Different Types of Flat Roofing

There are four major types of flat roofs including metal, EPDM, built-up, and modified bitumen.

  • Metal flat roofs: These are the most common and are typically made out of aluminum, which is exceptionally durable. This material lasts more than thirty years and reflects heat, making it an energy efficient option. As for downsides, you won’t be able to install any other kind of roofing on top of metal flat roofs as you could with asphalt shingles, for example. So, in the case of a renovation, the entire roof would need to be demolished and replaced.
  • 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. So, it’s important that the flat roof installation contractors make sure the seams are sprayed with a protective sealant. These coatings will add cost but are well worth it to prevent water damage.
  • Built-up flat roofs: BUR roofs are a mixture of tar and gravel. This option has become popular because they’re aesthetically pleasing, they make your home more energy efficient, and they are quite durable thanks to the many layers. There are some downsides though. The layers of built-up flat roofing can make it very heavy, so your home will need a thorough evaluation to be sure the structure can bear the weight. Plus, the installation process creates a hazardous area so you won’t be able to live in your house during the renovation.
  • Modified bitumen: Flat roofs are an affordable option but aren’t often used due to their delicate installation process. Because this flat roofing is secured using a blowtorch, it’s imperative that only seasoned flat roofing contractors do the installation. For most people, the dangers outweigh this flat roof cost but, if you’re willing to go for it, it’s a great budget-friendly option.

Reasons to Install Flat Roofing

One of the main reasons people opt for flat roofing even though it’s not very common is because of just that – it’s not very common. You’ve probably seen celebrity-designed homes with modern floor to ceiling windows and a sleek flat rooftop. Those are the types of unique properties that will benefit from a durable flat roof.

Another reason people might choose flat roofing is that it’s energy efficient. Due to their large surface area, they’re an excellent option for those wishing to capture solar energy to power their home, and many of these roofing options reflect heat to keep your energy costs low.

As with anything, there will be downsides, and flat roofs are no different. Since there’s no slope on these roofs for water to run off of after a storm, for example, it’s common for flat roofs to have water build-up in one area or another. Plus, they’re usually made of a more porous material than say a clay roof tile, making them even more susceptible to water damage.

    Ian with Cairn roofing showed up when he said he would and got the repair done exactly how he said he would. The first appointment I had turned out to be rainy. I got a phone call early enough to reschedule that I appreciated so I could … More plan my day accordingly. Great communication and work. Thanks so much for the attention to detail.

    Ian and his crew are exceptional and most importantly they stay with you after the job is done and stand by their warranty (supported me several times post roof install). Great company. Highly recommend

    Best of the Best!!! Hats off to Ian and his crew at Cairn Roofing. In today's world finding reliable, fast and efficient work is challenging. Ian's team was the real deal. They were not only efficient but very professional, friendly, … More thorough and informative during the whole process of a multi-unit gutter repair. Thank you sincerely from the team at Officers Row in Lowry!

    Cairn Roofing's work was excellent, and the communication with Ian was fantastic throughout. We had a leaky roof deck whose membrane needed replacing. We requested for and subsequently had Cairn install a fire-rated, class A membrane … More because we live in the WUI. Ian went above and beyond in answering all of our questions and concerns. He also followed up and did an inspection. Great customer service; this is how a company should be run. Well done, Ian!

    I absolutely will be using Cairn Roofing again! They were so professional and personal! We really needed a small gutter put on quickly. We were getting our house painted and wanted it painted too. Ian was wonderful and got it taken care … More of quickly for us. Now it’s painted and we don’t have to worry about water damage and it looks great too!

    The whole experience was very professional. Called them to come out and look at my roof because of a bad wind storm that we had. Came right out the next day and inspected our roof. He explained what needed to be done. I did an insurance … More claim. He was right here when the insurance inspector came. Mr Eric took care of all the paperwork within 5 day I had my check. They came out and repair my roof very professional work cleaned the yard and left no mess. I didn't have to do anything Mr.Eric took care of everything for us. Great job.
