Flat Residential Roofing


EPDM (ethylene propylene diene terpolymer) roofing is a popular choice for commercial and residential roofing as it is cost-effective, durable and well-suited to low-slope or completely flat roofs, though it can be configured for any flat roof type. A long-lasting polymer blend that can withstand the elements, EPDM’s application is simple but does require the expertise of professional commercial roofers, particularly at the larger scale. Probably the biggest perk of EPDM roofing is its affordability. Not only are the materials themselves relatively cost-effective, but the residential roof installation process is also quick and easy.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing has quickly become the standard roof that goes with a good reason. It’s for good reason – metal is one of the most durable roofing materials to install, however, the initial investment is much higher upfront than other flat roof solutions. The initial cost weighs up nicely against its longevity and ease of maintenance though. Metal roofs are incredibly tough, lightweight, easy to install and are fireproof. With a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from, you can achieve virtually any look you want for your home.

Modified Bitumen

Modified bitumen is a popular roofing material installed on commercial and residential buildings, particularly those with low-slope or flat roofing systems. Made from asphalt, the standard modified bitumen system is a two-ply system installed in rolls. It is easy to repair and maintain, and many experts rate its tear-resistance as one of modified bitumen’s strongest features against other flat roofing alternatives.

PVC Roofing

PVC (thermoplastic polyvinyl chloride) is a single-ply membrane very commonly used for flat roofing systems. Being a type of plastic, it offers homeowners affordability alongside durability. Compared with other roofing membranes, PVC retains a high reflectivity value over time, which offers higher energy efficiency than most roofs. Strong seam bonding and puncture resistance make this material one of the most water-resistant in the flat roofing industry.
