Flat and Rubber Roofing

Rubber Roofing Services in Pennsylvania

Rubber roofing is a great solution for low-sloped or flat roofs. It offers unrivaled protection from the elements in a simple installation while limiting your financial exposure. They are lightweight and long-lasting. Many of the products are installed in a single piece which reduces the potential for leaks. Once a product is installed there is minimal maintenance required to keep up the life of the roof. If a leak does occur, repairs can be made efficiently and with little cost.

Commercial and Residential

What is a Flat Roof?

Residential flat roofs are a type of roofing system that has a horizontal or nearly horizontal surface. The term “flat” is somewhat misleading, as flat roofs are actually slightly pitched in order to allow for proper drainage. The slope of a flat roof is typically between 10 and 15 degrees. This specific design feature goes against the traditional sloped roofs found on most homes, making flat roofs a rather unique and interesting choice for residential buildings.

What is a Rubber Roof?

Rubber roofing installation is a much easier and quicker process than asphalt or slate roofing installation. A seamless roll is generally the most cost effective and energy efficient form of rubber roofing. It is very unlikely to leak or crack because there are no seams for water to flow underneath.

Most Common Types I

EPDM: Also called, ethylene propylene diene monomer, flat roofs are just a fancy way to say that these roofs are made from a synthetic blend of rubber. Most often used for large office spaces, it’s a durable and affordable option for flat roofing. EPDM flat roofs are easy to install, but they’re also prone to leakages.

Most Common Types II

EPDM is primarily available in black and white and is commonly used for flat roofs because it has the added benefit of being UV-resistant which means less chance of cracking due to sun damage.

The most common complaint about EPDM rubber roofing is that it can be quite slippery when wet—but this isn’t a major concern when appropriately installed on structures with little foot traffic.

Rubber Roof Systems

Rubber roofing systems are also called single-ply membranes. The three main types of single-ply membranes are EPDM, TPO and PVC. EPDM is the original rubber roof and lowest-cost option. It is adhered to the roof deck and then utilizes a special tape to seal the seams. PVC roofing membranes are bonded together by hot-air welded seams and remain leak free for much of the service life. TPO is like PVC although it is more environmentally friendly and recyclable.
