Flat roofs are known for looking more modern and stylish. They are attractive, and can make any building look sleek and professional.
Flat roofs are a very specialized type of roofs that require a skilled and certified installer. Installation of a tar and gravel, torch-on roof or other membrane type must be done by an experienced and qualified roofer. There are much tighter tolerances for application techniques and drainage is inherently much slower. This means a poorly installed system will experience leaks or in the worst case, collapse.

Flat Roof Types
Commercial TPO Flat Roof
Thermoplastic TPO or PVC Flat Roofing systems – Thermoplastic membranes are seamed by heat welding with hot air or solvent welding. Once installed and exposure to the environment, the membrane’s individual polymer components form a highly stable, synthetic rubber material. TPO roofs provide high resistance to a broad range of chemicals and is suited for commercial, industrial and institutional applications.
Commercial EPDM Flat Roof:
EPDM Roofing (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is durable and resistant to general wear and tear and an excellent material for flat or low slope roofing. EPDM roofing is a synthetic rubber that acts as a roofing membrane special for flat roofs.
EPDM roofing membrane is versatile and offers superior flexibility, high strength, and outstanding weathering in practically all climates – ranging from -45 to 100 degrees Celsius with no signs of aging. EPDM roofs will not crack, split, or peel, and is completely resistant to atmospheric pollution.
EPDM roofing is also environmentally friendly, and is unaffected by UV light and ozone. An EPDM roof system has a life expectancy of about 20 years, during which next to no maintenance is required.
Built Up Roof Membrane
A built-up roof (Smooth Built-Up, Ballasted Built-Up, or Tar and Gravel) is a class of low-slope roof that consist of laying down several layers of tar and water resistant materials and then covered with gravel. Many old buildings with low slope or flat roofs are topped with built-up roofing made from layers of asphalt-coated roofing felt.
The top layer is usually covered with rock or gravel, which serves as a ballast to hold the roofing material down and protect it from UV damage. Built-Up Roofs with gravel surfacing are also known as Tar and Gravel roofs. The typical life span of a built-up roof is 10 to 15 years depending on weather conditions.
