What is the Best Flat Roofing Solution?

When it comes to flat roofing, choosing the right system is crucial, especially in areas that experience extreme weather conditions. Extreme weather can take a toll on any roof, and flat roofs are no exception. In this blog, we will discuss the best flat roof systems for extreme weather.

  1. EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Terpolymer) Roofing System:

EPDM is the most popular flat roofing system for extreme weather conditions. It is made of a synthetic rubber material that is durable, resistant to UV radiation, and can withstand harsh weather conditions. EPDM is a single-ply membrane that is easy to install and maintain. It comes in large rolls, making it ideal for large flat roofs, and has a lifespan of up to 50 years.

  1. TPO (Thermoplastic Olefin) Roofing System:

TPO is another popular flat roofing system for extreme weather conditions. It is made of a synthetic rubber material that is resistant to UV radiation and harsh weather conditions. TPO is a single-ply membrane that is easy to install and maintain. It comes in large rolls, making it ideal for large flat roofs, and has a lifespan of up to 30 years.

  1. PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) Roofing System:

PVC is a flat roofing system that is durable and resistant to harsh weather conditions. It is made of a synthetic plastic material that is resistant to UV radiation, chemicals, and fire. PVC is a single-ply membrane that is easy to install and maintain. It comes in large rolls, making it ideal for large flat roofs, and has a lifespan of up to 20 years.

  1. Modified Bitumen Roofing System:

Modified bitumen is a flat roofing system that is made of asphalt and reinforced with fiberglass or polyester. It is a multi-layered system that is durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions. Modified bitumen is easy to install and maintain and has a lifespan of up to 20 years.

  1. Built-Up Roofing System:

Built-up roofing is a traditional flat roofing system that is made of layers of tar and gravel or asphalt and felt. It is a multi-layered system that is durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions. Built-up roofing is not easy to install, but it has a lifespan of up to 30 years.

In conclusion, when it comes to extreme weather conditions, EPDM is the best flat roofing system. It is durable, resistant to UV radiation and harsh weather conditions, and has a lifespan of up to 50 years. However, TPO, PVC, modified bitumen, and built-up roofing are also good options for flat roofs. It’s important to choose the right system for your specific needs and consult with a professional roofing company for installation and maintenance.

    Everyone was a pleasure to work with. They were punctual, professional, friendly, and finished the job ahead of schedule. They left the work area immaculate before leaving. I’ve enclosed some before/after photos as a testament to the great work they do.

    S&S just replaced our 45 year old slider and the difference is AMAZING!
    They worked quickly, cleanly, and efficiently. The price was competitive.
    I would definitely use them again and recommend to others needing a new sliding glass door.

    S&S has wonderful, caring, and hard-working employees that care about the customer and the customers needs. The craftsmanship that went into doing our deck was unmatched. They made our deck beautiful!
    In the past we also had them install a full length of the deck awning. We love their workmanship!
