPO roofing systems are also great options for roofs with difficult details.

Modified Bitumen Fully Adhered Flat Roof Systems

Modified Bitumen Fully Adhered Flat Roof Systems are created in two or three layers in which a hot tar application is first administered, followed by felt sheets. This is doubled or tripled up to maximize the roof’s watertight efficiency. These types of flat roof systems are a versatile option for new flat roof coverings.

EPDM Flat Roofing Systems

EPDM roofing is a flat roofing system made from ethylene propylene diene terpolymer. This is an extremely durable synthetic roofing membrane that is often used in the repair or replacement of an existing roof or as cover for various types of new construction for low-slope buildings. EPDM roofing can be installed in one of several application methods including fully adhered or mechanically attached with the seams sealed using liquid adhesives or specially formulated tape.
