Types of Flat Roof and Low Slope Roofing
When it comes to flat roofs and low-slope roofing, business owners and homeowners have many options. Some of the most common options include:
- EPDM roofing: EPDM stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer. It’s a long-lasting membrane roofing material that is a great option for businesses and homes with flat roofs. EPDM is rubber roofing that has the lowest carbon footprint among comparable single-ply roofing systems. Its dark color can help buildings retain heat during cold winter months. In some cases, a light-colored coating can be applied over the top.
- TPO roofing: TPO stands for thermoplastic polyolefin. It’s a single-ply roofing membrane used to cover the surface of a flat roof. TPO is actually made out of a blend of two different kinds of rubber. It’s light-colored, which can help buildings reflect heat and reduce cooling costs during the hottest summer months.
- Modified bitumen: This single-ply rolled roof shields your building from ice and water. It’s unrolled, heated and stuck to the surface of the roof during installation. New peel-and-stick versions are available as well.
- Built-up roof (BUR): BUR roofs are often found on older buildings. They are traditional hot-tar-and-gravel roofs, and their gravel surfaces can be visually appealing when a window overlooks a rooftop. Because they are so heavy, buildings with BUR roofs sometimes have to be reinforced to bear the weight.
