Flat Roofing

Your Guide To

Flat Roofing

In many ways, an angled roof does a pretty good job of keeping water from leaking into a home. With a flat roof, though, it’s not so easy. Any hole or seam poses a threat to keeping water out. Snow buildup is also a problem, especially in high volume snow areas, like the Northeast. This buildup can be heavy, putting enormous stress on your flat roof.

It is perceived that installing flat roofing costs less than that of the usual pitched roof. This is not so. The costs are virtually the same. However, the cost depends much on the material you use.

Here is a list of 3 materials used for a flat roof installation:

1. PVC Membrane
2. TPO
3. EPDM rubber

PVC Roofing

PVC is the most popular material in this list by far, so much so that many roofers that install flat roofing will not work with any other material. Let’s see how else PVC stacks up. The industry standard for the material’s breaking point is 220 PPI. PVC’s breaking point is 300 PPI. Long story short, this is a strong durable material and is worth the investment.
