Flat roofs provide a rugged durability unmatched by other roofing styles. Used often for commercial and industrial applications, flat roofs require a different installation process than pitched or dome roofs, as well as different maintenance procedures over the years. The materials used for flat roofing is different than the metal, asphalt shingles, or cedar shakes you typically expect on a pitched roof because a flat roof is expected to perform on an industrial level toward maintaining your building.
TPO membranes are an eco-friendly building solution which demonstrates how technology has improved building materials and methods. The roof can qualify for an Energy Star rating because of the way it reflects heat during the summer to lower cooling bills. The design of TPO roofing layers includes ThermoPlastic Olefin and a layer of polyester which adds structural strength to the roof's framing system. TPO roofing systems are nearly indestructible by North American weather patterns and will serve your building well for years to come.
Rubber membranes are a more traditional means than TPO of protecting a flat roof. Rubber membranes also provide a durable reliability which will last for years with a minimum of annual maintenance. The membranes are fastened mechanically to the roof surface, and often covered with smooth gravel as an additional layer of protection and water dispersion. Today's rubber materials are constructed with technologies unavailable a few decades ago, and provide a great roofing material which won't fail if annual maintenance routines are followed to re-spread the gravel and assure chimneys and exhaust vents are properly sealed.
